The US Port of Seattle has unveiled three shortlisted teams to proceed in the process towards selecting a partner in the development and operation of a new cruise facility at the north end of Terminal 46.

The first team is Cruise Industry Leaders Group, a partnership between Royal Caribbean Cruise, MSC Cruises, Carnival Corporation and SSA Marine, a subsidiary of Carrix.

The second shortlisted team is Global Ports Holding and Civil & Building North America and the third one Ports America, teaming with Jacobs Engineering Group.

“We are delighted about the prospect of partnering with each of these highly qualified teams,” Stephanie Jones Stebbins, Managing Director of the port’s Maritime Division and leader of the selection team, commented.

The three teams responded to the port’s request for qualifications (RFQ) issued in March this year and will now be invited to respond to a request for proposals, expected to be released in June.

The Port of Seattle is targeting delivery of the new cruise terminal for the 2022 cruise season.

Early estimates are that a cruise terminal could be constructed for around USD 200 million. A public-private-partnership approach to build the terminal will have the port contributing half that cost.
