Port Canaveral Will Have a Busy End to 2019
Port Canaveral in Florida which is the world’s second-busiest cruise port will have 38 port of calls from 38 cruise ships from now until December 31.
It will be a busy end to the year with vessels from seven different cruise lines including AIDA Cruises, TUI Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, Holland America Line, Saga Cruises and Disney Cruise Line.
Port CEO Capt. John Murray said:
“Port Canaveral is an enticing port-of-call for some of the world’s most prestigious cruise lines, and that means more visitors, more tourism dollars, and more attention focused on the Port and the Space Coast.”
“We are pleased to welcome these magnificent cruise ships and their guests, and we hope to generate even more port-of-call visits in the coming years.”
One of the biggest highlights recently was the inaugural call of TUI Cruises’ Mein Schiff I which brought over 2,800 guests.
