Norwegian Cruise Line is planning a major new terminal at PortMiami.

The company this week unveiled the design of the new dedicated Norwegian Cruise Line terminal, which will launch in May 2018, pending county approval.

The new terminal, slated for completion by the fall of 2019, timed with the brand’s debut of the Norwegian Encore ship in Miami.

“Norwegian has been sailing from Miami for over fifty years, longer than any other cruise line, and we are honored to be partnering with PortMiami and Miami-Dade County to construct an iconic terminal that will contribute to Miami’s world famous skyline and strengthen its position as the Cruise Capital of the World,” said Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.  “This terminal marks the latest step in our continual efforts to strengthen our presence in strategic home ports around the world.  We look forward to welcoming Norwegian Encore and the thousands of guests sailing on Norwegian Cruise Line and her sister brands to this state-of-the-art terminal.”

The project designed by Bermello Ajamil and Partners, will be built to LEED Silver standards.

It will accommodate ships up to 5,000 passengers, with a dedicated lounge and service area, a new garage and even valet parking, among other amenities.
