Carnival Cruise Lines recently began operating from Terminal D and Terminal E, the newest passenger facilities at the Port of Miami.
Providing panoramic views of Miami and Biscayne Bay, the terminals can accommodate approximately 4,000 cruisers through separate embarkation and debarkation facilities.
Dual entry lobbies on the ground floor lead to four security scanners. Twin escalators lead to the second level.
There you'll find a large hall with 50 check-in stations, a VIP lounge, two private group check-in areas and embarkation offices.
After check-in, escalators convey guests to the third floor through an "experiential" photo area to the boarding corridor and loading bridge.
The decor features Carnival's signature red, white and blue colors and patterns. Flat-screen televisions display a welcome video hosted by Carnival's mascot, Fun Ship Freddy, and an audio system plays soft Caribbean background music.
In December, construction is slated to begin on a 750-car parking garage at Terminal D.
