A year since its inception, Resorts World Cruises has wasted no time enriching the value of its sailings departing from Kaohsiung and Hong Kong with the additional of the 90-island archipelago of Penghu, located off the east coast of Taiwan.

Michael Goh, president of Resorts World Cruises, said the addition of Penghu “will greatly enhance” the value of the four-day, three-night cruise, departing from homeport Kaohsiung from 10 April and arriving in Penghu the next day.

“Resorts World One will grow and increase the inbound and outbound tourism, which will enhance and create new economic opportunities for Kaohsiung, Penghu and across Taiwan,” he added.

For guests departing from Kaohsiung, the four-day, three-night cruise will depart on Mondays, calling at Penghu on Tuesdays and Hong Kong on Wednesdays before returning to Kaohsiung on Thursdays.

Kaohsiung guests can also choose to depart on Thursdays and debark in Hong Kong on Fridays for a two-night land stay option, before re-joining the ship on Sundays to return to Kaohsiung by Mondays.
