Work Begins on Expanding Carnival’s Terminal F in Miami
February 2, 2021
Friday was a special day for Carnival Cruise Line and PortMiami as work officially began on the modernization of Terminal F, which will house the new Carnival Celebration cruise ship.
A big moment for the Carnival House!
Just because Carnival Cruise Line is currently on hold doesn’t mean its plans and plans for the future should be put on hold as well. Carnival Cruise Line celebrated the dedication of its expansion to Terminal F on Friday. The ceremony took place under sunny skies in front of the current terminal.
There was even a surprise from Carnival Dreams. The ship passed, which was a special moment, not only for the people on board, but also for the few crew members that were needed.
Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line, said
We are proud of the role Carnival has played in making Miami the cruise capital of the world, and today marks the continuation of an incredible 50-year partnership with PortMiami and Miami-Dade County. This expanded terminal, purpose-built to celebrate Carnival, will be an incredible addition to the existing facilities of our largest port of call. My sincere thanks to Mayor Levin Cava and all the Miami-Dade officials who made this day possible.
In September 2019, Miami-Dade County approved a terminal expansion plan, which you can read here.

Miami is the headquarters of the Carnival Cruise Line and with a long history of cruises departing from Port Miami, this is a milestone event as the cruise line dedicates itself to the cruise capital of the world.
Final information for F
Port Miami Terminal F is being expanded to accommodate larger cruise ships. The 471,000 square foot facility is expected to be completed in time for Carnival’s 2022 launch. The cost of the modernization is estimated at $170 million.
Terminal F will be the largest terminal in North America after the modernization. Not only will more space be created, but the existing buildings will be given a new look to match the new expanded spaces.
At night, the terminal will be illuminated by permanent LED lighting that will be visible from the MacArthur Causeway. The terminal will be occupied by larger cruise ships and Terminal F is designed to accommodate the increase in passengers.
