Port Everglades: a new arrival
Fort Lauderdale (Ft. Lauderdale) is used by several cruise lines as an embarkation and disembarkation point for Caribbean cruises. The actual port in Ft. Lauderdale is known as Port Everglades, and it is the third-busiest cruise port in the world, drawing almost 3 million cruise passengers in its 11 cruise terminals. If you were to look at a topographical map of the eastern seaboard of the United States, you will see that Port Everglades is the deepest harbor south of Norfolk. Speaking at the Seatrade Cruise Shipping convention, port director Phillip Allen said that the extensive renovation of Terminal 18 will allow the world's largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas to debark and embark the 5,400-passenger ship simultaneously. The new Terminal 18 will be the largest single-ship cruise terminal in the world, Allen said, growing from 67,500 square feet of interior space to 240,000 square feet on two floors.
