Additionally, during today’s meeting the port’s CEO Captain John Murray shared the following slides as part of his monthly cruise update.
While our first Disney cruise was out of the Port of Los Angeles in 2008 our next cruise in 2009 was out of Port Canaveral. We were highly impressed with the DCL terminal back then it was fantastic looking. I can only imagine how they will improve/upgrade the DCL terminal there. What ever it looks like, it will be the best looking one around…Ok, maybe we are a bit one sided but who can blame us.
I love Port Canaveral. And I live in Miami. But we were on the Dream 11/29-12/3/21 out of Canaveral. We were resort guests who took a transfer. Pre Covid we would go through a side door. Made you feel special. This time not so much. If you are able body, the walk to be tested is bad enough. But I am on crutches and the fast pace was horrible. I was totally surprised there wasn’t anything to help people with walking problems. With this being said, we still had a awesome time and I have since booked 4 more cruises.
