Originally a fort built by the U.S. Army in 1838, during the Second Seminole War, Ft. Lauderdale has little left of its warlike past. Instead the city welcomes visitors with broad beaches and an easy pace of life, plus convenient air and water connections that make the city a perfect place to begin or end a cruise.  The cruise departs at 6pm, and everyone must be onboard by 4:30, so for those not taking our optional one night pre cruise hotel package, we suggest booking a flight arriving by noon today, to allow for potential flight delays.  The cruise line offers shuttle bus transport from the FTL airport to the ship which is a mere 20 minutes away.

One reef, aptly called the Wall, is particularly spectacular; it drops 7,000 feet-straight down. Between the shore and the reef, the water is only waist deep, providing a perfect place for beginning snorkelers to get their feet wet.  Enjoy our optional group excursion to explore this beautiful island today.
