Demonstrating a rapid return on the recent investment of improving Bali’s Benoa to permit large ship visits, reports that six large cruise ships are scheduled to undertake turn-around voyages in Bali this year.

Rizki Handayani, the Director for Tourism Development from the Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy, said: “This year the port of Benoa will welcome 6 luxury cruise ships. In the port of Benoa, cruise ships of ‘jumbo’ proportions will do turn-arounds by embarking and disembarking passengers.”

The ships coming to call include Seven Seas Voyager carrying some 700 tourists. That ships is scheduled to berth on December 19, 2012. There is also a visit expected by the Seabourn Odyssey carrying 450 passengers and the Orion with 400 passengers,

The Orion is scheduled to pay four visits to Bali on August 24, October 20 and 22, and November 1, 2012.

The recent dredging of Benoa now permits visits by larger ships to Bali’s most southernmost port, effectively eclipsing the cruise port ambitions of the problem-ridden Tanah Ampo International Cruise Terminal in East Bali.

Rizki reported that total cruise ship visits to Indonesia for all of 2012 will total 200 calls carrying an estimated 118,800 foreign passengers.
