The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) is currently showcasing its new cruise terminal design for the first time at the Seatrade Cruise Shipping Convention 2009 in Miami, USA being held from 17 to 19 March 2009.

 Last year Singapore confirmed it would build a new International Cruise Terminal at Marina South and double its current cruise handling capacity.

Bermello, Ajamil & Partners, Inc. (BA) and RSP Architects Planners & Engineers (Pte) Ltd, were appointed in May 2008 to design the cruise terminal.

“The new cruise terminal’s nautical theme was chosen as a natural complement to the terminal’s function and setting. We believe that the terminal’s rooftop depicting a modern interpretation of low rolling waves will provide for a very welcoming sight to passengers as their cruise ship sails into Singapore,” said Mr Chew Tiong Heng, STB’s Director for Destination Marketing & Cruise, who elaborated that the International Cruise Terminal will add to a distinctive Singapore skyline set to feature architectural gems such as the Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay and the Singapore Flyer.

Beyond its exterior design, the International Cruise Terminal’s interior will be characterized by a clean and simple layout to ensure a smooth and seamless passenger experience. Designed to accommodate the world’s largest ships, the terminal includes a spacious arrival and departure hall as well as a large ground transportation area to allow for efficient passenger movement.

“The International Cruise Terminal is a key infrastructural project that is vital to help Singapore capitalise on the global and Asian market growth of the cruise industry. Even amidst the current economic climate, the STB is committed to delivering this key infrastructure by the end of 2011 to help position Singapore as a regional cruise hub,” Mr Chew added.

With the design finalised, the next stage will be to commence construction with groundbreaking expected to take place in the next quarter.
