Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale FL Terminal Information
Last updated on February 3rd, 2020 at 02:24 pm
Port Everglades is located at 1850 Eller Drive, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33316. Easy to access via car, taxi, bus, rail, and ship, the port is also conveniently located next to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), making it very convenient to fly in to Fort Lauderdale and get right on a cruise. It is a large and busy cruise port, but there are lots of signs to help you on your way.
Port Everglades cruise terminal has three entrances:
– 17th Street Causeway, located at Eisenhower Boulevard
– State Road 84, located just off of US 1 (Spangler Blvd)
– I-595 East (Eller Drive)
There is a security checkpoint at each entrance where you will need to show your ID and cruise tickets. Check the large digital signs as you enter the port to see which terminal at which your ship is docked.

Port Everglades Embarkation Tips:
– If coming from FLL, allow 45 mins – 1 hour to get your luggage, find transportation, traffic to the port and clearing the security checkpoint inside the port entrance
– There are large digital signs at each entrance which will show you which terminal your ship is docked at
– Check-in typically begins around 11am, but most cruise lines will give you a check-in time. While most people like to get aboard the ship as early as possible, this makes for very, very long lines, especially when boarding a large ship.
– It is recommended that luggage is dropped off at the terminal prior to parking
– Passengers with Special Needs – before you go and stand in the long line with everyone else, ask a uniformed staff person if there is a line for those who are unable to stand for long periods of time or walk long distances. There is usually an expedited line, and staff with wheelchairs if assistance is needed getting from the terminal to the ship. On our last cruise from Fort Lauderdale (2019), we were travelling with a wheelchair, and as soon as we stepped into the cruise terminal, a porter came right over to push the chair, and instead of waiting in a line, an employee came to us with an iPad and checked us in, before the porter wheeled us onto the ship. From shuttle to ship, the whole process took about 10 minutes.
