More cruise guests than ever launched multi-day vacations at Port Canaveral in FY ‘18, as the number of passenger movements at the world’s second busiest cruise port rose by 327,489 to 4,568,431 in 2018, a 7.7-percent increase over last year.
“These historic achievements are affirmation that the course we’ve charted for our Port is a good one,” stated Port CEO Capt. John Murray. “We’re continuing to look ahead to strong organic growth, sound business planning, and a clear focus on creating a best-in-class experience for every customer.”
“These are exciting times at the Port. Our evolution from a small man-made port for the military to a 21st century economic driver for the Central Florida region and beyond has been driven by deliberate and strategic decisions,” Commission Chairman Wayne Justice stated. “Our strong partnerships with our customers and our community, combined with a commitment to enhance the value of our assets and invest in infrastructure will continue to promote solid growth and prosperity.”
