The #1 Website for Cruises from Miami, Port Canaveral, Tampa and More

Port Canaveral Cruise Ships

Port Canaveral serves fewer cruise lines than the larger ports in Miami and Port Everglades. Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Disney serve as the resident cruise lines, each sailing multiple ships. In total, roughly a dozen ships call the port home, and the roster changes regularly.

One thing is clear. If you’re sailing from the port, you’re likely going to be on a very large ship. Five of the ships break the 1,000 foot mark in length. (Better bring your walking shoes!)
