New MSC Termial at Port of Miami

It was announced this week that MSC Cruises would begin construction on the world's largest cruise ship terminal in Miami, which will be the largest in North America. The terminal will have the capacity to handle up to 36,000 people per day and will be able to accommodate three cruise ships.

Located close to Royal Caribbean's Terminal A, the new Miami terminal is slated to open in late 2023 and will serve both international and domestic passengers. It will have the capacity to host three cruise ships of the latest generation at the same time. Construction on two of the new docks is being done by MSC Cruises, with the third being done by Miami-Dade County.

Preparations for the Cruise Capital of the World’s new terminal have been underway since last July, when the Cruise Division of MSC Group and Fincantieri announced a partnership under which Fincantieri Infrastructure would build the state-of-the-art facility. It features a striking design by award-winning global architecture firm Arquitectonica aimed at adding a new layer of beauty to Miami’s iconic skyline.

The new terminal will accommodate the cruise line’s largest and most environmentally advanced cruise ships, including MSC Cruises’ newest flagship, MSC Seashore, and the cruise line’s future LNG-powered World Class ships. Most cruise ships deployed there will be ready to plug in to the local power grid at berth, in line with PortMiami’s plans to enable shore power connectivity.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine-Cava made the following statement:
"In Miami-Dade County, we are forging our way to the future with investments that will stimulate growth and expanded opportunities for our local economy. As our port continues to grow, the opportunities for our community—in jobs, contracts, and services—can only increase,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “The new MSC mega cruise terminal will simultaneously service three new-generation passenger vessels, potentially handling up to 36,000 travelers per day. This architectural wonder will allow the cruise line to deploy some of its most environmentally high-performing ships, including its new World Class fleet currently under construction. A big thank you to MSC Cruises and Fincantieri for their solid partnership."

President of MSC Cruises USA, Rubén Rodriguez, made the following statement:
"Our new terminal at PortMiami represents MSC Cruises’ commitment to growing in North America and will help drive our expansion in South Florida and beyond. 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. We’re proud of our partnership with Fincantieri, PortMiami and Miami-Dade County, and it’s a privilege to be able to contribute to the region’s continued growth and vitality."
