Suggested tour on your own to Butterfly World to see the gardens and feed the lorikeets. We will not be doing this as a group but it looks amazing. Your transportation there and back will be on your own. It is about 1/2 hour from the port.
Butterfly World near Fort Lauderdale, Florida is a tropical adventure in the World’s Largest butterfly house and bird park.

See domestic, rare, and exotic birds in the Jewels of the Sky Aviary and Tropical Bird Aviary. Feed birds right out of your hand in the Lorikeet Encounter. Immerse yourself in a blooming garden paradise with one of the largest collections of flowering plants, vines, and trees in the world. Learn about butterfly conservation, research, and the efforts to save endangered butterflies by Butterfly World. Take gorgeous and memorable photos among the waterfalls, flowering plants, and roses. Sip coffee and relax among nature’s beauty at an outdoor cafe. Watch in wonder at the live bug zoo.
Butterfly World is located within the South side of Tradewinds Park but is a separate facility. Butterfly World is open 7 days a week, weather permitting as the exhibits are mostly outdoor attractions. Capture unique photos on days below 60 degrees Fahrenheit as most butterflies will not fly and will stay still, resting on leaves or plants. On sunny and warm days, the butterflies and birds will be active and flying for beautiful action photos. Butterfly World is a hidden gem attraction wonderful for guests of all ages.
Sounds amazing but expensive. Entrance fee is $32.50
If you decide to go, we will meet you on the ship later.
We have an informal get-together at the Good Spirits Bar at the Piazza tonight starting at 7:30. Come say hello to Carol and Gary and meet the group.
