Norwegian’s $100M ‘Pearl Of Miami’ Cruise Terminal Now Rising

Norwegian Cruise Line’s new terminal, known as Pearl of Miami, is now rising at PortMiami.

The $100 million facility will feature a spiraled, multi-level facade inspired by the nautilus. It is being built next to Royal Caribbean’s newly opened Crown of Miami terminal.

The terminal will include 166,500 square feet of space, with enough space to accommodate ships carrying up to 5,000 passengers.

Bermello Ajamil & Partners of Miami is the architect. Norwegian itself is also headquartered in Miami.

Completion is scheduled for fall of 2019. A ship called Norwegian Encore is also now under construction and will make its debut at the new terminal in Miami at the same time.

Really need some environmental impact studies before any more mega terminals built, especially MSC which wants to house 2×5000 passenger ships at a time.

Between the emissions from the ship power plants and all the taxi/uber/buses going to the port this can seriously effect local air quality.

How about using shore power while in port?

Man shut the heck up they not polluting the air no more than it already has been. If you want a study do your own study an make sure you don’t drive your car either. Yea you know you thing you drive that also pollutes the air?

I voted this comment down because it failed to highlight the positive of these developments. By generating more money for the local economy, there could be more funding for environmental resources. However, our air quality and torquoise waters are a big part of what makes Miami great, so he/she is not completely wrong

I work in the port of Miami and transferred here from the Port of Los Ángeles. He is not wrong about using ship to shore power, all the port of LA has had it installed as ships pollute the air more than all the cars combined. Not sure how it affects the air here though as generally the air flows off shore to the east so maybe we don’t see the effects here as much as LA.

Um, Central L.A. is surrounded by mountains. That’s why smog gets trapped. To say a boat pollutes more than all the cars combined is asinine.

Would you put a giant diesel power station on Port Miami? Because that’s what the cruise ships are.

The ships *do* pollute much more than cars on the road, FACT.

Cruise ships are toxic waste dumps. The exhaust incredible amounts of pollution because they burn the dirtiest and cheapest fuel they can buy, it’s almost like tar, in fact they have to heat the fuel to get it to flow, otherwise it like jello. Get the facts. https://amp.theguardian.com/environment/2016/may/21/the-worlds-largest-cruise-ship-and-its-supersized-pollution-problem

They are getting better but it’ll take time. Look at the top of symphony of the seas. Solar panels and also getting close to a hybrid engine.

the industry is currently in a transition to phase in hybrid engines that also run on LNG which should reduce emissions considerably
