Autism Awareness Month

Bright lights, big city! In support of World Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd, PortMiami joined other landmarks across the world in dressing the famous Port Bridge up in blue. The international Light It Up Blue campaign, organized by Autism Speaks, is aimed at improving autism awareness around the world. April is National Autism Awareness Month and PortMiami is proud to have helped give it a colorful kick-off.

PortMiami – Patron of the Arts

PortMiami is turning the ordinary into the extraordinary by supporting two projects as part of Miami-Dade County’s Art in Public Places program. Jim Drain’s Bollard Project transforms the simple, functional parking bollards found throughout the Port into echoes of maritime flags and signage. And Bhakti Baxter’s Coral Reef City turns the Port’s parking booths into life-size sea coral. The colors and imagery of both projects are a perfect fit for the Port’s tropical landscape. Come on by and take a look!

Cruise Capital of the World

PortMiami is proud to welcome two new ships to their line-up this 2014 cruise season: MSC Cruises' MSC Divina and Norwegian Cruise Line's newest ship, the Norwegian Getaway. Last season marked the Port's largest expansion ever in a single season and this year, that expansion continues. In 2013 the Port once again surpassed the four million mark for passengers traveling through its terminals. PortMiami anticipates that number will climb to close to five million this season. Bon voyage!
