MSC Cruises is currently the world’s fastest growing cruise line and the fourth largest cruise line in the world. The new PortMiami terminals will be capable of hosting two mega cruise ships at the same time— each with a capacity of up to 7,000 guests, — allowing the cruise line to conduct two turnaround operations simultaneously and handle up to 28,000 passenger movements per day.

Pierfrancesco Vago, MSC Cruises Executive Chairman, face the following statement: “We couldn’t be more proud of our long-standing partnership with PortMiami and Miami-Dade County and are looking forward to continue working together for many years to come. From 2017 to 2027, MSC Cruises is introducing 13 next-generation cruise ships which will expand our fleet to a total of 25 ships and triple our guest capacity, reaching over 5 million passengers a year. The new terminal – which, as the renderings clearly show, will be one of the most innovative the industry has seen – will support MSC Cruises planned further expansion in North America by allowing our most innovative ship classes to be represented at PortMiami, the World’s Cruise Capital.”

MSC Cruises currently operates four cruise ships, across four different classes, out of PortMiami, including: MSC Seaside, MSC Armonia, MSC Divina and MSC Meraviglia, which will join the ships sailing from Miami this November.

Work on the new terminals is due to commence in early 2020. MSC Cruises currently estimates that the work will be completed by late 2022, at which time the Company will transfer all its PortMiami operations to the new Terminal.
