Transportation

   Air Transportation

When making your own Air and Ground transportation arrangements please read below.

There are several advantages to coming in a day or two early:

  • Less stress in case your flights are delayed!
  • Gives you extra time in case of inclement weather.
  • Flights are more readily available during non week-end days into the cruise port city because the cruise lines reserves most of the air flights for their customers on the sail dates. (10/30 or 11/6).
  • Better chance of using your air miles
  • Flights are also less expensive during the week days.
  • Best of all it gives you a chance to start the party early at the host hotel.

There are 4 airports to choose from. Daytona(DAB), Melbourne(MLB) , Orlando/Sanford (SFB) and the most popular, Orlando(MCO).

Melborne is the closest, also generally the most expensive and most difficult to book. Orlando (MCO) is our airport of choice. It takes approx. 1.5 hours from plane touch down to get to the port. That’s 30 minutes through the airport and a 1 hour bus ride. Although Orlando is a big airport it is very organized. You don’t feel like you’re in a foreign country, people are very friendly, everything is where it is should be and it runs smoothly. Disney’s influence has definitely rubbed off on the Orlando airport and the bus service is efficient and comfortable.

If you are making your air arrangements to Port Canaveral on the same day we sail and return:

  • Arrival Flights on Oct 30st should arrive no later
    than 12:00pm
    . You must be on the ship by 2:00pm
  • Departure Flights on Nov 6th should depart no earlier than 11:30 am. Remember it takes about 45 minutes to travel from the Orlando airport to the ship, and it takes about 2 hours from the time you arrive at the airport, get through security, and actually get to your gate.
    *Should your return flight home from the cruise be scheduled for late afternoon Sunday, here is an option instead of sitting in the airport for hours. Book the Kennedy Space Center tour for the afternoon. They pick up you and your luggage up at the ship, you spend the day on a guided tour of Kennedy Space Center, eat lunch, and then they drop you off at the Orlando Airport that afternoon.
  • Remember to book your ground transportation. Shuttle services and car rental information are listed below (it's a 45 minute trip to the port from the Orlando airport).
