When I visited Hong Kong in 2008 I was hoping to see at least one cruise ship because it is a very popular destination. The cruise ship terminal is at the Kowloon waterfront, with the ferry terminal right next to it. I recall that shortly after we had checked into our hotel we headed towards Admiralty on the MTR, but once we got there I branched off and headed for the ferry terminal because I really wanted to ride a ferry and hopefully see a ship or two or three.
And I hit the jackpot
A brief 10 second glimpse was all I had of her. To this day I always regret not investigating that area closer, it was not far from where we had been either, but that was just how things worked out.
When we revisited Hong Kong in 2010 I was hoping to be as lucky again. But much to my disgust there were no callers during the week we were there. The ships would all be calling in the next week instead.
The Macau Success was built as Golden Odyssey, while Neptune was built as Kareliya.
a bit of rooting around snagged me a better image of Neptune (By pete (Neptune at Hong Kong) [CC BY 2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons)
And that is how things go, Hindsight is always so much better.
That concluded my cruise ship viewing in Hong Kong. Hong Kong as a destination is excellent but the air quality can make for poor photography at times. And of course, who knows what is hiding just around the buildings, or in the container berth?
