Holidaymakers stage cruise ship protest
(02-06 11:03)

Hundreds of passengers are staging a protest on board a cruise ship docked in Tsim Sha Tsui, refusing to disembark until they receive compensation for a change to their scheduled holiday itinerary.
The holidaymakers say the Miramar Travel ship was supposed to visit Ha Long Bay in Vietnam but staff told them a sunken ship meant they were unable to dock there.
The cruise ship arrived in Hong Kong at around 6am and the protestors are still refusing to go ashore.
DAB legislator, Ann Chiang Lai-wan, who is among the passengers, has demanded an explanation from the travel company. --RTHK
