Cruise Asia by Destination Asia employs a systematic approach to managing safety, including the necessary organizational structures, accountabilities, policies and procedures as necessary for each country of operation. Our safety management system is woven into the fabric of every operation, becoming an integral part of the way we complete each task, therefore reducing risk to a level that is as low as is reasonably practicable.
With over 22 international cruise lines serving Asia, operating a collective 43 ships (and growing), and combining year-round and seasonal departures – there has never been more emphasis or demand for new and capable ports of call. Cruise Asia by Destination Asia is at the forefront of this endeavor, and on behalf of our cruise line clients, we have prepared multiple port studies; including pier suitability and ISPS code compliance, as well as customs and immigration preparedness.
As pioneers in the Asian cruise industry, Cruise Asia by Destination Asia has worked with and advised major international cruise lines and expedition vessels since the very first ships were being deployed. Owing to our internal programs and career development plans, many of our team have been with the company since opening its doors, growing with us and helping to maintain a strong position even in times of adversity. We understand how seasons, weather patterns, tides, and cabotage laws can unfavorably affect itinerary development.
Our services are not limited to shore excursions and turnarounds. Through local partnerships we work closely with ships’ agents to facilitate efficient
communications and seamless transition from sea to pier and vice versa. Our team of visa, immigration and customs liaison personnel provide the same
exacting standards to your onboard team to ensure everything runs smoothly and efficiently behind the scenes, even before the very first guest has disembarked.
