Singapore's cruise operations, currently split between the Singapore Cruise Centre at HarbourFront and the Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore at Marina South, will be unified in the forthcoming years.

The Straits Times reports that this consolidation will facilitate the creation of a continuous promenade as part of the expansive Greater Southern Waterfront project. The transition of three berths—Tanjong Pagar, Keppel, and Brani—from HarbourFront to Tuas is scheduled for completion by 2027, a plan that was previously disclosed.

Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) Chief Executive Lim Eng Hwee stated, "With the port moving, there’s a lot of infrastructural work that needs to be done – some reclamation and the cruise hub will be formed as part of that. And when all the infrastructure is done, we will progressively build up the area.”

Lim also noted that over the last thirty to forty years, there has been a growing recognition of the need for flexibility, emphasizing that it is essential to “always have the ability to make big changes, in the event that there’s a big driving force that changes the way we live, work and play”.
