Three years into its cruise operation, Bohai Ferry is developing and maturing its one-ship product.
The company’s deployment portfolio has grown rapidly since its launch from Yantai sailing to Korea and Japan. To start out the year, the Chinese Taishan offered cruises from Haikou sailing to Vietnam before moving to Xiamen, where it sailed 74 cruises to Japan through July before moving to Fangcheng to sail to Vietnamese ports in August.
Other new port calls this year included Hibikinada and Vladivostok.
As deployment develops, a company spokesperson said they plan to expand itineraries to visit ports in Cambodia, Thailand and other countries in Southeast Asia.
