USA: Port Everglades Expansion Set for Spring
Port Everglades will begin the renovation for its sixth cruise terminal in five years this spring as Terminal 4 is modernized through an expansion and reconfiguration effort that will provide the cruise line industry with a modern dual flow facility just in time for the 2014/2015 cruise season.
In addition, the adjacent Slip 2 will be extended by 250 feet for a total 1,150 feet of berth length to accommodate larger cruise ships calling at Port Everglades.
The Slip 2 extension is slated for completion by the end of 2016.
The terminal renovations will begin in mid-March and be completed by November 2014 in time for the start of the next cruise season.
“This latest expansion effort is a direct result of the cruise industry’s movement towards building larger ships,” said Port Everglades Chief Executive & Port Director Steven Cernak.
“We are continuously reinvesting in our cruise facilities to keep them fresh, convenient and efficient for the cruise lines and their guests.”
