About Shekou’s New Cruise Ship Port
The homeport of Shekou’s new cruiseships is Prince Bay. A new development which hopes to become the only modern international homeport in Southern China. There will be 2 berths to accommodate 2 vessels at once. The bigger one can fit in the largest cruise ship in the world, which is more than 225,000GT and the other one can accommodate cruise ships up to 120,000GT.
