Sabah cruise tourism booms as Celebrity ConstellationMalaysian state Sabah’s popularity as a cruise destination is on the rise. This is evident by the latest decision made by Malta-registered Celebrity Constellation to to make a port call in Kota Kinabulu in the state.


Sabah state Tourism Board chairman Joniston Bangkuai, who was on hand to welcome the ship, hoped ‘Celebrity Cruises’ would make Kota Kinabalu a regular port of call in the future.


He said last year, 28 cruise ships carrying a total of 23,570 passengers came to Sabah “Kota Kinabalu is a nice city and I believe most of our guests enjoyed the brief stop-over here,” said ship captain Michael Karatzas.


The 1,000-room cruise ship with 2,170 passengers and 950 crew members on board arrived at the port at 7am on February 16th, for an eight-hour stop-over before departing for Singapore.


The ship’s guests took full advantage of the stop-over to tour places of interest and shop in the state capital.
