PORT EVERGLADES, Fla. - The Bimini SuperFast cruise will begin offering a weekday schedule disembarking from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale beginning Oct. 14.

This comes as Resorts World Bimini announced that the first phase of the Port at Resorts World Bimini is complete and that passengers will begin disembarking directly onto the island beginning Sept. 18.

"The completion of the Port at Resorts World Bimini further enhances our commitment to the island, offering guests more time in port and uninterrupted cruise service during the winter months," said Dana Leibovitz, president of Resorts World Bimini.

Travelers will now get to enjoy six hours on the island of Bimini, whether they depart on the day-cruise from PortMiami on the weekend or Port Everglades on weekdays.

The round-trip cruises will depart Port Everglades each Tuesday-Thursday at 9 a.m. and will return at 9 p.m. The cruises will depart PortMiami Friday-Sunday at the same times.
