Singapore’s New Cruise Berth Ready to Woo European Ships

Singapore opened its second cruise terminal as operators including Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. seek to tap the region’s growing appetite for travel and make up for slowing demand in Europe.

SATS-Creuers Services Pte, which has a 10-year contract to run the only Asian terminal catering to the world’s biggest class of cruise ships, expects 100,000 passengers in its first year, Chief Executive Officer Melvin Vu said. The center will receive eight vessels by August, including Royal Caribbean’s 15-deck Voyager of the Seas.
