One of the cruise terminals at PortMiami, Florida is receiving a huge $38 Million upgrade as long as a build contract is completed.

Terminal F at PortMiami is to get the large investment thanks to MSC Cruises upcoming cruise ship MSC Seaside. The large vessel which will be sailing out of the port from December 2017 will be 154,000 gross tons.

The terminal facility will need to be upgraded to handle the increased passenger capacity. Upgrades will include expanded parking and baggage areas along with a state of the art facility which can handle large amounts of passengers.

Biz Journals reports the county has already given the green light for the upgrade and is now working on a build contract for the improved cruise facility. The upgraded terminal F will be able to cater to passenger ships over MSC Seaside’s 5,170 capacity including any of MSC Cruises future Meraviglia or World class ships.

The MSC Seaside sailing out of Miami, Florida is part of the cruise lines $5.3 Billion expansion plan. Part of this plan is expanding MSC’s operations in North America.
