An excerpt from Asia Times:
"Shanghai will soon be competing with its archrivals Hong Kong and Singapore for the title of Asia’s largest cruise hub with the upcoming deployment of the 172,000-ton MSC Bellissima. The mammoth ship will be the largest of its kind in Asia when it casts off from the city’s Wusongkou cruise terminal next spring.
The city’s Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal, which can service three 100,000-ton ships, is already one of the larges across Asia. A total of 2,255 cruise ships have berthed there since its opening, bringing in 13.5 million travelers from across the world.
Further expansion has added two extra concourses with a gross floor area of 55,000 square meters and a 620-meter new bridge, as well as a sprawling 82,000-square-meter riverside berth to further boost Wusongkou’s capacity to six million passengers a year, more than double the number in 2018. "
