Bali: From the Top Down

Cruise Ship to Call at Northern Port of Celukan Bawang, Recapturing a Past Era of Bali Sea Tourism


In the seminal days of Bali tourism - the years just before and after WWII, the Dutch shipping line - KPM (Koninklijke Paketvaart Maatschappij) paid regular calls in Bali, embarking and disembarking their passengers in Bali’s northern regency of Buleleng at the port of Celukan Bawang.

Passengers would travel down the narrow roads pass the island’s former capital of Singaraja, often traveling through Kintamani on the way to Denpasar, where Bali’s growing trickle of foreign visitors typically camped out at the KPM hotel (now the Inna Bali Hotel).

Celukan Bawang today is more commonly used as a port for the discharge of cement, with cruise ships now typically calling at the eastern ports of Tanah Ampo or Padang Bai, or at the southern port of Benoa.

Everything Old is New Again

The 212-passenger Seabourn Legend is scheduled to relive a bit of cruise history when it calls at the port of Celukan Bawang on February 13, 2012.

The pier at Celukan Bawang has recently been extended to a length of 140 meters, just sufficient to accommodate the 134-meter long vessel.

Because of the short duration of stay for ships calling on Bali, ship calling at Bali’s north open a whole new range of shore excursions to the less-visited areas of Bali located in Bali’s North, West and mountain-lake district.
