Royal Caribbean And Penang Port To Work With Each Other In Joint Venture

A joint venture between Malaysian Penang Port Sdn Bhd (PPSB) and Royal Caribbean has been announced in  a project to upgrade and enhance the cruise facilities at  Swettenham Pier Cruise Terminal (SPCT) in Georgetown, Penang whereby larger cruise ships will be able to berth.

According to Cruise Industry News, the joint venture will be a 60/40 split in favour of Penang Port Sdn Bhd.

Planned upgrades and enhancements include the lengthening of the  north and south inner berths from 400m to 688m which will mean two larger cruise ships can berth at one time at the pier.

Additional improvements will see a $35m project on improving accessibility for elderly and disabled passengers to get from terminal to ship and vice versa. New spaces for shore excursion buses which is hoped will improve the traffic fow around the Swettenham Pier Cruise Terminal will also be added.
