Norwegian Cruise LinesMay 2, 2017 (Miami Today) – County commissioners on Tuesday approved an agreement between Miami-Dade and Norwegian Cruise Lines (Bahamas) Ltd. for construction of a new cruise terminal, expected to cost $100 million, at PortMiami.

The agreement gives the company preferential berthing rights at cruise terminal J for its Prestige Cruise Holdings vessels operated by Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises while providing the county with a minimum annual 45 vessel calls during each fiscal year, according to a memo from Deputy Mayor Jack Osterholt. That’s 15 more than a previous agreement, which had a minimum of 30 Prestige Cruise Holdings vessels (PCH) each fiscal year.


It provides a new cruise terminal J agreement and outlines an agreement for construction of a new cruise terminal B (and combining existing terminals B and C into a single cruise terminal C) along with changes to preferential berthing rights and term extensions.

Norwegian will continue paying dock and wharf fees according to small passenger vessel tariff rates berthing at terminal J for the remainder of fiscal 2016-2017. As of Oct. 1 and through the term until Sept. 30, 2019, the cruise line will pay the county full tariff rates for dockage and use of the wharf.
