The new world-class cruise terminal that's currently being built at the former Kai Tak Runway will take cruise tourism to a new level. The new cruise terminal is expected to commence operation in mid-2013. It will have two alongside berths and will be well equipped with supporting facilities to accommodate the concurrent berthing of two mega cruise vessels (with gross tonnage of up to 220,000).

The new cruise terminal is located at the East Kowloon waterfront and commands spectacular views of Victoria Harbour. It is within easy reach of a number of fascinating attractions including Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple,  Kowloon Walled City Park, Chi Lin Nunnery / Nan Lian Garden, Lei Yue Mun Seafood Bazaar. Also located nearby is Festival Walk. This shopping complex is just 10 minutes away and is home to many of the world's best-known brands.
