Default Security Issue at Port Everglades today

There are some errors in this story but it's got the basic gist of the information:

Quote:
Port Everglades was closed to vessel traffic as investigators inspected a suspicious package at a terminal for nearly two hours today.

A K-9 unit detected something suspicious in luggage of a passenger who was boarding a ship around 4:30 p.m.

The terminal had to be evacuated and vessels, including several cruise ships were unable to dock.

The package contained electronics that caused the dog to be alarmed.

The ship involved was the Carnival Splendour which was at berth 21. Sailing has been delayed because they had to stop loading baggage and evacuate the outside decks while they waited for the package to be cleared. They think the ship will now sail at 10pm.

Unlike what is reported in the story, no ships were delayed in docking because most come in in the morning and it happened this afternoon. Several cruise ships were delayed in leaving though because all traffic in and out of the port was stopped until the all clear came shortly after 5pm. The other cruiseships all departed at that time.

And in addition to the delayed sailaway, apparently 300 passengers on Splendour were denied boarding for not having their Brazilian visas. Hmm, didn't we just go through this with Mariner of the Seas?
