You'll be able to see the largest cruise ships come into berth when Singapore’s Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore (MBCCS) opens its doors in the middle of 2012. Aiming to establish the country as the cruise hub of Asia, this almost 30,000 square metre terminal cost $500 million to build and offers impressive views of the downtown Singapore skyline. Serene views of the straits of Singapore can be seen if you stroll down the planned waterfront promenade and park and, if you’re a cruise passenger coming into Singapore, you’ll have a prime spot to see the innovative design of the terminal itself. Its angular form and rooftop “waves” will appear as an imaginative mosaic of shapes and patterns that constantly change as your ship comes into berth.
Among the grandest of ongoing construction projects, Singapore’s new Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore (MBCCS) is set to offer sights that will take your breath away.
Strategically located in the city’s new lifestyle and financial hub of Marina Bay, alongside attractions such as the Singapore Flyer and Marina Barrage, this $500 million terminal looks set to propel Singapore into the major maritime league when it opens in the second half of 2012.
Once the terminal is fully operational in 2015, you'll be able to take great photographs of the Oasis-class cruise liners coming into berth. Built at a cost of S$1.55 billion, and 360 metres long, these are the largest passenger ships in the world.
Walking around the grounds of the terminal, you’ll be able to see impressive views of the downtown Singapore skyline, enjoy a stroll along the waterfront promenade and park, and take in views of the straits of Singapore.

Hoping to attract an estimated 1.6 million passengers, the 28,000-square-metre terminal — equivalent to about three football fields — is one of the biggest in Asia. It boasts superior facilities and its two-berth facility doubles Singapore’s current cruise capacity of 6,800 passengers at any one time.
