MIAMI | MSC PortMiami (Largest Cruise Terminal)

MSC TO BUILD PORTMIAMI’S BIGGEST EVER CRUISE TERMINAL, WITH DESIGN INSPIRED BY ITALIAN YACHTS

PortMiami, which is already the top cruise port in the world, will be getting its biggest ever cruise terminal from MSC Cruises.

The new terminal will be 350,000 square feet, more than double the size of Royal Caribbean’s newly completed 170,000 square feet “Crown of Miami.”

Two passenger ships carrying up to 7,000 passengers can be accommodated at a time, for a total of 14,000 departing passengers and 28,000 passenger movements (arriving and departing) in a single day. MSC is planning to base their biggest ships at the new terminal.

Arquitectonica is designing the roof to be a “monumental sculpture” that will catch the eye of planes flying overhead, condo tower residents and office workers, and passengers on the upper decks of passing ships, Arquitectonica founder Bernardo Fort-Brescia told Seatrade Cruise News.

Design is inspired by Italian yachts, with transparent sides and aerodynamic lines (MSC is an Italian company). The architect will also exploit the super long site with a building that spans 1,600 feet in length and a fluid design that keeps people moving in the space, Fort-Brescia said.

2,000 parking spaces will be built within the same building, rather than in a separate garage across the street.

Miami-Dade commissioners have approved the deal, which is expected to generate $1.5 billion over 50 years.

In addition to Royal Carribean’s new terminal, Virgin, Norwegian, and Disney have also announced plans for new terminals at the port (Disney hasn’t revealed their design yet).

Construction on the MSC Terminal is expected to begin in early 2020, with completion in late 2022.
