Port Everglades begins $54-million terminal renovation

Florida’s Port Everglades is embarking on a $54-million renovation project to transform four existing cruise terminals into modern passenger facilities for more than 30 different Carnival Corporation cruise ships, as well as cruise ships from other lines. Cruise Terminals 2, 19, 21 and 26 will begin by the end of April, with completion dates ranging from mid-December through early June 2013. Cruise lines operating ships of various sizes and capacities will be able to process embarking and debarking passengers at the same time from each of the terminals. All terminals will have two passenger loading bridges, separate and larger baggage halls, improved ground transportation areas and new Florida-inspired artwork. (
