COVID-19 cruise update

Coronavirus or COVID-19Port Everglades continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation to provide the maritime community,  Broward County residents and visitors with the most up-to-date information as it becomes available. 

At this time, we are working with our cruise line partners to accommodate their berthing needs in order to resupply and refuel their vessels.

The Port’s priority is the safety and well-being of our staff and others using the cruise terminals:

  • Cruise Terminals are being cleaned before and after each ship concludes it’s resupply
  • Port Everglades has taken extra precautions by designating at least one terminal worker in each terminal to wipe down and disinfect all surface areas each time a terminal is used. This includes sanitizing escalator handrails, elevator buttons, counter surfaces, seating, etc. Port Everglades terminal workers are cleaning and disinfecting using EPA coronavirus fighting cleaning products
  • Cruise lines have arranged to also use an electrostatic disinfectant sprayer with patented technology to disinfect our cruise terminals
  • View the Port Everglades COVID-19 Update page


Port Everglades, located in Greater Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, Florida, is ranked third among cruise ports worldwide and has more homeported cruise ships than any other port. Check out our 2020 Cruise Guide to learn more about cruising from Port Everglades.
