Miami is the cruise capital of the world and it continues to support the cruise industry by extending the waiver for lay berth and harbor fees.

Miami Waivers Cruise Line Fees

With cruise lines still suspending operations until December 2020 and for many even longer it comes as no surprise that Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez has announced to extends its waiver on berth and harbor fees.

The extension runs through November 16, 2020 and would be of huge help to major cruise lines that use PortMiami including Carnival Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean.

Mayor Gimenez, said:

“Miami-Dade County will continue to support its cruise line partners.”

“It is because of our partners that PortMiami is recognized as the Cruise Capital of the World. We’re grateful and committed to their future.”

The waiver was previously through October 10 and was originally announced back in March when cruise first started to suspend operations.
