China eyes eight cruise ships to serve South China Sea

Up to eight Chinese ships will offer cruises to the South China Sea over the next five years, a state-run newspaper said on Thursday, as Beijing continues to promote tourism to the disputed waters.

Sanya International Cruise Development Company, a joint venture by COSCO Shipping, China National Travel Service (HK) Group  and China Communications Construction, will buy between five and eight ships, the official China Daily reported.

It will also build four cruise liner docks in Sanya, a Chinese resort city on the southern island province of Hainan, the paper added.

Liu Junli, chairman of Sanya International Cruise, said the company is already operating the “Dream of the South China Sea” cruise ship and plans to add another two cruise ships by next summer, the report said.
