Hong Kong’s Chinese New Year Fireworks – Legend!
Luxury cruise ship Legend of the Seas will sail three hours late for a 5-night Asian cruise out of Hong Kong next February, but passengers certainly won’t be complaining: it’s a deliberate delay so they can witness Hong Kong’s spectacular Chinese New Year celebrations around Victoria Harbour.
Originally scheduled to sail at 6pm on February 15 2010 for a day at sea, a day each in Taipei and Hualien in Taiwan and another day at sea before returning to Hong Kong, Legend of the Seas will now sail at 9pm so passengers can enjoy the fireworks from the deck or their private balconies.
A 7-night package through ecruising.travel includes return air and taxes from Sydney, a night pre-cruise and another post-cruise at the Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel, 5-nights aboard Legend of the Seas with all meals, entertainment and a range of activities from a miniature golf course to a rock-climbing wall, a casino and spa.
And ecruising.travel will throw in for free return Airport Express bus travel airport/hotel/airport, Hong Kong Peak Tram Pass, Discover Hong with the 360 Cable Car Experience and a 24-hour MTR Pass valued at a total of HK364 (approx AU$60) if the package is booked by
