"If China's ban persists into the busier summer months it could both overwhelm the port capacity in Japan and reduce demand for cruises in China because of the lack of destination variety."

"Global cruise giants Carnival Corp. and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. will cancel South Korean port visits from their China-based cruises after Seoul deployed a U.S.missile defense system, raising tensions between the two countries.

In a post on its Chinese website, Royal Caribbean said it would remove visits to popular South Korea sites due to “recent developments regarding the situation in South Korea.”

Carnival’s Costa Cruises said it was working with tour operator partners to adjust its offering for Chinese clients.

“Costa Cruises will remove calls to South Korean ports for our upcoming cruises home ported out of China, replacing them with cruising at sea or calls to destinations in Japan,” it said in a statement."

"A parking nightmare in Sydney harbor left the giant cruise liner Radiance of the Seas unable to dock because the single berth big enough to take her was already occupied.

With a tight schedule to meet, the cruise organizers were forced to pay half a million dollars early last month to hire a flotilla of small vessels to ferry 2,500 passengers ashore, and bring back more waiting to embark for the next voyage.

"We have not done something like this ever anywhere else in the world," says Adam Goldstein, president and COO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

"It was completely foreseeable going back almost a decade that Sydney didn't have the infrastructure ultimately to support the ongoing growth in business," he adds. "Now, actually, we've reached the point where the constraint is completely real."

"Sydney's current airport at Kingsford Smith has also run out of room for expansion to meet growing passenger traffic, yet proposals for a second airport for the city have become one of Australia's longest-running bad jokes."
