Port Everglades braced for busiest cruise day since pandemic

Odyssey of the Seas and Celebrity Edge will be two of the six cruise ships alongside at Port Everglades Nov. 6
Port Everglades will almost look like its pre-pandemic self on Nov. 6 with six cruise ships carrying passengers.

'Six of our eight cruise terminals will be in use, so it is not the port's record and the ships will not be filled to capacity, but it will be a sight to behold and is a solid sign of recovery,' Port Everglades Chief Executive and Port Director Jonathan Daniels said. 'We have gone from three cruise ships starting up in June and July, to more than 20 ships that will be sailing in November.'

Celebrity, Princess, Holland America, Royal Caribbean, Viking

Saturday's lineup includes Celebrity Cruises' Celebrity Edge and Celebrity Reflection, Princess Cruises' Emerald Princess, Holland America Line's Nieuw Amsterdam, Royal Caribbean International's Odyssey of the Seas and Viking's Viking Star, a maiden call.

Port Everglades was the first US seaport to resume passenger service, on June 26 with Celebrity Edge.

The cruise industry traditionally accounts for approximately 40% of the port's revenue.
