Port Ever­glades up­graded

Cruise Weekly - - NEWS -

PORT Ever­glades Cruise Ter­mi­nal 2 has emerged from a multi-mil­lion dol­lar re­design and up­grade un­der­taken by Car­ni­val Cor­po­ra­tion.

The ter­mi­nal is ex­clu­sively used by the cor­po­ra­tion’s Princess Cruises brand and has been de­signed to stream­line departure and pro­vide in­ter­ac­tive experience­s, a movie the­atre and more com­fort­able pre-board­ing ar­eas.

The space has been fit­ted with Car­ni­val Cor­po­ra­tion’s xIoT (Ex­pe­ri­en­tial In­ter­net of Things) net­work, which is ac­ti­vated by the Ocean Medal­lion.

This al­lows guests sail­ing on Medal­lion Class ships to take ad­van­tage of ex­pe­dited board­ing and a more per­son­alised ar­rival ex­pe­ri­ence.

Trav­ellers will be able to in­ter­act with their Ocean Ta­ga­long dig­i­tal com­pan­ions on an LED screen in the Ocean Por­tal area, which guests will en­ter after clear­ing the se­cu­rity and check-in area.

Ocean Ta­ga­longs can be cre­ated and per­son­alised us­ing the So­cialOcean app and will ap­pear on the Ocean Por­tal screen as the avatars of guests in the im­me­di­ate area.

The ter­mi­nal has been fit­ted with Medal­lionNet wi-fi, al­low­ing pas­sen­gers to play the com­pany’s mo­bile games.
