“Low efficiency and inaccessible ”

Kai Tak Cruise Terminal
Reviewed April 4, 2018 via mobile

Only way to get here is by car or taxi. No MTR stations near here nor is it easily accessible by bus. Was 100hkd from Tsim sha Tsui to here including 2 luggage.

Was stated to arrive at 1230pm to check in but waited for 4 hours before we were able to board the ship. No refreshment areas like food available while waiting.

Having once arrived by ship here it would seem to be adequate for that purpose. When visiting on a day trip however the lack of transport to main areas such as Tsim Sha Tsui is a problem and must be quite annoying for passengers keen to explore the city. The roof garden is very pleasant but there's not much else. The views of the ship from the roof are disappointing, there seems to be lacking a decent viewing area from which to observe - clearly an architectural oversight which in one critical way defeats the purpose of a viewing garden.

We've onboard cruises in different parts of the world. The arrangement in this terminal is the worst I've encountered. Not sure if it's the problem of Cunard or the terminal's management. Last time we took the Dream Cruise with more than 3000 people onboard at the same time, yet the queuing time was fair. Now with Queen Elizabeth and HK is simply a midway stop, they have serious issues in onboarding the crowd. They don't have enough counters and passengers have to wait for hours in vain. While HK is so famous for it's efficiency, this terminal is defineity a shame.

The new terminal is probably a quieter solution than the old airport. A bit out of town compared to the old terminal though. Buses into the central area and metro 1.2 Kms away.

Kai Tak Cruise Terminal is where all larger cruise ships dock in HK. It is about a 15-20 minute cab ride to Mong Kok, where the action is, or add on another 5-10 minutes to get to Hong Kong Island. The terminal is not in a tourist district, but there is a very large mall called MegaBox that is nearby that you could visit. The terminal does offer bus connections to the nearby MTR station, or if you're energetic, you can walk it.

The terminal itself is enormous and rather empty, being devoid of any restaurants or shops. There is a single money exchange at the taxi stand. Getting to your ship involves a fair amount of walking and escalator trips. I could see a rooftop garden/bar from the ship, but didn't notice any signage on how to get there.

Check-in and boarding the ship was pretty quick. Signage to board the ship was plentiful and easy to follow. Our cruise line (Celebrity) had people giving out welcome drinks too, which was a nice touch.
