Marina Bay Cruise Center Singapore, Singapore
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
The Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore is a new cruise terminal in Singapore which is located at Marina South next to the Marina South Pier. The S$500 million terminal began constructing in October 2009 and completed on May 22, 2012. It received its first ship, the Voyager of the Seas, on 26 May 2012. The official opening ceremony of MBCCS was on October 22, 2012.The terminal is operated by SATS-Creuers Cruise Services. This addition and the Singapore Cruise Centre at HarbourFront are expected to grow the leisure cruise sector in Singapore. Second Minister for Trade and Industry S Iswaran said that cruise passenger numbers are expected to hit 1.5 million in three to five years. Passenger numbers reached close to one million in 2011. When it's fully operational, it is expected to generate some 3,000 jobs in the tourism sector.HistoryThe impetus for construction came from difficulties many cruise operators had with the current Singapore Cruise Centre which is in a narrow channel with a dead end. The geographical limitations of the site impose height and berth limits on the cruise operators. Whereas, the new location at Marina South has deep waters, a large turning basin, and no height restrictions, which will enable it to accommodate the largest cruise ships being built now.On March 18, 2009, the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB) revealed the cruise terminal's design.Plan to visit Marina Bay Cruise Center Singapore during your Singapore vacation using our convenient Singapore itinerary builder.

A great Cruise Terminal with free wi-fi and currency exchange. You can take a taxi to downtown for 10-15 USD (2016) or walk 20 min and take the very efficient and clean subway.
Decent port will two berths capable of handling most cruise ships. Not much amenities at the centre itself but 5mins drive to Marina Centre to fill your shopping needs. 5-10 mins walk to Marina South Pier MRT station.
A reasonable sized cruise centre that can accommodate large size international cruise ships. It has ample car park lots. It is quite near to a MRT station and is accessible by taxi.
Security staff very rude. Esp supervisor who thinks the sun shines out of his arse. Not good directional signs when crowded.
The terminal building is big, unfortunately, the design for the arrival hall area is too small, the 2 passenger lifts is too small. No toilet facilities at the coach bay .Just imagine 2 large curise liner berth at the same time with approx. 6 thousand passengers embarking....with a small arrival hall n 2 small lifts...???
