With Virgin Voyages set to start sailing from PortMiami in 2020, Virgin is going to start making it easier for their customers – and other cruisers – to get from Orlando International to PortMiami without needing to rent a car, or take a bus.
The Miami-Dade County Commission has approved ratification of an agreement for Brightline, soon to be Virgin Trains, to build a station at PortMiami by the end of 2020.

The Virgin Trains PortMiami Station will connect PortMiami – known as the ‘Cruise Capital of the World’ – with Orlando International Airport.
“This is a first-of-its-kind train-to-port station that will connect the cruise capital of the world with a car-free option for millions of cruisers looking to start their vacation a little earlier.” TravelPulse report Patrick Goddard, President of Virgin Trains, as saying in a statement. “This is a tremendous partnership and infrastructure investment between PortMiami, Miami Dade County and Brightline that will increase mobility, take cars off the road and provide our state’s visitors an easier way to get around.”
