Port Everglades, Hollywood, FL

The Basics

Known for its miles of sandy shores and waterways that landed it the title of the “Venice of America,” Fort Lauderdale is a sunny destination popular with families thanks to attractions such as Butterfly World. Head straight to the beaches; take to the water for dolphin-spotting boat rides, cocktail cruises, or water sports lessons; or tour the city by boat, Segway, or on foot.

Shore excursions to glitzy Miami and the Everglades National Park are also popular options for first-time visitors or those short on time. With so much to see and do, staying a few days on either side of your cruise is recommended.
