Hong Kong was great and very easy to get around. we took the free transport station picked up train to centre. we had a tight itinery so goy hop on bus ticket. This is not easy to find but suggest easiest to go to pier 7 where lots of personnel will sell you tickets. using this you get ferry and opportunity to explore both islands over three routes red blue and green.

I strongly advise not to get a taxi at ocean terminal. We & hundreds of others waited 4 hours for a taxi, 1 came every 10 to 15 minutes. Will have an organised transfer next time. Be careful with the taxis. One of our party was charged the equivalent of $100 aud to go less than 1k. We paid about $10aud ($60hkd). Make sure you take a photo of the metre reading as they turn it off & you have no proof in case they try to rip you off. The hop on hop off bus is recommended for those not familiar with hk.

Actually Hong Kong was our second stop. Amazing amount of building. Easy to navigate the metro. Don't miss Tea at the Peninsula Hotel. Fun markets. Easy to explore without a ship's excursion.

Amazing city. Take a ferry over to Lamma Island from Central for less than £2 or Happy Valley Racecourse Wednesday nights is incredible. If you miss a wednesday, book in advance a table at Shatin racecourse, it includes food and drink and is great fun. Again, try and upgrade your room to Club lounge, by emailing in advance, HK is so expensive the free breakfast, drinks and snacks make it very worthwhile and you usually benefit from late check out too.

Having been to HK before we planned well before we sailed. The downside was that we could have returned to the ship on the first night, had dinner aboard and enjoyed the fireworks from the deck (or our balcony!). Unfortunately with no information from Celebrity we made other arrangements and this was an additional cost to us, not as comfortable as being back on board and so very disappointing. Otherwise HK is a great stop. Read Less

We disembarked here and explored independently Kowloon, and Hong Kong Island. A highlight was the Museum of Hong Kong and taking a local bus to Stanley.

Ship provided a shuttle to the metro system thereafter we did our own thing. Bumped into friends off the ship who were on a ship tour several times at key sites. Lots of walking. Could have done with 48hrs really.

Here some of our fellow cruisers disembarked. For us, it’s a long day in port since we would be back on board for the next leg of our SE Asia cruise. Among all the ports we visited on this cruise, I would say Hong Kong is the most prepared for cruise ships: modern, clean, and efficient. There is a large park on the roof of the cruise terminal building, with a nice view of the Hong Kong skyline. Lots of transportation options to choose from. I don’t know about other cruise lines, but one thing HAL told us about this port needs to be clarified here. In their onboard talks about Hong Kong, one thing they tried very hard to do is to persuade people to buy the ship’s transfers. They showed us a picture of a couple hundred people at the taxi stand with no taxi in sight. They claimed that taxi drivers don’t like to go into the cruise terminal and so the only other option is their shuttles to the airport or to the airport express station in town. Well, they may be right about fewer taxi drivers wanting to come into the terminal, but they also conveniently omitted an option that all local people know about, which is also on the website of the Kai Tak cruise terminal – a free shuttle that takes you to two of the closest MTR (subway) stations. Even after I asked, they tried to tell me that the free shuttles do not allow you to take your luggage. That was a blatant lie. The driver does not help you load your bags onto the bus, but you can definitely take them with you. Lots of people have done that. I have done that. I understand that this may not be for everybody, but it is a viable option that should not be omitted in any port talk. It does require a bit of planning and research, and you must have some local currency with you, and you must be able to handle your luggage by yourselves, but it’s totally doable and can save you significant amount of money, depending on where you want to go and how many are in your party. Once you get to an MTR station, you have the options of using public transportation or taxi. Hong Kong has many, many interesting places reachable using the MTR, which is fast, clean and efficient.
