Cruises from Fort Lauderdale depart year-round.
Located 30 miles north of Miami, Fort Lauderdale is home to 165 miles of navigable waterways, lending credence to its description on the official city seal: “Venice of America.” Among these waterways is the New River, whose banks feature a popular linear park known as Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale. More aquatic recreation awaits along the area’s nearly two dozen miles of beaches. Fort Lauderdale Beach’s palm tree-lined brick promenade attracts strollers, joggers and cyclists. Las Olas Boulevard, the downtown thoroughfare, brims with boutiques, restaurants and art galleries. The Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Museum, Bonnet House Museum and Gardens, African-American Research Library and Cultural Center and many more delight history buffs and culture seekers. Shore excursions include daytrips south to Key West and west to the Everglades, where airboat rides reward keen observers with glimpses of alligators and other wildlife.
