Tourists now have the chance to cross the Taiwan Strait on a cruise ship, with the launch of the latest tourism project in Fujian. The four-day voyage, initiated by the Fujian Tourism Bureau, is the bureau's latest cross-Straits tourism project.


Super Star Gemini, a 50,764-ton passenger cruise vessel of Star Cruises, started its first trip from Xiamen to Taiwan on Friday. The trip was taking 1,200 tourists from Xiamen to Taiwan's Penghu County and Kaohsiung City.


It offers a chance to appreciate the scenery at sea, with many recreational facilities such as swimming pools, libraries, cafes and casinos. A ticket costs 2,000 yuan ($327) to 5,000 yuan ($820).
