Cruise Critic, a subsidiary of tripadvisor.com, has named Port Canaveral as North America’s best home port for 2015. Besides the proximity to Orlando’s theme park, the site mentioned other reasons for its ranking: beaches, a campground, oceanfront dining, and a new Exploration Tower. They also mentioned its efforts to expand its facilities and promote increased Space Coast-area attractions for cruise passengers. All four cruise lines that home base at Port Canaveral have received awards from the editors of the Cruise Critic site.
