Royal Caribbean Cruises recently opened Terminal A at the Port Miami Cruise Terminal. Terminal A is the largest cruise port in the United States, expected to welcome 2 million passengers a year. The terminal was made in collaboration with the Miami-Dade County in South Florida. Its opening marks an important milestone in growth for Port Miami and South Florida’s cruise industry. With the latest technological innovations allowing passengers to go from curb to cabin in 10 minutes, this terminal aims to take passenger experience to the next level.
Arconas is excited to be a part of the passenger’s journey throughout the terminal. From our X Series waste and recycling bins designed for use in high traffic areas to our award-winning Morelli benches, the passenger’s needs were kept in mind.
The X – Series sleek and sophisticated Smokestax and Supertrash box goes perfectly with the sparkling glass structure of the terminal. The maintenance friendly stainless steel bins complement the building’s clean design.
The Morelli bench’s unique triangular tapered legs give a subtle nautical nod to a ship’s sails. The benches placed outside the terminal are all metal, while the ones placed inside have seats made of extremely durable natural ipe wood. The terminal’s exterior cloud sliver benches are made with ecofriendly components and contrasts beautifully with the building’s dark exterior walls. The finish also ties in well with the exterior X Series Smokestax and Super Trashbox.
Indoors, the elegant the ipe wood allows for a touch of nature indoors, mixing steel and wood in a functional way. Both seating options offer durable and comfortable place for passengers to rest on any stage of their journey. Also placed throughout the terminal are custom powder coated RUX waste and recycling bins with decals that clearly show passengers how to sort their waste.
The terminal was spearheaded by Bermello Ajamil & Partners a Miami based design firm with the goal of improving guest experience starting from the moment they enter the terminal. It has been nicknamed Crown of Miami for its’ design of two peaks, resembling passing ships. The terminal will be home to 2 of Royal Caribbean’s largest international ships Symphony of the Seas and Allure of Seas.
