"The development in just five or six years in China has been incredible. Growth rate from the China market is 50 to 100 percent per year. We've never seen anything like this before, not even in the US. So the trend is fantastic," said Adam Goldstein, president and COO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

Royal Caribbean International said last week that the Quantum Global Odyssey, a 53-night epic journey, departing May 2, 2015, from the New York-metropolitan area will visit its new home in Shanghai (Baoshan), China.

China is now the second-largest market in terms of customers. By revenue, it ranks No 3, closely behind the UK, Goldstein said. "That's because we organize shorter cruises here, but clearly the growth rate in China is so significant. And I believe in a few years China will become our second market in every way."
