Default Port Everglades Question

I have never sailed out of Port Everglades and I've heard that this is a huge port. I'm sailing on the Mediterranea on Feb 26th and it sails out of a different pier everytime. How do I find out which pier to go to on embarkation day?

The piers are pretty well identified as to what ship at what pier.

Just look for the big YELLOW stack with the big C[/b] on it

If you are driving into the port you can ask the security folks and they will tell you the pier (berth) number of each ship. Kuki has the best advice. The ships are not hard to miss.

If you are flying in just tell the cab driver the ship you are taking or just Costa and he/she will take it from there.

Take care,
Mike (Who thinks Port Everglades is the easiest port to sail in and out of)

And also look at your Tickets. They should tell you which dock the ship will be loacated.

A bit of advice don't do the park and drive thing. There are two parking lots by port Everglades the further one is called Park and Drive while it's cheaper we were waiting with hords of people for the bus to drive us all 5 minutes away to the pier, mean while we could have been pool side enjoying lunch on the ship insted we got on ship just before it left. We were very disappointed with this. We could have paid a few dollars more and walked right on the boat.

I'll be taking a cab, so I won't have to worry about the parking hassle. Thanks for all the tips everybody, I really appreciate them.
