Landmark
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.

  • Good selection of shops mainly for the office crowd. Convenient as it's linked to Raffles Place MRT station. It's usually bustling during lunchtime peak hours.
  • Nice sea Port terminal, unfortunately can only accommodate two ships at one time. Less crowded than the harbor front terminal, many washroom, departure is located at the upper level. Best to arrive early to avoid the long lineup to get drop off.
  • The terminal has very little facilities when compared to brilliantly design airport. Only Wifi is available. No TV or Newspaper or charging point or food court or any other facilities to kill your boredom if you have arrived early or waiting in long que.
  • My 1st time to Marina Cruise Center. The center was really huge compare to Harbor Front Cruise Center. The center can only house 2 cruises which I think is too small for the size. Should hold more cruises instead. Most of the facilities there were still new and their car park was really convenience for both drop-off and alright. Did not visit the shop around there cause was too excited to go up the New Dream Cruises. Overall the feeling at the cruise center was good. The wait at the custom was not very long.
  • Place is well maintained. All the procedures were fast and immigration was fast. It is designed very well.
