In March 2019, Cebu Port Authority (CPA) announced its plans to convert the existing passenger ship berths (deepwater docks located behind Malacanang sa Sugbo / Bureau of Customs building) into a dedicated cruise ship terminal. The new terminal's location is in close proximity to popular tourist attractions like Magellan’s Cross, Fort San Pedro, Basilica Minore del Sto. Santo Nino de Cebu, The Metropolitan Cathedral.

In 2019, The Philippines government allocated over Philippine peso 300 million (~USD 6 million) for building a new cruise terminal (at Pier 2) as the old building was still occupied by Malacanang (official residence of country's President in the Visayan Islands).
