International Cruise Terminal

The Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore (also known as the International Cruise Terminal and abbreviated as "MBCCS") 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.
