A glimpse of the vision for the new US$158 million Brisbane International Cruise Terminal via fly-through footage was released on Thursday.

According to State Development Minister Cameron Dick, the new facility would be the first mega cruise ship terminal in Queensland, that could attract the largest ships in the world, at 270 metres and longer.

It would accommodate ships that were unable to dock at Portside, Hamilton.

Bookings are now open for the first cruise season in 2020, with a total of 180 bookings for ships in the first year from cruise companies like Carnival, Norwegian and Royal Caribbean.

The Queensland government approved the new project in October last year, which was predicted to double Brisbane's cruise ship numbers.

The project is due to open in the middle of 2020.
