Getting to CoderCruise is a relatively straightforward affair.  Below you will find details on hotel, air travel, and the cruise terminal itself.  If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.



The cruise doesn’t depart the port until 4:00 pm, but you will have an assigned check-in time as early as 12:30 pm. More importantly, you don’t want to be late.  The ship won’t wait for you.  So unless you live within a couple of hours from Port Everglades, it makes sense to arrive no later than Wednesday, and stay the night.

To help you accomplish this, we have negotiated a courtesy block with Four Points by Sheraton, Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port. The courtesy block is active from 8/27 through 8/29 and on 9/3. The negotiated rate is $99+tax per night. Reservations for the courtesy block will be taken until July 27, 2018.

To make a reservation, please call 1-800-760-0000 ext. 0. Be sure to ask for the “Coder Cruise Pre-Cruise OR Post-Cruise” block.


Arriving by Air

While there are a number of airports in Florida, you’ll want to arrive at the Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport (FLL). It is (literally) right next to the cruise port as well as the hotel we’ve chosen and the hotel offers a free airport shuttle.



Getting to the Cruise Terminal

The Port Everglades cruise terminal website provides detailed information about the terminal for passengers.  However, the necessary information that you need to know is:

If driving…
Whether you are driving in that morning or drove to the hotel beforehand, the cruise terminal offers plentiful secure parking for the duration of your cruise. The cost is just $15/day for the length of your cruise.
If coming from the hotel…
The hotel offers a shuttle to the cruise terminal for $6 per person and we highly suggest that you use it for convenience! Upon our return, you can take the shuttle back to the hotel or directly to the airport for $10 per person.
If flying in that morning…
While we highly recommend that you don’t do this, if you arrive the morning of the cruise and need to get directly to the ship, then you can take a Taxi for ~$17, or an Uber for ~$11 to get to the port.
