Well the end of the crisis is now very much upon us and normal procedure seems to not only have been resumed, but almost slighlt improved upon. On May 19th the very first Mt Kumgang Cruise from Rason began, using the new Singaporean ship The Royale Star. The initial cruise, or maiden voyage was run specifically for Chinese, Korean-Chinese, and nationals of the DPRK and left on May 19th, with the vessel that has a capacity for 800 paying guests, took a fairly full ship for the maiden leg.
YPT always being up for new DPRK adventures and routes are anxiously awaiting news on if foreigners will be allowed on the next cruise which will ideally be leaving at the end of June. Should this happen, we will certainly be selling places..
