Port Canaveral Cruises

Your space to sail away

Four million cruise passengers can't be wrong - each year, that's how many vacationers sail off into adventure aboard one of the beautiful cruise ships that glide in and out of Port Canaveral. Although these numbers mean that Port Canaveral is the second busiest cruise port in the world, you will be amazed that it is also one of the least congested cruise ports. Start here to begin your journey to the Bahamas, and the eastern and western Caribbean. And check out the variety: this is home port for ships from Carnival Cruise Lines, Disney Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean International.

Voted "Best North American Homeport"

This year, Port Canaveral has been named the “Best North American Homeport” in this year’s Cruise Critic U.S. Editors’ Picks Awards. This is the eighth year that Cruise Critic®, the world’s leading cruise reviews site and online cruise community, has held the recognition naming the best of the cruise industry in 25 categories, chosen by Cruise Critic’s international team of editors.

Cruising is great, and it's even better when you either start or complete your vacation by exploring the nearby beaches, nature and area attractions. The port itself has a multitude of great activities from fishing to kayaking to swimming to dining and entertainment.

Port Canaveral boasts a spectacular welcome center, Exploration Tower, that contains state-of-the-art interactive exhibits depicting the rich history, maritime resources and recreational offerings of the Space Coast. Observation decks on the top floors overlook the Port plus the exciting historical sites around it relating to early Spanish exploration, Revolutionary battles, the voyage of mankind into space...and more.
