Shrewd move on the part of BA.
The cruise market is ever increasing, so if there is the ability to put passengers direct into the Port, then I for one would opt for Ft. Lauderdale over MIA.

RSW doesn't have 3.5 million cruise passengers a year!
What surprises me is BA are only putting a 3-class 777 on this route. I'd have thought there'd be enough demand for F from the affluent cruise market. Maybe not; I suppose they can continue to go via MIA on the superior 747 or A380.
