The six cruise ships from five different cruise lines that will depart on cruises today from Port Everglades are:

Celebrity Edge
Celebrity Reflection
Emerald Princess
Nieuw Amsterdam
Odyssey of the Seas
Viking Star

“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,” said Port Everglades Chief Executive and Port Director Jonathan Daniels. “We have gone from three cruise ships starting up in June and July, to more than 20 ships that will be sailing in November.”

Port Everglades was the first U.S. port to resume cruise service, on June 26, 2021, with  Celebrity Edge, after the cruise industry was paused due the COVID-19 pandemic.

The cruise industry traditionally accounts for approximately 40 percent of Port Everglades’ revenue.
