At one point or another, everyone probably wishes they could stop everything, hop on a cruise and sail away to a sandy beach somewhere.

More than likely, you’re working way too hard. And sometimes a little leisure is exactly what you need to help become more productive. There’s no better way to give your mind and body the R&R it needs than by hitting the high seas on a luxurious cruise and coming ashore on the beaches of the Bahamas or Caribbean.  

2. You get a port that is more than just a port.

When you sail out of Port Canaveral you don’t just get a port, you get Florida’s Space Coast – an area full of exciting things to do. By coming to Port Canaveral pre-cruise, you can explore historic downtowns, wildlife refuges and experience plenty of great attractions.

3. There’s a cruise for every kind of traveler.

Port Canaveral is the homeport of world renowned cruise line companies: Carnival, Disney, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Lines. Each of these cruise lines have something to offer for everyone. Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway or a family vacation, you can plan the perfect cruise to fit your needs. 

4. It’s easy to plan.

Planning a vacation can be stressful, but you can forget the stress of planning when you book your Port Canaveral cruise. By staying on Florida’s Space Coast before you set sail, you won’t have to rush to get to the Port since you’ll already be nearby. Plus, hotels in the area offer Snooze & Cruise packages that will take care of all your transportation to and from the port or to and from the airport. 

5. Lots of Food.

Cruise ships are known for their first-class dining with limitless options and ‘round-the-clock buffets. But not only can you dine in style onboard your cruise, Port Canaveral offers plenty of excellent local restaurants to choose from to grab a bite before – or after – your cruise.

6. You can experience space and sea.

Explore the Kennedy Space Center before or after you leave for your cruise and see rockets, Space Shuttle Atlantis, meet astronauts, and experience a spaceflight simulator. If you come to Florida’s Space Coast just to hop on board your ship, you’d be missing an out-of-this-world experience. 

7. It’s good for you.

Besides the on-board fitness activities, going on a cruise is good for your health. Breathing in fresh ocean air, soaking up the sun, and swimming in the pool or ocean can do wonders for your body. Breathing fresh air is good for your lungs, sunshine stimulates your body’s production of Vitamin D, and swimming is a great workout!

8. You’re close to Orlando theme parks

Only 45 minutes away from Port Canaveral, you’ll find the theme park capital of the world – Orlando, Florida. So, before you hit the high seas you can hit the theme parks to add even more thrill to your trip. Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld are all a short distance away from the Port. 

9. You can see the sights

Rather than taking a flight to one place, cruises allows you to visit multiple ports. You can explore different cities and towns and get a taste of different cultures. Not to mention you can explore all to see in Port Canaveral and along Florida’s Space Coast. Even if you only take one cruise, you’ll return home feeling like seasoned traveler. 

10. You deserve it

This is what it ultimately comes down to: you deserve to indulge yourself, make memories with your family, and experience the luxury of cruising.

So, get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure because it’s not too late to book a cruise for this spring!
