New terminal to be built at Miami Port

Port MiamiNorwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. (together with NCL Bahamas Ltd.) and Miami-Dade County have reached an agreement to amend and restate a cruise terminal agreement incorporating the construction of a new Cruise Terminal B at PortMiami.  

With the increase in cruise calls that the agreement aims to bring to the Port, approximately 155 new direct full-time jobs will be created.

The new cruise terminal will be able to accommodate vessels carrying 5,000 passengers. Construction is set to be completed in the fall of 2019 on schedule to receive the Norwegian Encore, the newest ship of the Breakaway Plus class.

“Investing in PortMiamis infrastructure positions Miami as a global destination for visitors," said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. "The construction of a new cruise terminal with the capacity to berth an additional 5,000-passenger cruise ship represents thousands of jobs and increased opportunities for our community. We are grateful for Norwegian Cruise Lines continued partnership.” 

"Norwegian Cruise Lines partnership is a big win for the growth and expansion of tourism in Miami-Dade County. We are honored by our partners commitment to PortMiami and Miami-Dade County."
 said Chairwoman of the Miami-Dade County Economic Development and Tourism Committee Rebeca Sosa.

“We are excited to partner with Miami-Dade County, the architects at Bermello Ajamil & Partners, and the team at NV2A and Haskell to create a modern and innovative terminal that will soon welcome guests to a premium experience that begins even before they embark and fully immerse themselves in what it means to cruise with Norwegian,” said Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.
