PortMiami, the cruise capital of the world will continue to support the cruise industry with the waiver of fees. It’s very important for such a larger player in the industry to work alongside the cruise lines and the port fees are an important factor for that.
Waiver of Cruise Line Fees at PortMiami
As the cruise industry continues to suffer due to the suspension of operations around the world, the cruise capital of the world continues to offer support. One of the main ways PortMiami is helping is removing fees.
Mayor Daniella Levine Cava has extended the waiver for lay berth and harbor fees for the port’s cruise line partners. The waiver extension which was announced on December 21, 2020 will is remaining in effect from November 17, 2020, through January 31, 2021.
Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, said:
“Miami-Dade County will continue to support our cruise line partners throughout these unprecedented times.”
“As we await the safe return of cruising, we will maintain our commitment to our stakeholders who have shown great resilience during this crisis.”
This extension follows a previous one which Cruise Hive reported in October. The fees were removed from October 9 through November 16. The waiver of fees has been in place since cruise lines first suspended operations in March 2020.
In recent weeks cruise ships have started returning to the port to preparing for the resumption of cruises. Just last week three more Carnival cruise ships arrived back, Carnival Breeze arrived back a week before that, and Carnival Horizon at the end of November.
PortMiami is starting to show signs of cruise activity and there is a lot to look forward to including new cruise terminals and cruise line offerings.
