Each year Cruise Hive readers vote on the best in the cruise industry. This year, Port Canaveral came out on top for Best Homeport with 24% of the votes. This is the third year in a row that Port Canaveral has won first place in that category, followed by Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

“We’re thrilled to have earned this valued distinction three years in a row,” stated Capt. John Murray, Port Canaveral CEO. “What an honor for us and our cruise partners to be so well recognized for providing a high quality guest experience. It’s tremendous gratitude of our efforts from the millions of cruise guests sailing from Port Canaveral year after year.”

Port Canaveral is located on the East coast of Florida, near Orlando. It is home to many of the top cruise lines in the industry and is the second busiest port in the world. Some of the reasons it has won “Best Homeport” include:

  • Easy access
  • Short transfer from the airport
  • Parking availability
  • Easy access to Orlando’s many theme parks
