All major cruise companies are getting ready for a comeback after the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, while one of South Florida’s busy cruise ports is getting a major makeover.

A state-of-the-art people mover is coming into shape inside the new Herron Garage at Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale, Florida), built to serve passengers in terminals 2 and 4. The USD 120 million project features solar panels and touchless parking management systems.

Port Everglades CEO Jonathan Daniels said:

“We’ve done everything we can to accelerate while business is down and times are a little bit slower. You don’t see the congestion. You don’t see people moving through.”

Cruising related revenues at Port Everglades are down about USD 60 million. It employs nearly 13000 people, ~6000 of whom have already lost their jobs. Of those 6000, ~4500 work in the cruise shipping industry.
