Royal Caribbean's $250M 'Crown Of Miami’ Is Now Complete

Royal Caribbean’s $250M ‘Crown Of Miami’ Is Now Complete

Construction is now complete at Royal Caribbean’s new terminal at PortMiami, known as Crown of Miami, or Terminal A.

Miami is already the number one port in the world by number of cruise passengers, but those numbers will now skyrocket. Passenger count for Royal Caribbean will rise from 750,000 to 2 million annually.

Crown of Miami is said to have cost $250 million. Completion took a little over  a year.

The world’s largest cruise ship, Symphony of the Seas will be based at the new terminal, as will Allure of the Seas, which was the largest until recently.

Broadway Malyan is the architect.

Saw the Allure in port yesterday doing what appeared to be a test run. The ship looked mostly empty. Pretty cool!

I was hoping they were going to cover the garage add-ons. Looks unfinished to me.

Donate 5 of your many millions to Royal Caribbean so they can finish it.

You don’t have to get nasty. This is a forum that allows expressing opinions on architecture, and I gave one. Instead of replying with yours, you chose an ad hominem attack.
Architects created two garages in Design District and one in Wynwood that are distinct, imaginative, and beautiful in my opinion. I don’t know the relative costs of those efforts to the RC garage, but they show what is possible.

I’d rather they not plaster a bunch of random crap on the garage. A garage is a garage, and it looks fine.

Super disappointing, what happened to all the blue lights and the garage?

I guess the garage looks like the renderings given the correct light conditions.

Also, RIP south beach people. Massive air pollution coming your way.

I was on a disney cruise a while back and they usually turned off the smoke stack filers at 10pm.. Then a huge cloud of black smoke followed that ship! Hopefully they’ll keep the smoke to a minimum when they’re in port 🙂

That’s correct. They use clean fuel when in port and near cities.

Um, Miami Beach has more immediate and very pressing concerns to worry about at the moment.. like rising sea levels.

“Massive air pollution coming your way.”

Emissions from rush hour traffic on the MacArthur Causeway are worse for the environment than any modern cruise ship.

Are you sure? Gas engine emissions are far less worse than diesel emissions.
