Sail Into Bali Cruise Port
Bali Cruise Port is the port of Benoa. This is a relatively new port and you will more than likely be greeted by Balinese dancers. Once you get to Benoa you will get a glimpse of the beauty of this paradisiacal island. You will be mesmerized by the beautiful hills of rice paddies and the huge dormant tropical volcanoes in the distance. The cruise terminal which is provided for those who want to stay close to the ship provides a cocktail bar and a coffee shop with seats that has a great view out to sea. The town centre Denpasar is 12 km away and Ubud, Bali’s cultural centre, only 45 mins away. There are many demonstrations of Balinese art and culture in the terminal also, which you can visit as part of an onshore excursion. Many cruise companies such as P&O, Royal Caribbean and Princess Cruises offer exciting excursions and entertainment passengers can take advantage of.
