The popularity and supremacy of Bali’s southernmost port of Benoa was further cemented by the fact that 43 international cruise ships called on the port during 2013. The general manager of Pelindo III, Ali Sodikin, confirmed this tally for Benoa on Thursday, December 26, 2013 in comments made to Bisnis Bali.

Sodikin said the MV Voyager from Regent Seven Seas Cruise Lines us the last ship to call on Benoa in 2013. The ship spent two days over Christmas at Benoa carrying a complement of crew and passengers exceeding 2,000 people.

During the ship’s visit, officials from the port were invited on board to tour the vessel.

The Port of Benoa is reaping rewards for many improvements undertaken in the ship’s basin and supporting port facilities as ships abandon the Port of Padang Bai and the fundamentally flawed nearby port facility established at Tanah Ampo in favor of Benoa.

Port officials confirm further improvements are planned in the Benoa Port during 2014, augmenting its attractiveness to visiting cruise ships. Among the upgrades planned are repairs on the southernmost pier and the creation of a domestic passenger terminal, also in the south.

Adding to Benoa’s popularity as a passenger cruise port is its close proximity to major tourism attractions, hotels and restaurants.
