Operations and commercial director Putut Sri Mulianto of Pelindo III said on Monday in Surabaya, East Java that the number were based on their records which however might change along the way.

 

 

The Benoa Port in Bali  ranked first with 75 arrivals which was followed by 17 arrivals at Lembar Port in West Nusa Tenggars along with 16 arrivals at Tanjung Emas Port, Central Java.

 

 

Security was a major concern among the ship operators, it was reported that out of 149 planned arrivals in 2018, 138 cruise ships called at its ports across the country.

 

 

Due to the bombings in Surabaya and Sidoarjo there was a decline along with the natural disaster that struck West Nusa Tenggara.

The waterways at Benoa Port has been deepened from the previous low water spring of 11 meters to 13 meters.

 

 

There will be further improvements in passenger terminal facilities and capacities.

 

 

Putt went on saying that large vessels of more than 250 meters could only dock outside the port before. With the revitalization it can be docked at the berths. This will certainly add interest in cruise ship [tourism], as safety and comfort is guaranteed.
