Royal Caribbean Cruises has signed an agreement with Miami-Dade County to build and operate a new cruise terminal at PortMiami, Florida.


The new terminal will support PortMiami and will serve as homeport to Royal Caribbean International ships, including a 5,400-passenger Oasis-class ship — the world’s largest cruise ships.

The 16,000sq m terminal, designed by Broadway Malyan, is nicknamed the ‘Crown of Miami’ due to its distinctive shape and will be built on land leased from the county.

The company will also add a 2,000sq m Innovation Lab to its corporate PortMiami’s headquarters.

Miami-Dade County mayor Carlos Gimenez said: “Miami-Dade County is happy to welcome Royal Caribbean’s expansion at PortMiami, and all the economic benefits that come along with it.

“This public-private partnership will have an estimated economic impact of $500M and generate approximately 4,000 jobs.

“Royal Caribbean has been an important part of our world-class community for almost 50 years, and this expansion will once again make PortMiami Royal Caribbean’s largest cruise port in the world. I thank them for their continued investment in and commitment to Miami-Dade.”

The agreement will come before the Miami-Dade County board of county commissioners on 6 July 2016.
