Port Everglades debuts online Cruise Guide, mobile app with searchable cruise schedules
Port Everglades introduced an online version of its annual Cruise Guide and a mobile application that allows users to search for cruise schedules and detailed information such as arrival/departure times and terminals. There's even a GPS guide to the terminals and parking facilities.

The 2015 Cruise Guide is now online at It features 120 pages of descriptions and photographs for each of the 41 ships sailing from the South Florida port. Also provided are travel tips such as transportation information, embarkation and disembarkation procedures, security regulations, maps and directions, and pre- and post-cruise vacation ideas in Greater Fort Lauderdale.

The print version of the 2015 Port Everglades Cruise Guide will be available in November at the Broward County Governmental Center, select Broward County Library locations, chambers of commerce in Dania Beach, Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale, as well as area hotels and the Port Everglades Administration building located at 1850 Eller Drive, Fort Lauderdale.

The free CruiseSchedule Port Everglades app for mobile devices using Apple's iOS operating system provides detailed information on all cruise lines and their ships sailing from the port. Features include fully searchable schedules, arrival/departure times with associated cruise terminal, complete itineraries listing each ship’s ports of call, scroll and zoom itinerary route maps for each ship, deck plans and ship specifications and contact information for cruise lines, customs and parking.

A port map shows cruise terminals and parking areas, and turn-by-turn GPS navigation guides users to terminals and parking.

The app is available from the iTunes Store. Port Everglades said an application for mobile devices supported by other operating platforms, such as Android and Windows, may become available at a later date based on demand.
