Default Re: Port Canaveral vs Tampa

If you're flying in I'd much prefer Tampa because the distance from the airport to the port is only about 2 or 3 miles in Tampa, but much, much further to Port Canaveral from Orlando. As someone else stated, if you're looking for things to do, or see before or after sailing, once again, Tampa might be better, as Port Canaveral is in the middle of nowhere, and of course Tampa is a big city. Costs are the same for parking, and security about the same as well. Both ports are very, very good when compared to Miami, and IMO Ft Lauderdale is about in the middle (but has lots of ships and lots of options).
Happy sailing,
