Cruise ships over 1,100 feet long can now dock at Port Everglades Cruise Terminal 4 without blocking boat traffic in the intracoastal waterway. The $18-million pier project lengthened the cruise pier by 225 feet from the original 900 feet.
Making Room for More Large Cruise Ships
Port Everglades said, “The total 1,125-foot slip length meets the needs of most of today’s modern cruise ships such as Holland America Line’s Pinnacle-class ships, which were introduced at Port Everglades during the 2017 cruise season with the U.S. debut of the ms Konningsdam or Princess Cruises’ Royal-class ships, which also homeport at Port Everglades. Carnival is currently the primary user of the newly extended berth.”
Port Everglades is consistently ranked as one of the three busiest cruise ports in the world with more than 3.8 million passengers in fiscal year 2016. Ten cruise lines, one ferry service and more than 40 cruise ships sail from the South Florida seaport including: Balearia’s Bahamas Express (ferry), Carnival, Celebrity Cruises, Costa Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Cunard Line, Holland America Line, Pearl Seas Cruises, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean International, and Silversea Cruises.
