The long wait for full-blast operations of the first international cruise ship terminal in Luzon will soon be over.
The project is already 50 percent complete despite the restrictions being implemented by the IATF in Bicol due to rising Covid-19 cases.
Department of Public Works and Highways-Bicol said the civil works of the cruise ship terminal located between the panoramic Albay Gulf and the majestic Mayon Volcano are not hampered by quarantine protocols in the region.
It said, “The project…is expected to become operational on September 24…and the passengers will surely enjoy a full view of the majestic Mount Mayon when ships dock at the Albay Gulf.”
Legazpi City Mayor Noel Rosal said the terminal is a welcome addition to the infrastructure development that will uplift the tourism industry in the area by boosting arrivals from all over the world.
Rosal said the project includes a seaport that can accommodate a 300-meter long cruise ship.
