Sonowal inaugurates Vizag International Cruise Terminal

Union Minister for Ports, Shipping and Waterways Sarbananda Sonowal inaugurated projects worth INR 333.56 crore in Visakhapatnam.

The Vizag International Cruise Terminal is among the three projects that have been launched. It is developed by the Visakhapatnam Port with an investment of INR 96.05 crore, while 50 per cent of the investment was funded by the Tourism Ministry.

This VICT can handle cruise ships that have up to 2,000 passengers on board. Sonowal said, “This terminal would position Visakhapatnam as a prominent cruise tourism destination. The diverse tourist attractions within Visakhapatnam and the surrounding AP region, including beaches, temples, historical sites, cultural attractions and natural beauty make it an ideal location for cruise ships to dock and tourists to explore the city.”
