Miami, FL – Construction of the new Norwegian Cruise Terminal at PortMiami is well underway and already looking impressive.
The terminal development started in May 2018 and is scheduled to be completed by fall 2019. The modern new facility is set to be open in time for Norwegian Encore’s debut at Miami to offer Caribbean cruises. The ship will be the fourth Breakaway-plus class vessel and is currently under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. The new cruise ship will have a capacity of almost 4,000 passengers.
Miami-Dade County will invest $100 million to build the new terminal, with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. augmenting the county’s allocated funds with its own contribution to PortMiami.
Designed by Miami-based firm Bermello Ajamil & Partners, Inc., the modern terminal draws inspiration from a nautilus, with a spiraled and multi-level façade opening up to grand ocean views. Innovative lighting, inviting indoor and outdoor waiting areas, and other guest-centric elements will enhance the overall passenger experience.
The new terminal will be almost 166,500 square feet and offer grand ocean views with its modern design and openness to the water. It will be able to cater to the much larger 5,000 passenger capacity ships with new technologies to provide a faster and smoother embarkation and disembarkation process. Luggage check-in will be enhanced along with security screening. There will also be a dedicated lounge for large groups and charters.
