I just did the criuse to Cape Canaveral...let me start off by saying all the excursions were very expensive. All the theme park excersions were over $100 per person. They also have Kayaks (sorry if spelt wrong) and an airboat tour of the everglades. Thats the tour I wish I would have done, it looked really nice (They played a video of that excersion on the in room tv). And both of those tours were reasonably priced.
Me and my girlfriend decided for that day to stay on the boat. It was great. All the pools were empty, and we actully had the hot tub to ourselves for a very long time. And the slide was empty!! We must have done it like 10 times in a row w/out waiting. Other days the wait for the slide was long, and the hot tubs were full of kids splashing and jumping in.
We did the Everglades tour on another cruise and it was awesome! I highly recomend it. This time, we are considering the Fun In The Sun excursion that just went up on Carnival's website. They take you to a resort in Cocoa Beach, and you can use all the facilites there, including pool, water slide, and lazy river.

We went to an historic fort called Fort Christmas - it was admission by "donation" and very interesting. We also did a jet boat gator viewing tour - it was a hoot and we actually saw several gators - close up. TTFN Jennifer
Take a ride out on the 520 Highway to the Lone Cabbage ...it's out in the glades...only about 1/2 from the port and 5 miles west of I95. You can go for an airboat ride that is REALLY good and they have some REALLY good seafood there. You can try frog legs and alligator tail and lots of other really good local food! The airboat ride is a whole lot of fun. You will fly over the swamps and be taken into the very dark dark waters of the glades where old old Florida is at its best!
