Port Canaveral in Florida is one of the busiest cruise ports in the world. That means excellent ship-watching – and it also means the port is a popular launching point for cruise vacations. Whether you're visiting the port to watch the ships slide by, or you are getting ready to set off on an ocean adventure, the Port Canaveral area features a variety of different accommodations to meet various needs.
Some hotels, like the Holiday Inn Express, offer special cruise deals and parking discounts. Others, like the Royal Mansions Resort, will sweep you away from the excitement with its peaceful stretch of the beach and fully equipped condos.
Other hotels, like the Radisson Resort at the Port, are pet-friendly. The Best Western Ocean Front even has a separate family suites building, for people traveling with little ones.
If you are looking for accommodations that have it all, down to on-site food and a complimentary happy hour with wine, beer and snacks, look no further than the Residence In by Marriott Cape Canaveral, where rooms are also 50 percent bigger than typical rooms.
Where you stay on the port can extend that luxurious feeling and mental and physical getaway that attracts so many travelers to cruise ships.
