It’s Time to Come to Port Canaveral
Today, Port Canaveral is ranked as the world’s 2nd busiest cruise port in multi-day embarkations. We’ve been in the top for years, but this isn’t yesterday’s Port Canaveral and now we’re aiming higher. Tomorrow’s Port Canaveral – a product of vision, tremendous effort and many man-hours – already is an in-demand port-of-call, a popular vacation destination in its own.
We invite you to be front and center and join us as we welcome the world to cruising’s
future and to its number one port of innovation.. Bring us your best; you’ll fine we’re ready to provide the perfect home.
The right facility, the right ship, the right match.
Today, we have a homeported fleet that typically sails above 100 percent capacity, both because our predominantly family market typically results in more passengers per stateroom and because we know how to respond to our market’s needs and wants with:
A relaxed beachside atmosphere
No-stress arrivals and departures
Beautiful modern facilities
A range of vacation options
A cruise-focused staff to support your operations
On Track for World Leadership
As the 2nd busiest multi-day cruise embarkation port in the world, naturally our sights are set on the number one spot. But we have more than dreams; we have factual reasons to feel confident of reaching this goal.
According to cruise consultants Bermello Ajamil & Partners, industry growth based on the ships now under construction will create a need for 10 additional terminals in Florida, and Port Canaveral is the only port with a real opportunity to service that demand. We have the necessary deep water channel, convenient access to drive-in and fly-in markets and, most of all, we are the only established cruise port in Florida with space for significant expansion.
In addition to having the space for growth, we have the financial strength to invest in our future. This is a Port with a strong, stable balance sheet that is not reliant upon government funding.
We already are building our next new terminal 1, with construction scheduled for completion in November, 2014. One day soon, our Port will rank number one in cruise passenger volume!
“Build It And They Will Come”
Timing is critical; the opportunity is great. We are right on course, building and planning new facilities to attract ships and visitors. In addition to preparing a cruise master plan and building new terminals, we are in the process of turning our waterfront Cove dining and retail area into an expanded, active visitor destination with a broad array of attractions for homeport and port-of-call passengers.
Recent/current developments include:
$105 Million New Cruise Terminal One
$48 Million Renovation - Cruise Terminal Five
$35 Million Renovation - Cruise Terminal Ten
$2 Million Renovation - Cruise Terminal Eight
