Developing Cruise Ship Situation in Hong Kong
« on: August 13, 2019, 09:32:08 AM »
"Over the weekend, police in Hong Kong fired tear gas and non-lethal ammunition at protesters at two of the city's train stations, and Hong Kong International Airport canceled all departures today as more than 5,000 protesters gathered in the airport's public areas.

These events follow nearly five months of protests in Hong Kong over the suspected revocation of freedoms of Hong Kong citizens by the Chinese government. 

While the prime fall/winter Hong Kong cruise season is still months away, several vessels are scheduled to call on the city in the next few weeks, including Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas (August 14, 21 and 25); Princess Cruises' Majestic Princess (August 31); and Viking Cruises' Viking Orion (September 19 through 21).
