Luxury Cruise Service Begins at Yonghoman Bay

The City of Busan celebrated the launching of the Yonghoman Cruise with a ceremony at Yonghoman Cruise Port on November 10, 2014, at 11 am with about 200 participants including Busan Mayor Suh Byeong-soo, Chairman of Busan Metropolitan Council and members of the Busan National Assembly.

To promote the Yonghoman Bay area as a new marine tourism attraction, the city designated Samjoo Co.,Ltd. as a cruise operator last November. Samjoo has built three 100-seat capacity luxury cruise ships and began operations this month. Yonghoman Port serves as the base of operations for the cruise tourism business.

The regular operation of three cruise ships, five times daily with a variety of short and long distance courses, along the coastlines of Busan is expected to provide unique and various things to see and enjoy.

The Yonghoman Bay area will be promoted as a new marine tourism attraction and be used to revitalize local tourism  and aid in marketing the city to domestic and foreign tourists alike.

The Yonghoman cruise ship named Maidas720 is a steam-and-sail-driven luxury ship, and was built using domestic techniques.

The 92-seat large scale cruise ship (72 feet high, B1 – 2F) has various facilities including a stage, gallery, mini bar, multimedia facility and DJ BOX.

The cruise ships operate three times during the day and twice during the evening.



The two cruise itineraries include:
