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.
