Royal Caribbean eyeing Taiwan cruise market


Taiwan's cruise market future is looking bright with local and international cruise ship operators taking advantage of new routes, according to the Taiwan International Ports co.

Taiwan's Keelung Port official Jeffrey Tsao said some new cruise companies, including Royal Caribbean, are eyeing the Taiwan cruise market. Royal Caribbean is already planning on sending its Voyager of the Seas ship three times to Keelung this August and September .

"Taiwan's market for international cruise tourism is huge as our location is good for travel in Asia," he said.
