MIAMI | MSC PortMiami (Largest N.America Terminal)

Video Link


PortMiami, which is already the top cruise port in the world, will be getting its biggest ever cruise terminal from MSC Cruises.

The new terminal will be 350,000 square feet, more than double the size of Royal Caribbean’s newly completed 170,000 square feet “Crown of Miami.”

Two passenger ships carrying up to 7,000 passengers can be accommodated at a time, for a total of 14,000 departing passengers and 28,000 passenger movements (arriving and departing) in a single day. MSC is planning to base their biggest ships at the new terminal.

Arquitectonica is designing the roof to be a “monumental sculpture” that will catch the eye of planes flying overhead, condo tower residents and office workers, and passengers on the upper decks of passing ships, Arquitectonica founder Bernardo Fort-Brescia told Seatrade Cruise News.

Design is inspired by Italian yachts, with transparent sides and aerodynamic lines (MSC is an Italian company). The architect will also exploit the super long site with a building that spans 1,600 feet in length and a fluid design that keeps people moving in the space, Fort-Brescia said.

2,000 parking spaces will be built within the same building, rather than in a separate garage across the street.

Miami-Dade commissioners have approved the deal, which is expected to generate $1.5 billion over 50 years.

In addition to Royal Carribean’s new terminal, Virgin, Norwegian, and Disney have also announced plans for new terminals at the port (Disney hasn’t revealed their design yet).

Construction on the MSC Terminal is expected to begin in early 2020, with completion in late 2022.

Groundbreaking Held By MSC For PortMiami’s Biggest Ever Cruise Terminal


A groundbreaking is taking place today at PortMiami for MSC Cruise’s new terminal.

The company also released a revised rendering of the facility, which they promise will become a landmark “mega cruise-terminal.”

It will be the largest cruise terminal in North America, MSC said.

The four-story building will have four embarkation decks, with capacity for up to 36,000 passengers per day. Up to three of the latest generation ships, including MSC’s largest, can be docked simultaneously.

Shore Power is also being built, allowing ships to connect to the electrical grid to reduce pollution.

The terminal is expected to cost $350 million, down from the $410 million previously expected.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Completion is scheduled for the end of 2023.
