WCN Editorial Team 10 Mar 2017 NORTH AMERICA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Royal Caribbean Cruises and Miami-Dade County have broken ground on the new cruise Terminal A at PortMiami in Florida, US.

Terminal A will serve as homeport to several Royal Caribbean International ships, including two of the world’s largest and most innovative cruise ships – Allure of the Seas and the newly announced Symphony of the Seas.

The project will have the capacity to accommodate a 1,300ft long ship and will conform to LEED specifications.

Following the completion of the new cruise terminal project, Royal Caribbean is expected to welcome about 1.8M passengers annually at PortMiami, accounting for about 30% of the port’s estimated passenger traffic.

Miami-Dade County mayor Carlos Gimenez said: “Miami-Dade County is happy to welcome Royal Caribbean’s Terminal A, and the economic factors that will benefit Miami-Dade.

“Our public-private partnership will have an estimated economic impact of $500M and generate more than 4,000 jobs. This will make PortMiami Royal Caribbean’s largest cruise port in the US, solidifying PortMiami’s status as the ‘Cruise Capital of the World’.”

The terminal is scheduled for completion in October 2018.
