The $100 million cruise ship terminal concept is proposed by the Port of Brisbane Authority and backed by Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise Lines.

If approved, it would be built by the private sector without the needing for public funding. 

Brisbane's current cruise terminal can only support ships as large as 270 meters, but cruise ships these days are getting larger and larger.
