City questions need for a dedicated Cape Town cruise terminal

City questions need for a dedicated Cape Town cruise terminal

Plans to build a dedicated cruise terminal in Cape Town may be off after a city study raised concerns about the project's financial viability.

According to an IOL Travel report, the findings of a study by Cape Town's tourism directorate were at odds with plans announced last year by Transnet National Ports Authority, which solicited bids for the development of a modern, dedicated cruise facility.

IOL Travel said the city's study found Cape Town attracts just a sliver of the global cruise business and a dedicated terminal would likely be unused for a good part of the year.
