PortMiami has won Porthole Cruise Magazine's Editor-in-Chief Award for Best U.S. Port for two consecutive years. Porthole Cruise Magazine is ranked among the nation's leading consumer cruise and travel publications.
"Miami is one of the world's most exciting cities to explore before or after a cruise," said Bill Panoff, publisher and editor-in-chief of Porthole Cruise Magazine. "PortMiami and its surrounding areas offer shopping, entertainment, culture -- and one of the most quintessential sailaways imaginable."
“I am so proud of PortMiami’s hard working team,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “This award recognizes our seaport for its excellence. Congratulations to the entire PortMiami team and dedicated partners including the cruise lines, the International Longshoremen’s Association, Transportation Security Administration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Miami, U.S. Coast Guard, and Biscayne Bay Pilots among so many others. Thank you for making PortMiami’s 5.34 million cruise passengers’ experience a top priority.”
