Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port

Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is the embarkation and/or disembarkation point for many Caribbean and Atlantic cruises. If you arrive in town a day or two early or stay around after your cruise, you can take advantage of the southern Florida location with shore excursions to Everglades National Park or glitzy Miami.

Or hang out in Fort Lauderdale itself, where you can explore the Venice-like string of canals and relax on the sandy beaches made famous in the spring break movies of the 1960s.

How to Get to Fort Lauderdale

The canal area and most popular stretch of beach, starting at Las Olas Boulevard, is a 4-mile (7-km) cab ride north from the cruise port, but because you’ll be getting on/off the ship with your luggage, chances are you’ll need transport to or from your hotel, first. Many of the chain hotels offer shuttle service to and from the port, and many cruise lines offer transport to and from the airports; check with your hotel or cruise line.

One Day in Fort Lauderdale

Start just inland from the beach on Las Olas Boulevard, where you can window-shop as you stroll past the upscale shops. From the Riverwalk area, full of shopping and dining options along the New River, you should be heading east, toward the coast. It’s about 2 miles (1.2 km), so when your feet get tired, hop in a water taxi for the trip, or rent a bike.

When you get to the canal district, veer off Las Olas in either direction to explore the quieter streets along the waterways. Continue making your way toward the beach, turning south to visit the beach park where you can take a much-deserved breather.

Spend the afternoon relaxing on the white-sand beach, or get more exercise with a walk or bike ride up the beachfront promenade.
