The largest of the berths can be an all-weather stop for the world’s largest 227,000-ton cruise ships and the two smaller ones can accommodate smaller vessels.
The customs clearance capacity of the Qingdao cruise home port passenger terminal can reach 3,000 to 4,000 persons per hour. The passenger terminal's main function is customs inspections but it also offers business services such as duty-free shops.
