With restrictions lifted and ships sailing from mainland Chinese homeports to both Japan and South Korea, the Chinese cruise market is back in action for the end of 2023 and set to grow into 2024 and beyond, as the resumption of travel, start up of local brands and the re-entry of western brands into China drive it forward.
Adora Cruises, which is set to be China’s number one brand by capacity in 2024, started service at the end of September out of Tianjin with the former Costa Mediterranea.
A newbuild, the Adora Magic City, is set to debut on Jan. 1, sailing from Shanghai, with a second sister ship expected soon after.
While Adora is the big news, Viking’s joint venture with China Merchants has been sailing since 2021; Blue Dream started up earlier this year; Tianjin Orient started sailing in September with a former Princess ship, and both Royal Caribbean and MSC will be modern hardware into the market in 2024.
