Carnival Cruise Line Will Unveil Plans Tomorrow For A $195M Terminal At PortMiami That Will Be A ‘Beauty’

Update: A commission meeting to is scheduled for tomorrow (September 19) where Carnival’s plans will be unveiled.

 

The historic expansion at PortMiami appears to set to continue, with yet another spectacular cruise terminal possibly about to be unveiled.

The latest terminal could be announced by Carnival Cruise Line, Miami-Dade commissioners hinted last week at a meeting of the Miami-Dade Tourism and the Ports Committee.

Carnival will be working on a major expansion of Terminal F, PortMiami Director Juan Kuryla said, and the company will be making a significant investment. Some commissioners have apparently already seen the design, and were effusive in their praise at the meeting.

MSC and Virgin cruise lines have preferential use rights at the terminal for now, and have agreed to work with the county to allow the expansion to go forward.

A special county commission meeting could be scheduled for September 19, commissioners said. The CEOs of all the major cruise lines are expected to be in attendance.

Virgin Trains’ new passenger rail line to PortMiami also continues to remain a priority, commissioners added.

It would be pretty cool to run metro mover over to the island the across to south beach from there

One thing that needs to be done is improve the signage to get around there. It’s a maze, the IKEA of ports.

This port is becoming a national landmark. Not quite the Vegas strip but close. Disney needs to step up to the competition.

Did you know there’s quite a lovely park on Port Miami called Seafarer’s Park ? Do a google aerial looksee. Basketball, Volleyball, Huge Pool, Tennis, etc. It’s pretty sweet.

I heard Carnival is the worst out of the 3 major cruise lines. Is that true?

The improvementto the port of Miami will increase tourism and I can’t wait for the bright light train to star operation.

With all of this investment in cruise terminals, it’s hard to understand why ships still don’t have shore power. I know that topic comes up here occasionally. What is the issue? Is the City of Miami unable to provide utilities?

People here just don’t care about the air they breathe apparently.

I guess Amtrak is never going to run trains to The MIC – that’s too bad — all the county commissioners and the county mayor has run away from solving that issue
