The Penghu islands, off the coast of Taiwan, are the subject of new construction plans to build a cruise port to meet increasing demand by cruise lines as outlined by Taiwan's Ministry of Transportation and Communications.

The new plans will be proposed soon with the hopes the new port would make Penghu a destination for international cruise lines such as Royal Caribbean.  The plans aim to accomodate Royal Caribbean because the company has expressed interest several times to dock in Penghu.

Penghu has long fought for the relocation of the military base on the archipelago in order to make way for an international harbor.

The plan is to enlarge and add infrastructure to the current harbor and should take two years from the start date.
