As we work with our cruise partners to accommodate their berthing needs, there are currently six cruise ships at lay berth at Port Canaveral with a seventh ship anchored off-shore.
Generally speaking, the cruise ships leave from Port Canaveral beginning about 4pm. If’ you’re heading out to Jetty Park, it’s about a 15-20 minute walk from the parking lot to the end of the pier.
What time do cruise ships leave port?
Most cruise ships in the Bahamas or Caribbean sail away at 4:00 p.m. or 5:00 p.m., but ships departing from ports like San Juan, Puerto Rico or those in the Mediterranean may not leave until 8:00 p.m. or later.
Disney’s bus transfers to and from the port are convenient, but also pretty expensive, especially for a family: In Florida, Disney offers bus transfers between any of the Walt Disney World resort hotels and Port Canaveral, or between the Orlando (MCO) airport or the Hyatt MCO and Port Canaveral.
What is the cheapest month to take a Disney cruise?
Generally speaking, the least expensive time to take a Disney cruise is in mid- to late January, early February or early May. Some weeks in March and April also have lower-than-average prices. Later in the year, September and early November and early December are good options.
Do you need a passport to go on a cruise?
Do I need a passport? We recommend that everyone taking a cruise from the United States have a passport book. Though some “closed-loop” cruises may not require a U.S. passport, we recommend bringing yours in case of an emergency, such as an unexpected medical air evacuation or the ship docking at an alternate port.
