Okinawa welcomes Resort World One. Resorts World Cruises commences cruises from Hong Kong to Okinawa
Departing from Hong Kong on 15 October 2023, Resorts World One arrives in Naha and Miyakojima on 17 and 18 October 2023 respectively, offering monthly departures from Hong Kong to Okinawa on selected Sundays*.
Voted as one of the Top 10 Best Islands in Asia for the Conde Nast Traveller Reader’s Choice Awards 2023, Okinawa is an all-time favourite paradise destination for many travellers. Getting there will be a breeze aboard the Resorts World One with cruise fares starting from HK$ 3,520 per guest based on twin sharing.
To commemorate this milestone and joyous occasion, a special welcome event was held in Naha to celebrate Resorts World One’s first arrival into the capital city of Okinawa. As part of the ceremony, Mr. Hiroshi Teruya, Executive Vice President, Naha Port Authority; Mr. Yukimasa Adaniya, Managing Director, Agricultural Cooperative Association of Okinawa Prefecture (JA Okinawa); Mr. Hiroki Matori, Senior Executive Director, Okinawa Convention & Visitors Bureau (OCVB), together with Mr. Michael Goh, President of Resorts World Cruises officiated the ship’s inaugural arrival. In addition, the Okinawa tourism bureau also made special arrangements to welcome disembarking guests in Naha with a dazzling cultural performance.
“We are excited to expand our itineraries with Okinawa as our new destination for our 5-Night cruises aboard the Resorts World One from Hong Kong. Okinawa has so much to offer and we look forward to visiting beyond Naha and Miyakojima in the near future,” said Mr. Michael Goh, President of Resorts World Cruises. “As we will be calling monthly to Okinawa, we thank the local authorities for their ongoing support as we continue to work closely together to grow the inbound tourism for Japan and for the overall regional cruise tourism industry,” he added.
Taking a cruise vacation to Okinawa offers a new experience altogether, which promises to be fun, unique and memorable. It’s really one of the best ways to get an overall feel of Okinawa and to visit the different destinations within the Okinawa islands, minus the hassle of taking different modes of transportation, checking-in and out of hotels, packing and unpacking at each destination. Hop on aboard the Resorts World One from Hong Kong, one of the world’s best-connected cities and enjoy a seamless 5-Night Naha – Miyakojima cruise vacation departing from Hong Kong on selected Sundays* every month.
