Come a little earlier, stay a little longer. Daily departures makes Greater Fort Lauderdale a port of call all its own. Even if you have just a few hours to spare, you'll find that's all you need to squeeze in a little sunny on your cruise vacation from Port Everglades.
It's a common mix-up for first-timers, but the difference is cruise ship vs. airboat. Port Everglades, located just two miles from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, and less than one mile from Fort Lauderdale and Dania Beach, is cruising with a sense of ease. The exotic Florida Everglades, are approximately 24 miles to the west, and are a must-see before or after your cruise. Take an exhilarating airboat ride at Sawgrass Recreation Park, Billie Swamp Safari or Everglades Holiday Park to name a few.
