Cruise Travel to Port Canaveral

Port Canaveral sees more than 4.6 million passengers passing through its terminals annually. The port expects its business to grow, predicting for instance that it will soon host twice the number of one-day ship visits it did in 2009, for a total of 126.

The port has six cruise terminals and is home to ships from Carnival Cruise Lines, Disney Cruise Line, and Royal Caribbean International. Other cruise lines, such as Holland America and Norwegian Cruise Line, operate seasonally. The port serves as the embarkation point for three-, four-, and seven-day cruises to the Bahamas, Key West, Mexico, Jamaica, and the Virgin Islands.

In Brevard County, Port Canaveral is on State Road (S.R.) 528, also known as the Beeline Expressway, which runs straight to Orlando, which has the nearest airport. To drive to Port Canaveral from there, take the north exit out of the airport, staying to the right, to S.R. 528 (Beeline Expressway) East. Take S.R. 528 directly to Port Canaveral; it's about a 45-minute drive.
