The new terminal at PortMiami will accommodate for 36,000 passenger movements a day

MSC Group began construction of its new $350 million cruise terminal at PortMiami in Florida, USA, on 10 March 2022.

The terminal will feature four embarkation decks, accommodate 36,000 passenger movements a day and provide shore power connectivity.

Once completed, MSC Cruises will use the terminal to expand its operations to the Caribbean, attracting more to travel from North America.

“Our new terminal at PortMiami represents MSC Cruises' commitment to growing in North America and will help drive our expansion in South Florida by offering our guests an unbeatable experience that starts before they ever step onboard,” said Rubén Rodriguez, president of MSC Cruises USA. “It’s also part of our larger sustainability goals, which include deploying our most modern and environmentally advanced ships to North America, the continued development of our one-of-a-kind Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, and our pledge to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.”

Fincantieri Infrastructure will complete construction of the four-story facility by 2024. The project also includes a multi-level carpark for 2,400 vehicles and the construction of a new road.  

“As this port continues to develop, the opportunities for our community, whether in jobs, contracts, and services, can only increase,” said Daniella Levine Cava, mayor of Miami-Dade County. “MSC’s new mega cruise terminal will significantly impact the entire region. Additionally, this architectural marvel will allow the line to deploy some of its most environmentally high-performing ships including their world-class fleet.”
