Default Departure Port of Westerdam

Trying to figure out which port the Westerdam sails out of in Ft. Lauderdale? Either Port Everglades or Port Miami.

Trying to book transportation from hotel to port, and I guess I need to know this info.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Just curious ... You have a cruise booked and you don't know what port it leaves out of?

Actually I do know - "Fort Lauderdale"!!
But according to the limo people there are 2 different ports in Fort Lauderdale that cruise ships depart from, and they expect ME to know which one.

Do you know?
Thanks

Hi scoolmom101,

Yes, as Irish Shark says, it's Port Everglades.

Personally, I'd consider changing the limo service if they don't know where the ship ports ! This should be something they're very familiar with!

Port Everglades and the Port of Miami are two very different ports!

As far as I know there's only ONE port in Ft. Lauderdale. (There are different terminals, but a good limo service should know where you're going.)

Having lived in Fort Lauderdale for several years, I can only second what Fern said above.

I'd change limo services for sure!

The Port of Miami is in Miami.
Fort Lauderdale is not Miami.
Port Everglades is in Fort Lauderdale.

The Westerdam sails out of Port Everglades.
