How many Cruise Ports in Shanghai?

Shanghai Cruise Port has three cruise terminals listed below:

1. Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal

Wusongkou International Cruise Terminal in the Baoshan District of Shanghai is located at the confluence of the Yangtze, Huangpu and Yunzaobang rivers.

Wusongkou is the largest specialized cruise terminal in Shanghai. It has two big berths for cruise ships, built to accommodate one 100,000 ton and one 200,000 ton super-sized cruise ship respectively, and facilitating an annual passenger throughput of 608,000 people.

Over the years, the comprehensive land and water transportation system, as well as the entertainment facilities at this terminal have transformed it into one of the most popular stopping-off points, where tourists can enjoy the splendid scenery of the estuary.

Wusongkou Port transportations by Taxi Rides:

To / From Distances Times Approximate Fares
Shanghai city center: 25km 40 minutes 85 yuan

2. Shanghai Port International Cruise Terminal

It’s hard to beat the Shanghai Port International Cruise Terminal for convenience. It is located in the Hongkou District, just near the downtown area.

Shanghai Port is the largest local cruise port terminal, accommodating an annual passenger flow of one million people and handling up to three large passenger liners at the same time. Ships larger than 87,000 tons, however, are forbidden to berth at this port, due to height restrictions from the bridge spanning the Huangpu River.

Shanghai city center: 5km 15 minutes 20 yuan
Shanghai Pudong Airport 56km 65 minutes 200 yuan
Shanghai Hongqiao Airport 19km 35 minutes 70 yuan
Shanghai Hongqiao Railway 24km 40 minutes 80 yuan
Shanghai Railway Station 6km 20 minutes 25 yuan

3. Waigaoqiao International Cruise Terminal

Located at Waigaoqiao in the Pudong New Area, Waigaoqiao International Cruise Terminal has the capability of berthing the world's largest cruise ship and handling up to four cruise ships simultaneously.

Though it is not as close as Shanghai Port to downtown Shanghai, its proximity to the ocean helps travelers save time on the ship itself.

Besides, since the low bridge spanning the Huangpu River prevents ships larger than 87,000 tons from berthing at Shanghai Port, larger ships have to moor at one of the other two ports, namely, Waigaoqiao and Wusongkou.

Shanghai city center: 25km 50 minutes 96 yuan

Shanghai Hongqiao Airport 40km 50 minutes 140 yuan
Shanghai Hongqiao Railway 45km 50 minutes 160 yuan
