The Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, projects that Bali will soon become an international cruise center.

Quoted by the National News Agency Antara, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, said in Bali on Thursday, April 13, 2017: “The uniqueness and beauty of Bali is the major attraction for tourists to visit. At this time, the desire to visit while on board a cruise ship is developing quickly, making now the time to make Bali a center for international cruise tourism.”

Speaking at a seminar on “Policy and Strategy for Cruise Tourism” held on board P&O’s Pacific Eden in Benoa Harbor in Bali, Luhut said efforts to make Bali a cruise center still confront a number of problems that must still be addressed.

Among these problems are the high cost of berthing at Benoa Harbor, the high cost of fuel, the availability of potable water, and trash disposal.

Luhut said that a joint effort by both the private and public sector is needed to address these problems, especially if Bali is to be ready to host a meeting of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Annual Meeting in 2018.

Also speaking at the seminar on board the Pacific Eden was the President of Carnival Pacific Mike Drake who confirmed that the cruise market is expanding rapidly expressed the hope that Bali would take the necessary steps to create a world class cruise ship port at Benoa and address the problems outlined by the Minister.

The visit of the Pacific Eden marked the first time that the ship carrying a complement of 1,500 tourists was able to berth alongside the pier in Benoa. On past visits, the ship has had to drop anchor outside the port and ferry passengers between the ship and port on tenders.
