Struggling to buy and collect tickets for your next cruise? Discover how easy it is today!


This year, Nanshan International Cultural Exchange & Service Center (NSIC) has teamed up with CMSK Cruise Home Port to bring customers a self-service ticket vending machine (TVM) for buying and collecting tickets. Those days of having to travel all the way to CMSK Cruise Home Port for a single ticket are finally over. 


Now, you can simply collect (or buy) your tickets at NSIC following a visit around Sea World, the nearby promenade, or even after participating in a NSIC event. So convenient!

This self-service TVM offers the same services and schedules available on the official WeChat account of CMSK Cruise Home Port, but unlike WeChat, it provides both Chinese and English services, which is great for foreign nationals.

“I can’t read Chinese, so in the past, I had to ask my friend for help when buying tickets. But now with NSIC’s self-service TVM, I can select English or Chinese, meaning I can do it all by myself. It’s also setup so that I can get my tickets when I’m attending an event here. Sweet!” ~ Alex (U.S.A.)
