MIAMI ( January 28, 2021 )

Homeporting Carnival Celebration at PortMiami continues a nearly 50-year partnership that has seen Carnival grow to become the World’s Most Popular Cruise Line and PortMiami earn the distinction as The Cruise Capital of the World.

The 471,500-square-foot Terminal F will be Carnival’s third terminal at PortMiami and its largest in South Florida.
