Carnival Corporation has completed a large-scale, multimillion-dollar redesign and upgrade of Cruise Terminal 2 at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale.

The terminal, which is used by Carnival’s Princess Cruises brand, features a “more streamlined departure design” along with a new giant LED screen, a movie theater and “more comfortable” boarding areas.

It also includes Carnival’s new MedallionNet Wi-Fi service featuring ultra-fast speeds.

“When our guests arrive at the terminal excited about their cruise, that’s a great opportunity for us to begin immersing them in a more personalized and hassle-free vacation experience,” said John Padgett, chief experience and innovation officer for Carnival Corporation. “We have completely transformed the arrival so that our guests can board at a pace that’s more relaxed and convenient for them. Our focus is on the entire guest experience with a special emphasis on making the arrival experience exceptional. From guests’ homes through the cruise terminal and to their stateroom, every guest engagement is intended to maximize their vacation experience.”

The 141,000-ton Regal Princess will be the first ship to depart the newly redesigned terminal.
