Port Canaveral is truly a unique place of departure and is Florida’s fastest growing cruise port. Located just 45 miles east  of Orlando, visitors can have the ultimate Florida vacation by combining the Orlando theme parks and Space Coast attractions such as Kennedy Space Center with a cruise from Port  Canaveral for one trip, two vacations and twice the fun!  Millions of visitors have discovered how easy and pleasant it is to cruise from Orlando’s Fun Port. Our uncongested highways feature digital signage along State Road 528 and -95. From our convenient airports-- Orlando International, Orlando Sanford and Melbourne International-- arriving at Port Canaveral is simple, easy and stress free.

Our cruise terminals are new, innovative and ultra modern, designed to enhance your overall cruise experience from the moment you enter our terminals until you board your luxury cruise ship.  Enjoy a cruise to the Bahamas, Eastern, Western and Southern Caribbean and other tropical destinations or even  a half-day gaming cruise.  Carnival Cruise Lines, Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean International offer a variety of cruises from 3-,4-,5-,7-,8 and 9-day cruises. You also can sail twice daily on five-hour junkets to nowhere on Victory Casino Cruises.

Port Canaveral has more recreational facilities than all other Florida Ports combined, including our new Exploration Tower and Cove harbor-side dining and retail area.  Plans are under way for a new redevelopment of this area that will include 250,000-square feet of retail, restaurants and an upscale hotel, as well as outdoor amphitheater. You also can enjoy Port Canaveral’s Jetty Park, which is a 5-acre ocean front beach complete with campground, fishing pier, boat ramps, picnic areas and new refreshment and food concession pavilion.  Two other Parks also are located at the Port-- Freddie Patrick and Ports End--which are complete with boat ramps, picnic facilities and viewing areas for manatees and wildlife native to central Florida.

Already the world’s most popular cruise port, current plans will double capacity in the next few years. Visit Port Canaveral and enjoy the future of cruising now!
