We just returned to Singapore by Mariner Of The Seas through the New Kai Tak Cruise Terminal.
Armed with a picture of the Cruise Terminal, we were rejected by 3 taxis to transport us to the cruise terminal. We managed with the help of the 4th taxi. From Nathan Road (Holiday Inn) the cost was HK$92 for 4 passengers & 3 medium-size bags.
A total of 1,500 passengers were Hong Kong residents who joined the cruise and that made up about 40%. Cruise liners do not provide coach transfers. The authorities should consider providing transport connection for the tourists as well as the locals. One way in doing that could be to upgrade Mini Bus #86 from Kowloon Bay MTR Station to a bigger bus similar to the airport bus.
Just hoping that this suggestion helps.
