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.

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.

From the high seas to the high life, Florida's Space Coast has it all. State Road 528 (the Beachline) heads right into the Port, so chart your own course or contact one of the many options below. To entice you to stay with us before or after your cruise, several hotels offer Snooze & Cruise packages with free parking, special nightly rates, and even free shuttle transportation to and from the Port. We're all here to help ensure you get to your cruise, have a great time, explore more of our area and come back again.
