Three More APL Ships To Carry Passengers, Each Equipped With Two Double-Bedded Owners Cabins

APL New YorkAfter the news last week that four APL ships were now accepting passengers The Cruise People Ltd are pleased to announce three more, bringing the number of APL passenger-carrying container ships to seven. One of the three newly-added ships sails Transpacific while the other two carry passengers only locally within Europe.

Probably most interesting is the APL New York (above), which has opened up for passengers travelling between Los Angeles, Oakland, Tokyo and three Chinese ports, Qingdao, Shanghai and Ningbo, on a full round voyage of 42 days. A typical round voyage on this route costs €4,315 per person in double occupancy or €4,735 for sole occupancy, while the one-way trip from Oakland to Tokyo is 16 days, or €1,715 per person double and €1,875 for sole occupancy.

President Wilson was one of four Transpacific ocean liners operated by APLThis route harks back to the days of American President Lines, when the round trip was the same 42 days. Liners like the President Wilson (left) sailed from San Francisco to Honolulu, Yokohama, Hong Kong and Manila, with the return voyage calling at the same ports plus Kobe.

Oakland Hotel: For passengers boarding the APL New York in Oakland or indeed the APL Columbus, APL Danube or APL Phoenix bound to Asia and the US East Coast or the Hamburg-Süd ships bound for Europe or Australasia, we have a local hotel recommendation from Christopher Kyte, chairman of the Oakland-based  tour operating company Uncommon Journeys:

Waterfront Hotel a Joie De Vivre HotelThere is a wonderful hotel in Oakland, right on San Francisco Bay, called the Waterfront Hotel. not only is it nice, but there is a regular 25-minute ferry service to and from downtown San Francisco and the hotel has a free shuttle that will take folks to the nearby port of Oakland and their ship. And it is only three blocks from the Oakland Amtrak station. For any cargo ship passengers coming to Oakland, this would be the perfect choice.

Meanwhile, two more APL ships, the APL Charleston and APL Miami, offer a 15-night one-way voyage from Gioia Tauro in southern Italy to Tangier, Southampton, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Felixstowe, Dunkirk and Le Havre. Fares for this 15-night trip are €1,615 per person double and €1,765 single. These ships trade out to India and Pakistan but only accept passengers within Europe. Please apply to this office for fares and availability. Like the APL New York, these ships offer two Owners Cabins for passengers.
