Resorts World One made its maiden voyage to Okinawa from Hong Kong, having departed from Hong Kong on October 15, stopping over at Naha yesterday and arrived in Miyakojima today.
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. The Okinawa tourism bureau also made special arrangements to welcome disembarking guests in Naha with a cultural performance.
“We are excited to expand our itineraries with Okinawa as our new destination for our five-night cruises aboard the Resorts World One from Hong Kong,” said 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.”
In conjunction with the cruise to Okinawa, Resorts World Cruises further collaborated with Japan Agriculture (JA) Okinawa to bring some of its renowned Wagyu beef for the Resorts World One, as well as for Genting Dream. Guests will get the opportunity to participate in the JA Okinawa Wagyu Beef Cooking Demonstrations, and savour authentic Okinawan cuisine prepared using fresh farm-to-table Okinawa local products at selected onboard specialty restaurants between November 15 and December 15.
The ship offers monthly departures from Hong Kong to Okinawa on selected Sundays for the five-night cruise, with fares starting from HK$3,520 (US$450) per guest based on twin sharing.
