The US$18-million Slip 2 project, adjacent to the renovated Cruise Terminal 4, has lengthened the slip by 225 ft (68.6 m) from the original 900 ft (274 m).

The total 1,125 ft (343 m) slip length meets the needs of most modern cruise ships like Holland America’s Pinnacle-class, introduced at Port Everglades during 2017 cruise season via the U.S. debut of ms Konningsdam or Princess Cruises’ Royal-class, which also homeport at the port.

Carnival Cruise Line is the primary user of the extended berth.
