The Bimini SuperFast casino ship will no longer depart from Ft. Lauderdale. After just a month of weekday cruises from Port Everglades, the ship will now run all its cruises from PortMiami.
Ship officials announced the schedule change Friday, according to news reports.
Owned by gambling giant Genting Malaysia Berhad, the SuperFast began sailing day and night cruises out of Miami in July 2013. The daily sailings quickly changed to weekends only. Port Everglades trips began Oct. 14.
According to a story in the Sun-Sentinel, Port Everglades records showed that the 1,500-capacity ship averaged 536 passengers in its first week, then dropped to 160 for the week of Oct. 28-30.
