Accidents in Asia’s Ports & Locations

For many cruisers, going to Asia is the trip of a lifetime. Several major cruise lines operate in Asia, including Oceania, Viking, Crystal Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean, and Holland America.

Whether you cruise across the Pacific Ocean or fly to Asia, Europe, or even South Africa to start your cruise, it is important to be aware of the risks involved. It is also important to know what to do in the event of an accident. Cruising presents risks for passengers and crewmembers alike, and when you are thousands of miles from home, it is critical that you are able to get the help you need when you need it.

There are numerous cruise ports across Japan. Whether you want to visit Tokyo, explore the history of Kyoto or Ishigaki, or see Mt. Fuji with your own eyes, you can do so on an Asian cruise. Other popular Japanese cruise ports include Aomori, Hakodate, Hiroshima, Kagoshima, Kobe, Kochi, Okinawa, and Sapporo.


Visiting China on a cruise is an unforgettable experience. Unfortunately, too often, cruises prove to be unforgettable for the wrong reasons. We represent passengers, crewmembers, and families following accidents on cruises to Dalian, Guangzhou, Haikou, Qingdao, Sanya, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Tianjin, and Xiamen.

The Kai Tak Cruise Terminal in Hong Kong welcomes visitors from the United States and around the world. Located just south of Shenzhen and east of Macao, it is a common stop on many Asian cruises departing from the U.S. and other countries.


The island nation of the Philippines has cruise ports in many locales that are only accessible by water. Along with the well-known port city of Manila, cities with ports in the Philippines include Bohol, Boracay, Cebu, Coron Busuanga Island, Hundred Islands, Puerto Princesa and Romblon Island.


Cruises visiting India stop at five major ports on the country’s coasts along the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. These ports are located in Chennai, Goa, Cochin, Mangalore and Mumbai.
