Kompas reports that both governor Made Mangku Pastika and the regent of Karangasem Wayan Geredeg share the opinion that the international port project at Tanah Ampo in East Bali is not yet a realistic port option of for large cruise ships. Proof of this is found in the length of the dock which is only 154 meter while many cruise vessels are at least 180 meters long.

In addition, Pastika also emphasized that until Thursday, March 17th, the central government funded project still lacks the required letter of agreement between the local government and the national administration.

The development of the Tanah Ampo International Port has cost Rp. 104 billion (US$11.5 million) in national and regional funds. While plans were for the new port to welcome 33 foreign cruise vessels in 2011, that plan had an inauspicious beginning when four ships cancelled the early 2011 visits due to the inadequate facilities at the new port.

The Tanah Ampo International Port in located in the Manggis District of Karangasem, approximately 65 kilometers from Bali's capital of Denpasar and covers a land area of 98.89 hectares.

The project is scheduled for completion in 2012, Completion plans include lengthening the current dock from 154 meters to accommodate larger ships. Geredeg, however, said that plans for enhancements must wait for a green light from the Ministry of Transportation.
