TIRUN offers all-inclusive ‘Fly – Cruise’ packages to Hong Kong

Packages available during the holiday season in May-June and extend until August 2018.

From the primitive beauty of the coasts of Nha Trang, Vietnam to the tranquility of Okinawa, Japan, exotic oriental destinations are just a cruise away as TIRUN, the exclusive India representative of Royal Caribbean International, now extends its all-inclusive fly-cruise holiday packages to Indian guests travelling to Hong Kong. Royal Caribbean International in association with Hong Kong Tourism Board and Cathay Pacific Airways, recently announced fly-cruise packages from Hong Kong to exciting ports in the South-East Asian region. For the first time, these cruises will commence during the Indian holiday season in May and June, extending until August 2018.

The ‘All Inclusive’ Fly Cruise Package from Hong Kong includes a cruise on Royal Caribbean International, direct return flights on Cathay Pacific Airways from our 6 major metro cities – New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Kolkata and Hyderabad, and, free Ocean Park tickets for children (3-11 years) and accompanying parents.

With this offering, RCI and HKTB have collaborated for the 2nd time in the past two years. Last year, the two stakeholders offered a packaged RCI Hong Kong product that included cruise and land activity in the form of free Ocean Park tickets. The package was a runaway success and the world renowned cruise liner expects to achieve greater success this year with an enhanced proposition that spells more value and convenience for the traveler.

Thanks to its affordability, flexibility of duration and comprehensive services offered, we are certain that these cruises originating from Hong Kong will see a high number of Indian guests and will emerge as a favoured cruise plan opted by a large number of Indian travelers!”

Puneet Kumar, Senior Manager, Market Development – India, Hong Kong Tourism Board, said, “Hong Kong is a perfect city to add pre or post your cruise holiday, you can turn your Asian cruise into the trip of a lifetime.
