MSC announces the construction of a new cruise terminal in Miami
MSC Cruises and Miami-Dade County announced an agreement to extend the ship owner’s preferential berth rights, as well as the construction of a new AAA cruise terminal at the Port of Miami, scheduled for completion in October 2022.
“The new agreement and the expansion of the partnership with the Port of Miami and Miami-Dade County is another important step in the growth of MSC Cruises business as we continue to strengthen our global presence with a strategic focus in North America,” celebrated the president of the company, Pierfrancesco Vago.
Miami operates as an exclusive MSC shipping port in the United States and, with the new agreement, the company’s preferred berthing rights will be extended to Sundays. Before, Saturdays already had such a preference.
Following the construction of the new terminal, the port will be able to receive the company’s new generation of transatlantic ships, such as the MSC World Class, which is still under construction and will carry seven thousand guests.
