Port Everglades has announced plans to expand its current cruise terminal 4 which will begin this Spring.

Terminal 4 will be upgraded and improved to bring a modern new facility to the port. The modernization is set to be completed in time for the 2015 cruise season. Work will begin in mid March 2014 but it;s not just the terminal which will be improved. The Slip 2 will be extended by 250 feet which will make the total length 1,150 feet.
