The IPT is the ninth largest cruise homeport in the world, including Costa Crociere (belonging to Carnival Corporation & plc), as well as ships from Royal Caribbean International and Star Cruises.


Operating with just two berths, in 2010, some 1 million cruise passengers arrived or departed on 642 vessels that belong to 34 cruise lines. These cruise lines include many well known cruise operators namely Cunard Line, Royal Caribbean International, Star Cruises, Costa Crociere, Princess Cruise Line, Crystal Cruises, Silversea Cruises, Regent Seven Sea Cruises, Holland America Line, P&O Cruises and Seabourn Cruise Line.


This multiple award-winning cruise terminal completed in 1991. There are 2 berths for international passenger cruise ships: CC01- 310m with depth alongside 12m and CC02 – 270m with depth alongside 11m.


Since 1998 more than S$50 million has been invested to upgrade and improve the HarbourFront Passenger Terminal facilities, catering for increase demand as well as growth in the cruise industry.


In 1998, the HarbourFront Passenger Terminal(HFPT) was refurbished to increase the capacity of the terminal to handle larger and longer ships, renovating the interior and dredging two spots on the Cruise Bay to create a larger turning circle for mega cruise ships.


In 2005 the terminal was improved for better security equipment and processes to gain compliance with the international ISPS code.


In 2009 the terminal was renovated to improve passenger circulation and boost the processing space. At this time, a new CIP/VIP Lounge was also incorporated.


And in 2011, a Singapore Cruise Centre is making a significant investment of S$14million to rejuvenate the entire terminal, adding 25% more space in order to better the experience for passengers and visitors. The renovation will improve circulation, add ambience and provide more spacious areas for immigration and baggage clearance.


At the IPT, passengers and visitors alike may enjoy a suite of amenities which includes food and beverage options, left luggage services, CIP Lounge services and free Wi-Fi connections. We also provide services for ship crews such as internet cafe and convenience shop within resticted area.
