He told Bisnis Bali that in March 2014 a 297-meter cruise ship is expected to berth at Benoa.

Sodikin revealed that Pelindo III is now working with cruise ship associations in Australia and Miami (Florida), and lobbying cruise ship operators worldwide to include Bali and Benoa in their itineraries.

Thus far in 2013, Benoa has been visited by 42 cruise ships. In 2014 47 ships are currently schedule to visit.

In addition, the number of yachts visiting Bali continues to grow, with most cruising from Thailand and Singapore to Bali.

The cruise facilities available at Benoa are divided into three sections:

  • The public dock located in the southern portion of Benoa with a length of 206 meters and width of 15 meters. The adjacent ship’s basin in 4-6 meters in depth.
  • The tourist dock located in the eastern portion of Benoa with a length of 290 meters and a width of 20 meters. The adjacent ship’s basin is 8 meters in depth.
