Steven Cernak, Chief Executive and Port Director of Port Everglades, said that the record was the perfect way to kick off the first Seatrade Cruise Global convention that is being held in Ft. Lauderdale this year. The convention is taking a break from being held in Miami, Florida while the convention center there is being renovated.
Located in the second largest county in Florida, Broward County’s Port Everglades is consistently ranked as one of the three busiest cruise ports in the world. The Port’s wide-ranging fleet of cruise ships provides guests with an array of cruise vacation choices from sunny Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood and Dania Beach.
