Default port canaveral vs. jacksonville

We are narrowing down our next cruise and two possibilities are leaving from Port Canaveral or Jacksonville. Having never sailed from either.......was wondering how far and best way to get to each from respective aiprort? It has been almost three weeks since being on the Millennium and the need a cruise depression is real bad!
Thanks in advance

In Port Canaveral almost all the passengers fly into Orlando International, (MCO), which is an hour or so away, about 60 miles. Most use the bus or shuttle to get there and some rent cars or a limo.
In Jacksonville the Jacksonville Internation Airport, (JAX), is about 10 miles I guess and that is about 15 minutes away. The have shuttle services as well as taxies or limos.

We sailed out of Jax in October. It was less than 20.00 for the cab fair. The cruise terminal is new, clean and the employees are very friendly. I would highly recomend Jax as opposed to Port Canaveral. The Orlando airport is so crazy compared to Jax and port canaveral is nothing special IMHO. Have fun!

If you fly into Jax the night before and need a place to eat, I can recommend a super place. <g>

All you folks that live close enough to eat in that "special place" - I'm jealous.

My sister was *supposed* to dine in that special restaurant a few months back when she was at a conference. She ended up stuck with some other colleagues at the conference and couldn't go.

Guess I'm gonna have to drive all the way from Atlanta one of these days. Thomas - you need to set up a special CM dinner!
