Known as 'the cruise capital of the world', PortMiami is a large seaport and cruise terminal in Miami, Florida. Situated on Dodge Island in Biscayne Bay, PortMiami is the closest U.S. port to the Caribbean and Latin America, and sees nearly 5 million cruise passengers each year. Host to 18 different cruise brands, including Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Lines, and Carnival Cruise Lines, PortMiami is the main departure point for cruises to the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Mexico and Europe. The nearest shops, cafes, and restaurants are in Bayside Marketplace, a 22-minute walk cross Port Boulevard bridge.

Hotels near PortMiami

Miami offers an extensive array of accommodation from simple motels up to swish art deco hotels. The nearest hotels to PortMiami are in Downtown Miami, where you'll find mid-range chain hotels, upmarket and boutique properties with outdoor pools, and hip bars and restaurants. There are budget options available, including roadside motels and inns. While Miami is a year-round destination, winter is busy and draws big events like Art Basel and the Art Deco Weekend, which pushes room prices up. For the best hotel deals visit between September and November, when temperatures are still warm, but there's a risk of hurricanes.

Where to stay near PortMiami

PortMiami is sandwiched between Downtown Miami and Miami Beach. Many cruise passengers opt to stay in Downtown as it offers easy access to the port. A mix of glittering skyscrapers and century-old houses, and home to the Perez Art Museum Miami and Bayfront Park, this area is popular with both corporate and leisure guests. South of Downtown is Brickell, the city's business district where you'll find upmarket bars, restaurants and glitzy shopping malls. To the east of PortMiami and set on a spit overlooking Biscayne Bay is Miami Beach, famous for its art deco architecture, fashion scene and sandy beaches.
