Default Re: Melbourne Airport

I grew up in the Cocoa Beach area but have never flown into Melbourne myself. Besides being more expensive to fly into, Since it is a smaller airport, it can and does shut down sometimes due to weather conditions. If I remember correctly it is about a 20-25 minutes ride to PC depending on traffic. We have rented a car from Budget and returned it at their location about 1/2 mile south of the port. There is also Cocoa Beach Shuttle, Arts Shuttle and Mears Shuttle services to PC. Flying into Orlando is your other option which is where we fly in for cruises and visits. The drive is about 45 minutes on the B-line and we have stayed at the Radisson, Comfort Inn and our favorite Hampton Inn. Have a great cruise.
