Cruise travel celebrated a banner year at Broward County’s Port Everglades for fiscal year 2011, which ran from Oct. 1, 2010 through September 30, 2011, according to the latest port figures.

Multi-day cruise passengers — those sailing on cruise ships that go out for more than one night — reached a record 3,664,103 in fiscal year 2011. That’s a 10.6 percent increase from 3,314,208 in fiscal year 2010.

Port Miami had over four million passengers in 2011, once again more than any other port in the world.

Disney is one of three new cruise lines coming to ‘PortMiami” (Port Miami? Port of Miami?) this year. The other two are Regent Seven Seas, and MSC Cruises.

And three of four new cruise ships that will be introduced in the United States in 2012 will come to Miami. The Celebrity Reflection, Carnival Breeze and Oceania Riviera are under construction in Europe.

Container cargo up 7 percent through Miami port

Published: Thursday, Feb. 16, 2012 – 7:53 am
MIAMI — Container cargo traffic through Port Miami rose 7 percent in the most recent fiscal year, solidifying its status as the top container port in Florida.

Officials said Wednesday that more than 900,000 container units moved through Port Miami during the 12 months that ended September 30. That’s 7 percent more than the previous year, when growth was up 5 percent.
Port Director Bill Johnson says cargo traffic should increase significantly once the expanded Panama Canal opens in 2014. Port Miami’s depth is scheduled to be increased in time to handle the larger ships that will move through the canal.

Johnson also says more than four million cruise passengers moved through Port Miami, more than any other port in the world. Three new cruise lines are being added to the port this year.

The big peak in Port Everglades tks to Oasis and Allure of the Seas. Too bad Miami cant get those big ships in. Missed advertising of the largest cruise ships in the world from the McArthur.
