Ft. Lauderdale as a Home Port and Destination

Ft. Lauderdale Home Port

Port Everglades is located on the opposite side of Interstate 95 from the Airport. This makes it one of the most convenient ports from which to sail for those flying in. It is a 45 minute drive from the Miami International airport which has far more flights. Between these two and even West Palm Beach airport you have many choices for flying in/out to/from your cruise. That makes your trip a bit easier.

Port Everglades is the worlds largest cruise port with some weekends seeing as many as 50,000+ cruise passengers between Saturday and Sunday cruises. The port tends to handle the situation relatively well. Part of it being that the various cruise terminals are not one right next to the other so they have some room to spread everyone out.


Ft. Lauderdale as a Destination

There is plenty to do in Southeast Florida. First, for those willing to put in a few hours on the road, you can easily get to Orlando one of the world's top tourist destinations. But for those who want to stay close to the port there are plenty of water based and land based activities in and around Ft. Lauderdale. There is also great Caribbean and Cuban food in the area. It is worth spending a day or two before and/or after the cruise enjoying your time in the area. You can even just enjoy the beach around this area.

For Scuba divers there are plenty of dive operators and dive sites along the coast all the way down the Florida Keys. Sailing is another popular activity in the area. If you have a few days we are happy to help you plan a great getaway to Southeast Florida for your pre/post cruise time.
