Port Canaveral Wins the Award for Best Cruise Port
Here at MickeyBlog, we are such huge fans of Disney Cruise Line sailings coming in and out of Port Canaveral and from the looks of it, we aren’t the only ones! Port Canaveral was just named “Best Cruise Port” in Global Traveler magazine’s annual reader’s survey and was also awarded the 2019 Leisure Lifestyle Award.
The Central Florida port currently serves as the home port for Disney Cruise Line (for Bahamian, Eastern Caribbean and Western Caribbean sailings), Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian Cruise Lines ships as well as a port-of-call stop.
Port Canaveral Port Director and CEO Capt. John Murray had this to say about the prestigious award, ” “We strive to provide our cruise partners and their valued guests with the best possible cruise port experience. On behalf of our employees, and this community, Port Canaveral is proud to receive this prestigious award, and thanks Global Traveler and its readers for acknowledging our efforts and commitment.”
The award was a result of a survey Global Traveler conducted of its readers taking place from October 1, 2018, to January 31, 2019. The survey asked open-ended questions covering the best in leisure, luxury and lifestyle travel. The survey ran in the magazine, as an insert, direct mail questionnaire and was also available online.
The popularity of the Port Canaveral terminal shows no signs of slowing. In March, Carnival Cruise Line celebrated the ground-breaking of their brand new Port Canaveral terminal which is slated to be in operation by May of 2020. And for all of us Disney-lovers, Disney Cruise Line recently signed a 20-year agreement with Port Canaveral slated to bring even more ships and guests to the Florida port.
As it stands now, the terminal hosts more than 4.5 million cruise passengers annually and over 6 million tons of cargo!
