Port Canaveral Florida is getting ready for cruising to resume this week! The cruise industry is kicking back up and cruise lines are heading back out with passengers.
Cruise lines have completed test sailings and have been given the go-ahead to sail with paying passengers. Carnival’s Mardi Gras just returned to Port Canaveral after completing its first sailing back after the pandemic.
Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas set sail yesterday on its first sailing back since COVID. Tonight, Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Dream will sail its first cruise with paying passengers since the COVID shutdown. It will be sailing a 4-night Bahamian cruise.
Port Canaveral will have one of its busiest weekends since the pandemic started. Cruise lines were shut down for over a year due to COVID.
“Over the next two to three weeks, you’re going to see a lot of activity of active sailings out of Port Canaveral. And that’s what’s got us excited right now,” said Canaveral Port Authority CEO Captain John Murray.
Work at Port Canaveral has been very slow over the last year. “It was very slow,” said Port Canaveral Manager Adam Der. “Sometimes a little boring, but you kind of keep busy and do what you do.”
He also shared that it’s exciting to see cruise ships return to the port. “It’s great to see, man. A lot of people looking forward to getting back on those cruises and having a good time.”
Will you be cruising again soon?
