Miami-based cruise line operator Royal Caribbean Cruises officially opened its new terminal at PortMiami on November 2.

The new cruise terminal, Terminal A, would accommodate the Royal Caribbean’s newest Oasis-class cruise ships, the largest cruise ships in the world.

Nicknamed the Crown of Miami, the newest addition to PortMiami would be home to the new giants, Symphony of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, each bringing over 5,500 passengers per visit to the terminal.

The terminal and adjacent parking structure will cover 170,000 square feet on 10 acres in the northeast section of the port.

“This will make PortMiami Royal Caribbean’s largest cruise port in the U.S., solidifying PortMiami’s status as the Cruise Capital of the World,” Carlos Gimenez, Miami-Dade County Mayor, earlier said.

Expected to handle at least 30 percent of the port’s projected passenger traffic, the new facility would double RCL’s current passenger traffic in PortMiami.
