We're Joanne & Jim from Cape Canaveral, Florida. This will be our 35th cruise (mostly on Celebrity & Viking Ocean), but only one other Carnival cruise. We signed up for this one, since the price was great and we can visit one of our daughters in the NYC area for a few days prior to the cruise and we end less than a half mile from our home. They have been building a huge new terminal at Port Canaveral, specifically for this ship. Instead of being on the north side of the inlet, where Carnival ships normally dock, this is on the south side and very close to the inlet and Jetty Park.
