    The Port of Fort Lauderdale

    The port of Fort Lauderdale

     

    Port Everglades is located on the southern part of Fort Lauderdale. It covers a huge area and thus we do not recommend walking from the ship to Fort Lauderdale. 

    Getting to and from the ship is most conveniently done by taxi. Fort Lauderdale, being one of the worlds largest cruise ports, is well experienced to cater to cruise passengers and its infrastructure is of high quality.

    Most hotels are located on the A1A (main road in Fort Lauderdale). Depending the exact location a taxi ride can take up to 10-15 minutes and will cost about 15-20 USD. 

    A taxi ride to the airport will cost about 20-25 USD depending on the size of your group, amount of luggage and the pier where you ship docked. 


    Last minute things before you cruise

    If you want to buy some snacks, personal care items, news papers, magazines or any other small shopping items, there is a Wallgreens located at the corner of A1A and the enterance to Port Everglades. Across from hotel Renaissance and Hilton.

    Airport

     

    Fort Lauderdale has its own airport (FLL) located about 15 minutes drive from Port Everglades. A taxi will cost anywhere between 15-25 USD.

    Fort Lauderdale airport has regular flights by most major US airlines to most larger cities in the US.

    Beaches

    Fort Lauderdale is located in Southern Florida. This part of the USA is characterized by long strips of beautiful coast line. The beaches, 7 miles for only Fort Lauderdale, are generally wide and the sand is fine. These beaches are very popular all year around but are busiest during spring break and the summer holidays. 

    Fort Lauderdale beach is right on the promenade, A1A and by an array of shops, restaurants and sidewalk cafes.  

    Internet

    WiFi signal

    Free wifi signals for internet can be found throughout the city. The most popular one would be in Satrbucks venues. Hotels and restaurants usually also have access points but they usually require you to be a guest.

    The closest Starbucks to Port Everglades is located on SE 17th street. When you leave Port Everglades heading to the A1A, turn left at the traffic lights and you will find Starbucks on the right hand side after about 500 meters.
