Port Canaveral, Florida (Orlando)
Located just 45 miles east of Orlando and 75 miles south of Daytona Beach, our departure point at Port Canaveral is easily accessible via wings and wheels. Florida’s fastest growing cruise port is ultra modern and surrounded by more recreational facilities than all other Florida Ports combined, including Space Coast attractions, a new Exploration Tower, Cove harbor-side dining and retail area, and Port Canaveral’s Jetty Park, a 5-acre ocean front beach with campground, fishing pier and boat ramps. Port Canaveral is the perfect place to blast off for The 80s Cruise!
Just a few hundred miles from Florida lie the magical islands of the Bahamas, with its 100,000 miles of the most gorgeous crystal blue waters on the planet, and whose capital city Nassau teems with a cultural mix of lively Caribbean flavor and proud British tradition. Christened in 1695, Nassau over the centuries has been home to everyone from pirates to fugitive slaves, from rum smugglers to runaway lovers over the centuries. Now it is the home of the world famous Atlantis resort, marching flamingos, incredible shopping, dining and sightseeing, and miles of spectacular beaches.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
St. Thomas is the gateway isle of the U.S. Virgin Islands in the Caribbean, known for its beaches and snorkeling spots. Its territorial capital Charlotte Amalie has been the heart of St. Thomas’ activities from its Danish colonial times in the 1600’s. Historic buildings like the 1679 Watchtower Blackbeard’s Castle remind visitors of the area’s rich and turbulent pirate history, and on the harbor, 17th-century Fort Christian is now a fascinating museum. Get out of downtown and you can find a picture-perfect beach for relaxing or snorkeling, enjoy the island’s world-renowned golf course, or take the Skyride 700 feet above the city.
When we dock in the capital of St. Maarten, you will walk off the ship to a boardwalk of beachfront excitement. You can duck into one of the awesome bars, check out the duty-free shopping, head for the powdery sand beach, explore the town of Philipsburg or tour an island rich in history, charm and culture. Your view of paradise can come from a hike on top of the mountain at Pic Paradis point, from the zip line above the historic Emilio Wilson Estate or by boat as you spin around the 37 square mile island.
