The Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore continues to attract additional cruise ship calls as leading operators look to exploit the massive potential for cruising in Asia. Its important role was recognised in January 2017 when cruise operator Seabourn, part of Carnival Corp, named its newbuild cruise ship Seabourn Encore while alongside the facility.
Lionel Yeo, chief executive of the Singapore Tourism Board, said: “This event is another milestone in our partnership with Seabourn and Carnival Corp. It is also testament to the growing appeal of Southeast Asia as the destination of choice for discerning travellers. We look forward to welcoming more of Carnival’s ships to Singapore.”
Singapore’s other main cruise facility, Singapore Cruise Centre, is located at Harbourfront along with the terminals for fast ferry services to destinations in Indonesia, and is used by cruise lines including Star Cruises.
