MSC Cruises Reveals Plans for New State-of-the-Art Terminal at PortMiami

MSC Group and Fincantieri announced the signing of a contract for the construction by Fincantieri Infrastructure Florida of a new mega cruise terminal at PortMiami, the cruise industry’s hub in North America and the Caribbean. 

The new terminal reflects an investment of approximately EUR 350 million and will be made up of a multi-level central body to serve as many as three latest-generation ships at the same time, with up to 36,000 travellers transiting every day.

Designed by the award-winning global architecture firm Arquitectonica, it is due to be completed by December 2023.

The new terminal will be able to accommodate the Company’s largest and most environmentally high-performing cruise ships. These include MSC Cruises’ newest flagship MSC Seashore, which is currently nearing completion at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone and due to be deployed out of Miami when she enters service later this year, as well as the line’s future LNG-powered World Class ships.

In line with PortMiami’s plans to enable shore power connectivity, the Company’s ships deployed there will be ready to plug into the local power grid at berth.
