Terminal 25 at Port Everglades will be rebranded and
redesigned by Celebrity Cruises, which will use it as its home for the new
Celebrity Edge when it arrives in November.
The terminal will be known at T25 and will have a 1,463-square-foot
GKD Mediamesh electronic LED sign that will wrap the terminal's exterior,
identifying it as Celebrity's.
T25 features cutting-edge technology and a sleek design,
which the line helped create. It will have both a VIP lounge and a crew lounge,
an industry first.
"This is the largest financial investment that Port
Everglades has made in a cruise terminal, and we fully anticipate that Terminal
25's iconic design will be a showcase for Broward County and Celebrity Cruises,"
said Broward County Mayor Beam Furr.
"We are replacing two smaller and outdated cruise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," added Port Everglades CEO Steven Cernak.
The redesigned terminal by architects Bermello Ajamil &
Partners will be open to other cruise lines when Celebrity is not using it. It
is expected to debut in late October.
