Florida's Busiest Cruise Port

Welcome to Port Canaveral, Florida’s busiest cruise port and the worlds second busiest. In 2016 it was reported that there were 4.6 million passengers that arrived in Port Canaveral. There are a number of cruise ships that dock at this location such as, Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian, Carnival, Royal Caribbean and more.

It’s also home to the Kennedy Space Centre, Coca Beach, shopping, restaurants and more. This means when you’re here and have a few days before or after your cruise you can enjoy some sun or learn about space travel.

We recommend arriving a few days in advance so that you’re not feeling rushed to get to your cruise terminal. This is also helpful if you’re arriving from another time zone, giving yourself a day or two to adjust. At ACE Luxury we offer a private shuttle service to and from the airport to your hotel or cruise port. With our wide selection of luxury vehicles, we can accommodate most group sizes.

Private Luxury Ground Transportation

The closest airport to Port Canaveral is the Orlando International Airport (MCO). Located about 42 miles from Port Canaveral, this is a popular airport to fly into when you’re catching a cruise. There are a lot of fantastic hotels located close by if you’re planning on staying a few days.

Our selection of luxury vehicles means that we are able to accommodate most groups sizes, as we have mentioned previously. You can choose from SUVs, limousines, mini-buses, coach buses, sedans and more. If you require a children’s seat, please let us know in advance.

Typically our VIP shuttle service is between $35-$45 per person each way in one of our professional privately chauffeured luxury vehicles. The only question you need to ask yourself now is, why not have a private airport shuttle service? You don’t need to worry about driving in an unfamiliar city or having to share your service with another group. If you are arriving a few days in advance or staying a few days after your cruise, you’re going to need a place to stay.

Cruise Ships Expected To Return Mid-to-Late Summer

Cruise Ships Retuning 

This is fantastic news, we are so happy to report that cruise ships are expected to return mid-to-late summer. Port Canaveral CEO Captain John Murray said during a recent Commission Meeting, "it's starting, we're going to be starting sometime in mid-to-late summer."  Murray also highlighted the significant progress being made, including vacations for optimistic crew members and also working with health authorities and cruise lines. 

John Murray was optimistic on the return and reopening of the cruise line industry. There were some important comments on the CDC approval of port agreements. The approvals are a major part of the process when it comes to cruise ships being able to start again.

"All of the cruise lines are ready to get started, but first they’ve got to finalize port agreements, and then these have to be reviewed by the CDC. I will say that it came out in last night’s news that Royal Caribbean filed their application for Miami — ours has already been filed as well. But they did hear yesterday that the Miami application was approved by the CDC." 

Miami is Testing Cruises in June 

According to parts of the CDC return guidelines, cruise lines that don't plan to sail fully vaccinated, must sail test cruises with volunteer passengers, in order to practice the new protocols. However, if a cruise line wants to, or plans to sail with everyone full-vaccinated then they don't need to take this step of practicing the new protocols.

"Revenue passenger sailings will only occur after successful simulated sailings, that’s coming. First simulated sailing in Miami is scheduled for the latter part of June.” Murray said at the commission meeting. This is great news for cruise lines and for the industry as a whole. It's been a rough year and hearing this news that things will return to normal or a new normal is great news.

Cruising is the vacation of choice for those who are looking for an easy going trip but also an adventure, the trip of their dreams. Why is it that the cruise lifestyle cannot be shadowed in the hours leading up to your departure? Port Canaveral now has the answer.

Port Canaveral is now the proud home of a brand new state of the art cruise terminal, CT1. Passengers of Royal Caribbean Internationals Explorer of the Seas had the honor of being the first to cruise from the standout new facility.

Safety was one of the biggest concerns while constructing this new terminal. The pedestrians are conveniently located in a separate area from the commercial traffic, giving you ease and peace of mind.

Are you tired of waiting in long lines for your bags to be checked? Port Canaveral’s newest cruise port has conveyor belts from the parking lot to get them off your hands as soon as possible.

Ace Luxury is proud to be the Orlando and Port Canaveral area transportation of choice and we will bring you the same peace of mind and simplicity to your cruising experience.
