Cruise from Cape Canaveral
Despite Port Canaveral's hip-to-hip proximity to NASA's legacy of space exploration, you are not boldly going where no man (or woman) has gone before. That's because Port Canaveral is more popular than ever as a jumping off point for Bahamian and Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises. The reasons are clear: One, it's along Florida's Space Coast—the beaches are great in July and truly great for northerners who visit in February; two, it's an hour from Orlando—why not put together an amusement park/cruise-combo vacation?; and three, the Kennedy Space Center is nearby—and the visitors' center is open for wannabe astronauts of all ages. Dare we say, our cruise countdown starts now.
