Default Disembarkation tours - Port Canaveral

We're doing a 3 night cruise on SOS Thanksgiving weekend. Our flight home isn't until 4:25PM. Has anyone done any of the disembarkation tours from Port Canaveral? If so, how were they? Would you recommend?

Default Re: Disembarkation tours - Port Canaveral

My wife and I took the Kennedy Space Center Tour on 9/27 of this year after a great cruise on SOS. The International Space Station Exhibit was closed to visitors at that time after the recent events. The bus that took us from the ship to the space center also needed to take a longer route, as they could no longer use the same entry gate used by employees. The schedule for the busses that take tourists around the center seemed to have been changed from every 15 minutes to every 30 minutes and our guide wasn?t aware of the change until we were on the tour, so that threw our tour off its schedule even more. All of us understood why the problems existed, but even so, some of our fellow tourists were unhappy with the tour. The length of time that you get to stay seems to be determined by what time the earliest tour participants flight out is, ours was 3:25pm. I will say the tour operator and the bus driver were very friendly, but I would say the best part of the tour is the fact you get to be in the first group of passengers that get off the ship and through customs. The tour was rushed and you will really need more time to enjoy the space center than is available on this particular tour from the ship to the space center to the airport.
