The cruise terminal which is used by Disney Cruise Line at Port Canaveral, Florida will temporarily be closed for upgrades.
Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal to Close
Port Canaveral which is the world’s second-busiest cruise port will temporarily close down Terminal 8. The facility which is used by Disney Cruise Line and a popular sight at the port is set to close for five months from June 2020 according to Spectrum News.
The reason for the closure is apparently so some upgrades can be made including new ticket counters, an extension to drop off areas and refurbishment of the interior waiting area.
The good news is that the terminal closure won’t impact any sailings thanks to an agreement with the port. The cruise line will operate cruises out of Terminal 10 instead until the upgrades have been completed to Terminal 8.
The upgrades that will be made will help the cruise line cater better for the new cruise ships which are on the way. In 2022 the Disney Wish vessel will join the fleet, the first of three new Triton-class cruise ships which are being constructed by Meyer Werft in Germany. They will each be 144,000 gross tons with 1,250 passenger cabins.
At the moment Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy are based out of Port Canaveral and the cruise line currently has a total of four vessels.
