    Celebrity Cruises to Build First Brand-Designed Cruise Terminal at Port Everglades

    Celebrity Cruises this week released designed for its new cruise terminal at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the line’s first brand-designed terminal.

    The terminal’s concept is built around hosting Celebrity Edge, the brand’s newest ship that will debut later this year. It is scheduled to open in October 2018, just a few weeks before Edge starts sailing.

    Edge includes a number of innovations for Celebrity, both in technology and in hardware, including the debut of the line’s new Magic Carpet, a traveling platform the size of a tennis court hanging off the side of the ship that will offer a full bar, a live music area, meeting space, and an open-air dining venue.

    Celebrity President and CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said in a statement that the cruise operator wanted to “design a terminal that perfectly complemented the ship and matched its one-of-a-kind experience” and that its renovation of the existing Terminal 25 at Port Everglades will do just that.

    "With cutting-edge technology, in service of a gorgeous design, T25 is that perfect new home,” she added.

    The terminal, which will take over two existing terminals at Port Everglades, will offer Edge guests Frictionless Arrival, which the line says will speed up the check-in process. It will also boast an interactive light wall art installation; a dedicated long, lobby, and a rooftop terrace for suite guests; and a metal fabric façade called Mediamesh.

    In addition to Celebrity Edge, Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Reflection, and Celebrity Silhouette will all homeport at Terminal 25 during their winter deployment.

    "...debut of the line’s new Magic Carpet, a traveling platform the size of a tennis court hanging off the side of the ship..."

    These are not things that belong on ships, guests are on very very small ships in relation to very very large oceans. Stop trying to make ships into something they are not. What is it going to take to get the cruise lines to understand this? Do a thousand, two thousands or  more people need to die for the cruise lines to get the message? Put one of these mega ships in a class 4 or 5 hurricane, and the ship is in trouble. Even it it makes it through the hurricane, it would result in major injuries and or death.  The cruise Industry really needs to wake up and go back to building ships with the first goal of Safety Safety Safety. 

    These new mega ships are great until people start dying.
