The two-story terminal has the ability to process the largest cruise ships in the world, with passenger and crew counts well over 6,000, and simultaneously accommodate both embark and debark operations. One of its unique characteristics is a 1,600-seat passenger pre-boarding area that can be converted into a 1,000 seat venue for community events.


TLC designed the building systems to meet the rigorous requirements of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), as well as heightened security requirements. The structural systems consist of composite concrete, structural steel elevated decks and walkways supported by durable precast concrete tilt-up panels and a precast concrete deep pile foundation system.
