One of my favorite ports to sail on a Royal Caribbean ship is Port Canaveral in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Royal Caribbean has had a presence here for years and is adding new ships as well. If you're looking to get to Port Canaveral (the cruise ship terminal in Cape Canaveral), here's a quick guide to getting there easily. Royal Caribbean operates two cruise ships out of Port Canaveral currently, Enchantment of the Seas and Freedom of the Seas, with Explorer of the Seas slated to join them in November 2014.

Driving to Port Canaveral

Driving yourself to Port Canaveral is pretty simple and one of the easier ports to get to from anywhere in Florida. It's located on the east coast of Florida. It is worth mentioning most of our directions take you on S.R. 528 (Beachline Expressway), which is a toll road. We recommend having exact change to expedite the process if you do not have a SunPass.

  • Take the North Exit from the Airport, staying to the right, to S.R. 528 (Beachline Expressway) East.
  • Take S.R. 528 directly to Port Canaveral.
  • From there, follow the directional signs for your designated ship's pier terminal.

From Daytona Beach'sAirport (DAB) and points north

  • Take I-95 south to S.R. 528 East (Beachline Expressway).
  • From there, follow the directional signs for your designated ship's pier terminal.

  • Take I-95 north toS.R. 528 East (Beachline Expressway).
  • From there, follow the directional signs for your designated ship's pier terminal.
