International Cruise Terminal
Description: Scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2012, the Singapore International Cruise Terminal (ICT) at Marina South is heralded to be a massive addition to Singapore’s vibrant waterfront facilities. It commands a prominent location with the downtown Singapore skyline as its backdrop. Its interior has a clear and functional layout to ensure smooth and seamless passenger service whilst the exterior adopts a nautical theme with the motif of waves breaking into shore.
The new facility will have two berths served by a common terminal building and will be able to accommodate the largest ships both currently in service. At least three ocean liners will be dropping anchor here when the terminal is completed, bringing with them thousands of passengers in and out of Singapore. The two new berths will complement the current two berths at the Singapore Cruise Centre at Harbourfront. Both terminals are only a 10- to 15-minute drive from each other.
Well served by a network of roads and a future link to the underground rail transport system, cruise passengers at the new terminal can look forward to easy access and seamless connection to other parts of Singapore, including the Changi International Airport which is a 20-minute drive away. The development can currently be reached by SBS Transit bus service 402 from the Marina Bay MRT Station, however a new MRT station is planned to be built by 2014 at the terminal as an extension of theNorth South Line. The station's working name is Marina Pier MRT Station.
It will also be easily accessible to Marina Bay, Singapore's new downtown and financial services hub, and its necklace of attractions which include the Singapore Flyer, the circuit for the inaugural 2008 FORMULA 1™ Singtel Singapore Grand Prix and the Marina Bay Sands integrated resort.
Singapore Marina South International Cruise Terminal's superior terminal facilities will complement Singapore's prime location between major international maritime routes and excellent air connectivity to establish Singapore as the cruise hub of Asia.
