Hong Kong-based Profit Summit Deluxe Cruise partner with Thailand's Eastime Shipping for China – Thai cruises.

China’s rapidly increasing involvement in cruise shipping investment has been underlined by a recently completed first cruise voyage in the Gulf of Thailand, the first since Star Cruises pulled out of the market in 2002.


The first cruise aboard the 1,000 passenger 'Ocean Dream' was from Laem Chabang to Samui Island and on to Sihanoukville in Cambodia for a four day, three night trip.

The Chinese company set up with Thailand’s Eastime Shipping to run the 1,000 passenger MV Ocean Dream, a 1972-built ship that was bought two years ago by the Hong Kong firm, rescuing it from a trip to the breakers.

According to a report in Thanonline news, all of the passengers on the new cruise venture will be Chinese tourists who have pre-paid for the trip.


The 20,000 gt MV Ocean Dream can accommodate up to 1,060 passengers in 420 cabins.
