cruiseFor the very first time in the year 2016, China has witnessed an overwhelming number of outbound cruise ship travellers, as revealed by a report published by the China Cruise & Yacht Industry Association (CCYIA) on Thursday.

 

A total of about 2.12 million Chinese holiday-makers departed from the top 10 major port cities including Shanghai, Haikou, Guangzhou, Yantai, Dalian and Tianjin. The figure marks an increase of 91% year on year.

 

Also the number of overseas cruise tourists who visit the 10 Chinese ports increased to about 8% to 1,38,715 in the year 2016.

 

Guangzhou, Tianjin and Shanghai were the leading three ports of the country of China that had welcomed a large number of passengers last year accounting for about 65%, 16.3% and 7.2% of total inbound and outbound traveler respectively. So, China has actually become the eight largest cruise market of the world, with domestic tourists planning on a greater number of diverse travel experiences in the last few years.

 

Zheng Weilang who is the secretary general of CCYIA and executive vice chairman said that the optimistic cruise industry also has certain issues like poor service that should be highlighted as well as taken care of.

 

Weilang also added that China would make attempts to enhance the manufacturing of cruise liners and also improving the efficiency of its ports as well as its capacity of all its cruise liners.
