Here’s what you can expect:

  • Faster Construction: The new terminal will be built at the existing North 8 berth, minimizing disruption and allowing for a speedy completion within two years.
  • Cost-Effective Expansion: This strategic location offers significant cost savings, allowing them to invest more in guest experiences.
  • Operational Flexibility: The multi-user design ensures the terminal can adapt to different cruise lines and ship sizes.

“We have cruise partners with immediate needs to locate assets in Florida and Port Canaveral is where they want to be,” stated Capt. John Murray, Port Canaveral CEO. “Our ability to efficiently bring a new cruise terminal online was key to retaining and growing this important business segment that supports many jobs and delivers high value to our regional and state economy.”


Why North 8 Berth?

  • Perfect Location: The new terminal will be built at the existing North 8 berth. This spot is ideal because:
    • It shares a basin with the existing Cruise Terminal 5, making efficient use of space.
    • North 8 was built in 2018 with flexibility in mind, so modifications to accommodate larger ships will be minimal.
    • The vacant land around North 8 allows for construction with minimal disruption to current port operations.

Designed for the Future:

The new terminal will be equipped with the latest technology to seamlessly handle various cruise lines and ship sizes. This multi-user approach will further enhance Port Canaveral’s position as a leading cruise destination.

“A new cruise terminal and the business it will deliver builds on our Board’s commitment to the economic prosperity of our Port community,” said Micah Loyd, Chairman of the Canaveral Port Authority Board of Commissioners. “This proactive, business-oriented strategy reaffirms our commitment to ensure the State of Florida continues to prosper from cruise tourism and remains the ‘Cruise Capital of the World’.”
