Port Everglades sets new world record

The exact tally isn't in, but a Port Everglades spokeswoman said Monday the port easily surpassed 52,000 cruise passengers on Saturday – setting a new one-day record for traffic.

One count put the number of passengers at 53,000, while another was just under, said Ellen Kennedy, manager of corporate and community relations. The ships' manifests at the end of the week will provide the definitive number.

The previous world record was set on Jan. 2, 2009, when 49,234 passengers sailed on 11 ships.

This year, it took only nine ships. One reason is Royal Caribbean International's Oasis of the Seas, the world's largest cruise ship, with its 6,003 guests, Kennedy said. The ship's 100 percent occupancy is 5,408 passengers, but filling third and fourth bunks in cabins boosted the total well beyond that.

The nine ships would stretch 8,233 feet, about 27 football fields.
 Several years ago, when the port first set a record, it took 15 ships and traffic was backed up to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Kennedy said. "Now, we did it with nine ships and it was a breeze."

One reason is a high amount of international passengers who are coming in on buses, she said. About half of the Oasis' passengers were international.

Road traffic generally was smooth, although 17th Street backed up a bit because of traffic for an auto show at the convention center at the port, she said.

One reason for the record this time is the Oasis, Royal Caribbean's Independence of the Seas and Princess Cruises' Ruby Princess were in port on the same day, Kennedy said.

Here's how the ships were berthed:

The Ruby Princess, Holland America's Eurodam and Independence of the Seas were moored along the Intracoastal Waterway, south of the main channel.

Carnival Cruise Line's Miracle, Costa Cruises' Atlantica and Oasis of the Seas were moored in a U-shape in the center of the port

Buddhika sets Guinness world record

Well-known television actor Buddhika Rambukwella set a Guinness World Record by driving a vehicle with his feet with his hands handcuffed for 903 kilometres.

He began on his record-breaking venture from Point Pedro on March 18 and ended at Tissamaharama. it had taken him 15 hours with a normal speed of 60.2 km and the highest speed of 125 km to get there. Dr Geethanjana Mendis of the Sri Lanka Sports Ministry Medical Unit served as the judge for the record.

Rambukwella earlier attempted to drive a vehicle in reverse with his feet from Kandy to Colombo last year and was thwarted after the traffic controller ruled that the law requires drivers to have both their hands on the steering wheel while driving. later he established the record at the Sugathadasa Stadium.

The same issue would have raised if Tharunyata Hetak President Namal Rajapaksa and Director General Ronnie Ibrahim had not spoken up. I am grateful to them for their support. Traffic director Indu Karunaratne, the three forces and IGP also backed me, he said adding that many youth are waiting to establish records and the authorities should encourage them.
