Florida Guide > Travelling
There are many different cruises available in Florida . Some of the more popular ones are the ones that sail out of port Canaveral, these could be the Carnival ones or the Disney ones whichever you choose you will be assured a great time.
The Carnival ones are what are called Fun ships but if you want a more formal class of ship their sister company Royal Caribbean the more formal one.
Generally there are 2 sittings in each dinning room but there are also buffet restaurants so the choice is yours but I would personally recommend the dining room as the service and food is excellent. There is always something to eat 24 hours a day Pizza, deli sandwiches ECT on certain nights there is a midnight buffet available ( do take clothes that expand as you will certainly need them).
There was a wide variety of nationalities on board we were sat with Spanish, American and Russian people so it was a good mix.
The staff on board is also from a wide variety of nationalities and work extremely hard to please and always had a smile on their faces.
Each evening when we went back to the cabin we had a different towel made into animals sat on the bed.
On a 5 day cruise there is one formal evening with a captains cocktail party before hand, on a 7 day cruise they do have 2 formal nights
The photographer is constantly taking pictures but there is no obligation to buy but you do get lots to choose from.
They range from 3 days upwards we recently took a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas stopping at Free port Grand Bahamas and then at Nassau, but there are many Itineraries to choose from so the choice is yours
The operation of getting aboard is so simple you arrive at the dock go to the point where you unload your cases then park your car all within the space of a few hundred yards, you then board your chosen ship.
The cost is very reasonable and for that you get all meals and entertainment.
They also sail out of Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and Tampa and do offer a wide range of Itineraries
It is a good idea to combine a cruise with a stay in the Orlando area, personally I would do the cruise first then a stay in a villa in the area or alternatively you may want to visit Cape Canaveral on Disembarkation.
We found that booking a cruise online before travel suited us the best but you can also book from the Sunday paper whilst in Orlando if you do decide on the spur of the moment.
I can highly recommend a cruise whilst in Florida and from someone who dislikes the sea that is something.
