Virgin Voyages are building a home port fit for their new cruise ship, Scarlet Lady.
The building is set to start next year once final approval is granted, with completion due for November 2021.
The terminal will be a palm grove shape designed by Miami specialists Arquitectonica inspired by Miami Beach’s native trees. The building will be on the north-west side of PortMiami and be two-storeys high and 100,000 square foot.
Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson said:
With our new terminal and a long-term commitment to PortMiami, we also announced that our first ship, the Scarlet Lady, will continue to sail to the Caribbean from Miami throughout 2021. Our second ship will sail from Miami during the fall/winter cruise season of 2021-22. What’s more, I let slip that we are starting work on our fourth ship, as we seek to build Virgin Voyages into a fleet of the finest ships on the seven seas.
Virgin Voyages has also revealed that cruises will go on sale on 14 February 2019, with the line to launch Scarlet Lady in 2020.
