On the 18th of May, 18 months from the start of the construction, Roma Cruise Terminal unveiled its new cruise terminal, Terminal Amerigo Vespucci. Covering 11,000 sqm, the terminal is one of the largest in Europe and marks an important milestone for the company jointly owned by Costa, MSC and Royal Caribbean Cruises.

At an investment of around € 20 million, the new terminal is designed to meet the requirements of the largest cruise ships further consolidating Civitavecchia as one of Europe’s premier cruise ports.

Proceeding from the atrium to the first floor, passengers will be welcomed in a check-in area with 60 counters that can be doubled to 120 ports.  Close to 90 monitors in the check-in area will keep passengers updated on their check-in status s well as itinerary and other useful information. A  VIP lounge, the “Cruise Bar” and terrace are designed to guarantee a pleasant experience for passengers waiting to board their ship. The terminal also provides photo opportunities for passengers. Boarding will be via passenger bridges, one of which will come into operation simultaneously with the inauguration of the terminal.

As part of the terminal building project, Roma Cruise Terminal embarked on upgrading the quay’s ship reception facilities on with the installation of LAN connection columns, a new 250 ton bollard, terminal lighting as well as and upgrade of the fenders and guard rooms.

Over 50 companies were engaged in the construction of Terminal Amerigo Vespucci, 20 of which were from Civitavecchia, another example of the cruise sector’s contribution to the economy of Civitavecchia, Lazio and Italy. The cruise activity is estimated to generate each year around Euro 91 million in direct revenue and expenditure to the economy of Civitavecchia and an economic contribution of around Euro 400 million to the Lazio region. Cruise activity in Civitavecchia supports around 1,700 jobs.

The board of Roma Cruise Terminal chose to name the new terminal Amerigo Vespucci, the Italian explorer as a testimony of Italy’s links with the world as experienced daily in the port of Civitavecchia with the ever increasing number of cruise ships which chose it as a port of call.

John Portelli, General Manager of Roma Cruise Terminal stated that “since 2007, when Roma Cruise Terminal commenced its activity, around 23 million cruise passengeers passed through the port of Civitavecchia. It is small wonder that over the years, cruise activity has evolved into one if not the primary activity in the port of Civitavecchia. In this respect, Terminal Amerigo Vespucci is further testament to the shareholders’ contribution to the growth of the city and port of Civitavecchia and the Lazio region”.

Terminal Amerigo Vespucci was designed by Studio Vicini Architetti.
