Physical characteristics of the port

Built at the cost of 20.6 million dollars, the Cruise Terminal at Berth 12 offers a modern world-class infrastructure. Inaugurated in 2010, the first ship to berth there on June 4, 2010 was the Norwegian Spirit, with more than 2,300 passengers onboard.

Besides being able to welcome cruise ships of practically any size, the dock can also accomodate other types of ships year-round.
