Introduction to Tianjin International Cruise Home Port

Location: 170 km (106 miles) southeast of Beijing and 60 km (38 miles) east of Tianjin, it takes 2–3 hours to drive from Beijing to the terminal, subject to local traffic conditions.

Cruise ships: As the only international cruise terminal in North China, the port at present can house two large cruise ships at the same time. Cruise companies Costa Cruises and Caribbean use the port. It has hosted many luxury cruise ships, including Ocean Princess, Diamond Princess, Sydney Sun Princess, Queen Mary II, and Legends of the Seas.

NOT Xingang Port Passenger Terminal: Located on reclaimed land 26 km from Xingang Port Passenger Terminal (which now serves as a domestic cruise terminal), the new terminal can be hard to find even for local drivers. So passengers should ensure they arrive at Tianjin International Cruise Home Port, not Xingang Passenger Terminal.

Another advantage of our transfer service is that your requirements are double checked. ensuring you get where you want when you need to be there.
