Port Everglades Clocks Record 54,700 Cruise Passengers In Single Day

portevergladespassengerrecord2Port Everglades on Sunday clocked a new record for the most cruise passengers in a single day, according to port officials.

Preliminary estimates show more than 54,700 passengers sailed in and out of the Broward County seaport, surpassing the previous single-day record of 53,485 on Dec. 20.

Eight cruise ships were docked at the seaport Sunday: Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Conquest, Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Silhouette, Holland America Line’s Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam, Princess Cruises’ Regal Princess and Royal Princess, and Royal Caribbean International’s Allure of the Seas and Navigator of the Seas.

The same cruise ships helped set the last record in December, but they carried more families this time because of spring break vacations.
