Royal Caribbean is building a world-class cruise terminal at the Cruise Capital of the World, PortMiami. The cruise terminal is currently under construction and scheduled to open this fall.
This past weekend, we had the opportunity to cruise by the new terminal and get photos of the construction of Terminal A. Once completed, the terminal will be home two of the largest cruise ships in the world, Symphony of the Seas and Allure of the Seas.
Currently, PortMiami welcomes approximately 750,000 Royal Caribbean passengers annually, representing about 15 percent of its overall passenger traffic. Once the new cruise terminal is completed, it is anticipated that Royal Caribbean will generate at least 1.8 million travelers at PortMiami — representing no less than 30 percent of the port’s projected passenger traffic.
Once completed in October 2018, Terminal A will be LEED certified and accommodate the largest cruise ships in the world. Royal Caribbean will implement the best technologies to deliver a state–of–the–art guest experience.
PortMiami is among America’s busiest ports and recognized across the globe as the Cruise Capital of the World and Global Gateway. PortMiami contributes more than $27 billion annually to the South Florida economy and helps generate 207,000 direct, indirect, and induced jobs.
