PENANG (Jan 3): Penang property developer Ewein Bhd has rewarded more than 1,000 purchasers of its latest project City of Dreams with a 4-day 3-night cruise.
The cruise trip, from Penang, covering Port Klang and Phuket, was launched by Penang state executive councilor for Tourism Development, Heritage, Culture and Arts, Yeoh Soon Hin.
In his welcome speech, Yeoh commended Ewein for organising the customer appreciation trip, saying it was a creative way of promoting Penang tourism while contributing to its economy.
“The state government is working hard to improve the state’s infrastructure including plans to redevelop the cruise terminal. We hope that more in the private sector can organise similar tours,” Yeoh added.
In September last year, the Penang government announced the upgrading plans for the Swettenham Pier Cruise Terminal. The RM155 million project is a joint venture between Penang Port and Royal Caribbean Cruises.
Yeoh said the project will take a year to complete. It involves the expansion of an existing berth to 660m from the current 400m to enable the terminal to accommodate two of Royal Caribbean Cruise’s new mega cruise vessels with a capacity of nearly 5,000 passengers in total.
