Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I was looking at hotels in fort lauderdale for the night before we leave, and hotels.com shows 2 different cruise line terminals. One is called Port Everglades and one is just called the cruise line terminal. Are there 2? If so, which one will the Zuiderdam leave from?
Port Everglades. There is only cruise ship Terminal in FLL, although there are different Births. As you drive into the port, each ship is listed with the Birth # where it is docked.
Hotels near the port are Rennaisance, Marriott Marina, Pier 66, & Embassy Suites. There's a Best Western but I hear it's a dump.
A lot of hotels are listed as "Airport". Some of these are also good and most have shuttle service to the port, although taxis are very reasonable. We always take a taxi as it's faster than waiting for everyone to board the shuttle van and the luggage to be loaded.
