Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia is on course to welcome more than half a million cruise passengers this year led by Penang and then Port Klang.
Growth for the coming years also looks strong.
Princess will be bringing the Sapphire Princess ship for a four-month season from November 2014 to February 2015.
“With its fascinating architectural landscapes and rich melting pot of cultures, Malaysia is definitely an exciting destination.
Its cultural and natural attractions are bound to appeal to international and cruise vacationers alike,” said Farriek Tawfik, Princess Cruises Southeast Asia director.
“In terms of demand, increasingly affluent customers will help to set the stage for a positive outlook on the country’s cruise market,” Farriek concluded. [30/10/13]
