Wallem Ship Agency Japan Handles First Cruise Business

Wallem’s Agency team in Japan was delighted to welcome the MSC Lirica recently on her maiden voyage. The vessel arrived in Fukuoka (Hakata) on a sunny day on 29th April with 1,764 passengers and 743 crew onboard before heading back to Shanghai.

This call marks both the first Japanese port for the ship on its inaugural season in Asia and the first cruise call for Wallem’s agency team in Japan; an exciting milestone.

Thanks to Wallem’s strong experience in the cruise business, particularly in Asia (handling over 450 calls across Asia this cruise season), the team made sure that every eventuality was prepared and planned for so that this inaugural call went off without a hitch.

 The MSC Lirica arriving in Fukuoka (Hakata) in Japan

Wallem has been providing port agency services for MSC ships calling at Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand since 2015. With this new business, the Company will now look after MSC calls throughout the Region – meaning also in Hong Kong, Vietnam, the Philippines and Japan.

Following its maiden call, the MSC Lirica will call at other Japanese ports (Nagasaki, Kagoshima, Beppu, Kobe and Yokohama) in future and Wallem Japan will proudly handle these regular weekly calls across Japan.

Wallem Ship Management Ltd. has been presented with the ‘Most Compassionate Employer of Indian Seafarers’ award by the Indian Government’s National Maritime Day Committee.

Award presentation                                                       

Speaking after the ceremony, Captain Passey said that he was proud to accept this seafarer welfare award, “We remain committed to looking after our seafarers throughout their careers with Wallem and we have many programs in place such as our ‘Wellness at Sea’ program to ensure that their safety, health and wellbeing is our top priority. In addition, ‘Women of Wallem’ chapters are active in local communities, providing charitable activities and an important support network for our seafarers’ families.”
 
Wallem has been honoured with this award on three previous occasions (in 2007, 2010 and 2014).

Wallem Ship Agency was proud to welcome three cruise ships, the Queen Mary…

The three cruise ships the Queen Mary 2 (QM2), the Queen Victoria (QV) and the Queen Elizabeth (QE) made a historic triple call to Hong Kong recently – all arriving in the city within a 24 hour period. The vessels, which were docked at both Ocean Terminal and Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, arrived carrying a total of 17,000 people onboard (including crew and guests).

As their appointed agent in Hong Kong, Wallem Ship Agency was proud to welcome the vessels to town.

Despite our vast experience and knowledge in handling 500+ cruise calls a year, Wallem Ship Agency Managing Director Dickson Chin says that this triple call was quite a feat to plan and organise.

"Berth reservations had to be made 2 years in advance and we worked very closely with Carnival UK and with all the relevant local Port and government authorities in the months, days and hours leading up to the call to ensure that everything went smoothly," said Mr Chin.

The three vessels are operated by Cunard Line for Carnival UK which has been one of Wallem’s long term clients in Asia. They are now continuing their respective journeys to Singapore (QV) and to Nha Trang in Vietnam (QE and QM2) respectively.
