Last week, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. officially opened Terminal A. The newest addition to PortMiami is the largest cruise port in the U.S.
“Terminal A is an important milestone in the growth of the cruise industry in South Florida and underscores our commitment to Miami, where our company was founded almost 50 years ago,” said Richard D. Fain, CEO and chairman of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, in press materials.
Terminal A will serve as homeport to Royal Caribbean International ships such as Symphony of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, two of the world’s largest cruise ships. PortMiami currently serves 750,000 Royal Caribbean passengers annually, representing roughly 15 percent of the port’s overall passenger traffic. Because of the new terminal, Royal Caribbean expects to increase its Miami passenger intake to nearly 2 million annually.
“We look forward to all the new and exciting developments the opening of Terminal A will bring to our cruise lines, our guests, and the Miami community. We are proud that our Oasis class vessels, each hosting more than 5,000 guests, will now be able to call on PortMiami,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International, in press materials.
