Jeju Province started a project to allow simultaneous cruise ship dockings at its port in January of this year. The plan was put into effect earlier this month, on July 2nd, allowing the simultaneous dockings.
As well as 9 sets of stairs for boarding and disembarking and additional fences, 21 sets of bumpers were installed at the port.
As a result, the 47,000 ton cruise ship 'HENNA' successfully docked in an extra berth, alongside which the concurrent docking of another large ship would have been possible.
In addition, these port renovations are contributing to the rising number of cruise tourists.
With the addition of this spare berth, Jeju is expecting to attract 370,000 cruise tourists this year.
