Cruise ships to serve South China SeaWithin the following five years, eight Chinese ships are scheduled to provide cruise facilities to South China Sea.

 

Five to eight sips would be bought by Sanya International Cruise Development Co Ltd. This organization is actually a joint venture by China Communications Construction Co Ltd, China National Travel Service Group Corp and COSCO Shipping.

 

The company also plans to construct cruise liner docks in the region of Sanya according to a report in a newspaper. The city of Sanya is based in Hainan province in China.

 

Liu Junli, chairman, Sanya International Cruise said that it would operate the cruise ship named ‘Dream of the South China Sea’. Also, it has been planning to add two additional cruise ships within next summer.

 

These cruise ships are scheduled to sail around the South China Sea, Paracels and also the Crescent group of islands.

The report also said that various shops, villas and hotels would be built on the Crescent group of islands.

 

However, it is yet to be known of foreigners would be permitted to travel on these cruises or they would be permitted to travel to South China Sea.

 

China has claimed as much as 90% of the South China Sea that is rich in energy resources. Similarly, Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Brunei have laid claims to different portions of the South China Sea.

 

Hainan Strait Shipping Co had launched the very first cruises that set sail to Paracel islands from China.

 

Beijing has also declared that it is looking forward to build resorts around the South China Sea that resemble the ones in Maldives.
