Norwegian Cruise Line held a groundbreaking ceremony for an exclusive cruise terminal at PortMiami on April 26.
The move comes on the back of the approval for the construction of the new Cruise Terminal B granted to the cruise company by Miami-Dade County Board of Commissioners on April 10.
The terminal, which will feature some 166,500 square feet, will be able to accommodate vessels carrying 5,000 passengers.
Construction is set to be completed in the fall of 2019 on schedule to receive the Norwegian Encore, the newest ship of NCL’s Breakaway Plus class, when it makes its debut in Miami with seasonal cruises to the Caribbean.
NCL unveiled the design of its dedicated terminal at PortMiami in early March 2018.
