Snooze ’n Cruise at Port Canaveral

Located on Florida’s Space Coast, Port Canaveral is more than just a port of call. Found just 45 minutes from the Orlando attractions, the port is the perfect place to relax or seek adventure before you hit the high seas or even after you’ve returned from your ocean voyage.

The area is filled with entertainment and attractions for the whole family and it is the perfect place to extend your vacation whether you’re about to step on — or off — the ship. And with some of the best seafood restaurants on the coast, exciting attractions and fun activities to do, you’d be missing out if you came to the port solely to hop on board your ship. 

Your Cruise Vacation Starts with…

Get a glimpse of space with a day trip to the Kennedy Space Center and get an “up close” look at Space Shuttle Atlantis, or if you’re lucky, you might be able to catch a real-time rocket launch. 

You can even stop by Ron Jon Surf Shop and take surf lessons at Cocoa Beach, the East Coast surfing capital and when you get hungry from all the surfing and space exploring you can grab a bite at any of the amazing restaurants at Port Canaveral at Port Canaveral. 

There’s plenty to do, so make sure to arrive one or two days prior to your cruise departure date to relax and enjoy. Or, spend a few post-cruise days unwinding before you head home or head off to Orlando attractions.
