MIAMI -

Port Miami's slogan is that it's the cruise capital of the world, and six new ships will call it home in the next few weeks.

The newest cruise ship is making it's debut in Miami Thursday. Oceania Cruises' ship Riveria arrived Thursday from Barcelona.

Between November and December, six new cruise ships are moving to Miami. In addition to Oceania Cruise Lines, Regent Cruise Lines, Disney Cruise's The Wonder, Celebrity's Reflection, and the Carnival Breeze will call the Port of Miami home.

These are premiere ships that have all the bells and whistles. Carnival Breeze, which arrived in Miami last week, comes fully equipped with a water park and outdoor theater.

Oceania's Riviera ship features a multi-million dollar art collection and ten different restaurants, leaving plenty of room to play for their 1250 guests.

In South Florida, the cruise industry is estimated to have a 3 billion dollar economic impact each year.
