RCI to open new terminal in Miami

RCI to open new terminal in Miami

Royal Caribbean will design, build and operate a new cruise terminal in Miami, Florida that can handle the largest cruise ships in the world, set to debut in late 2018.

The Miami Herald is reporting that the new 170,000-square foot terminal (dubbed Terminal A), a result of a new partnership between Miami-Dade County and Royal Caribbean, will be able to handle even Oasis-class cruise ships and open in late 2018. Terminal A would house an angular glass center and a parking garage with about 1,000 parking spaces at the northeastern side of the port, designed by England-based global architecture firm Broadway Malyan, the report stated.

Royal Caribbean has not announced yet which of its ships will call Terminal A home. The dock at the proposed Terminal A would have space for a 1,300-foot long ship (the Oasis ships are nearly 1,200 feet long). Royal Caribbean’s current PortMiami dock at Terminal G only fits ships that are about 1,000 feet long.
