The 60/40 joint venture will be jointly managed by both parties, with the majority stake held by Penang Port. This is the second time in weeks that RCL has announced its involvement in an ASEAN port. At the recent Seatrade, it reportedly sealed a partnership with the Philippine Department of Tourism in the Aklan province to build a purpose-built cruise ship terminal in the Western Visayas’ Caticlan or Boracay.
