Taking Leave of Tanah Ampo’s Shores

(1/5/2014)

A French-flag cruise ship MV Le Soleal refused to disembark its passengers at the Tanah Ampo Cruise Port prepared by the regency of Karangasem on Friday, January 3, 2013.

Dissatisfied with the conditions at Tanah Ampo, the Captain of the ship carrying 156 tourists shifted the vessel to drop anchor at the Port of Amuk in order to ferry passengers to the passenger pier at Padang Bai.

Despite the less-than-ideal condition of the passenger pier at Padang Bai, cruise ships still find the water conditions and the disembarkation process far superior to those available at nearby Tanah Ampo.

A floating pontoon at Tanah Ampo meant to receive tenders from the cruise ship could not be used due to a damaged gangway connection the pontoon to the main pier. The gangway and pontoon, plagued by poor engineeing, has been built and destroyed by waves several times.

The Tanah Ampo facility that as received substantial government funding has yet to attract a following of cruise ship client due to unfavorable sea conditions and a number of shortcoming in the pier’s construction that make it unsuitable and unsafe for cruise passengers’ use.

The head of the Transportation Service Department in Karangasem, Komang Daging, confirmed to Bali Post that there are no scheduled visits by cruise ships to Tanah Ampo in 2014 due to no firm plans to repair the passenger pontoon gangway.
