Florida Cruises

Orange groves, theme parks and white sandy beaches make Florida a fantastic port. Nicknamed the Sunshine State for its reliable weather, Florida boasts the Latin-influenced charm of Miami and the family-friendly attractions of Orlando. The Florida Keys include over 1,700 islands to explore, with warm waters just right for snorkeling, scuba diving or taking a dip! Cruise through the unique wetlands of the Everglades, or enjoy the high-octane environment of Daytona Beach’s iconic racetrack. Modern art galleries and historic villas satisfy cultural cravings in this dynamic destination.


What You Need To Know About Florida

What are the can’t-miss sights in Florida?

Florida is filled to the brim with spectacular natural beauty as well as manmade attractions, so you can take your pick from lush golf courses, gorgeous beaches and action-packed theme parks here. Fort Lauderdale is famed for its palm-fringed promenade and accompanying beach, while Miami offers pastel art deco architecture, a sizzling nightlife and prime shopping outlets along Ocean Drive. Visit the Everglades National Park to get up close and personal with manatees and crocodiles, or following in the footsteps of astronauts at the Kennedy Space Centre. Take the Seven Mile Bridge to reach the tropical paradise of Key West, soaking in the abundant sunshine!

How can you reach Florida from the cruise terminal?

There are multiple cruise terminals in the state of Florida, so your transportation options will vary depending on where you dock. Port Everglades provides access to Fort Lauderdale’s airport and city centre, located four miles outside of town. If you arrive here, you can take a quick, inexpensive taxi to get into the city, or enjoy the water taxi system to travel by waterway. Travelling further afield? There’s a high-speed rail service linking Fort Lauderdale with West Palm Beach and Miami. If you’re arriving in Port Canaveral, you can take a shuttle bus into Orlando or enjoy the local attractions like The Cove and Exploration Tower.

When is the best time to visit Florida?

Florida may be warm throughout the year, but it’s important to plan ahead to avoid the rainy season! The best time to plan your holiday will depend on the region you’re visiting. For central Florida destinations like Orlando, January to April offers warm, dry conditions without the soaring summer heat. South Florida and the Florida Keys are at their best between December and April, although this is also the high season for tourists in search of winter sunshine! If you’re not a fan of high temperatures and humidity but still want to visit Florida in the summer, head to North Florida.

Apart from theme parks, there is so much to see and do in Florida. You could visit the Kennedy Space Centre, swim with dolphins, visit the Florida Keys, Miami or the Everglades. Plus the shopping is great!

Fort Lauderdale may offer 23 miles of sandy beaches, but it’s also a cultural hub! You can visit the NSA Art Museum, Bonnet House Museum and Gardens, or historic Stranahan House. In the evening, the Broward Centre for the Performing Arts hosts live theatre, classical concerts and Broadway spectaculars.

The Everglades National Park covers a good percentage of Florida’s southern land, nicknamed the ‘River of Grass’ for its unique environment and swampy climate. It’s one of the only places in the world where crocodiles and alligators live together!

Orlando’s known as the theme park capital of the world for a reason, being home not only to all the Disney charms of the Magic Kingdom but also to the Epcot Centre and Universal Studios. You’ll need more than a day to soak in all the rides, dining and entertainment these theme parks have to offer.

As one might expect in a tropical, beach-lined state, seafood is a must-have in Florida. You’ll find scallops, oysters, tuna, mahi-mahi, and crab all on the menu in Florida’s eateries, from laid-back beach shacks to upscale rooftop lounges.

Shopping is also a prime pastime in Florida! Pick up luxe designs on Ocean Drive in Miami, or flock to outlet stores for great deals on brand names. Orlando Premium Outlets includes the likes of Adidas and Nike at head-turning prices.
