Port Everglades’ Cruise Terminal 25 took less than two years to complete, but you can watch the building’s transformation in just two minutes — in time for the arrival of Celebrity Cruises Edge.
Designed to leave guests in awe, Celebrity Cruises celebrates another milestone with the unveiling of the line’s first ever brand-designed cruise terminal, Terminal 25 (T25), located at Port Everglades in Hollywood, Fla.
Brought to life in collaboration with Broward County’s Port Everglades and seasoned architectural firm, Bermello Ajamil & Partners, Inc., T25 melds a gorgeous, warm design with unique technology, such as Frictionless Arrival, which will make the check-in process absolutely seamless, and an interactive light wall art installation. T25 will also offer Suite Class guests a singular experience along the path to The Retreat, with an exclusive lounge, elevator lobbies, screening areas and even a private rooftop terrace.
“We are replacing two smaller and outdated cruise terminals with an innovative facility that is inspired by the sleek, futuristic design of Celebrity Edge and can accommodate some of the world’s largest cruise ships,” said Port Everglades Chief Executive and Port Director Steven Cernak. “The time was right to build a new Terminal 25 that uses cutting-edge technology, such as electronic media-mesh for innovative messaging, to attract contemporary travelers who want to explore the world.”
T25 will be the new home to many Celebrity ships during their winter deployment, including Celebrity Edge, Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Reflection and Celebrity Silhouette. Along with these ships, the terminal will be LEED certified and able to accommodate up to a 1,150-foot-long ship. When Celebrity is not using T25 the facility will be open to other cruise lines.
