Florida Cruises

As America’s ‘Sunshine State’, Florida is proud to claim 300 sunny days every year. 

Known for its theme parks, the Everglades, a huge range of excellent shopping options, incredible beaches lining the coasts (some classified as the best in the world), delicious food to suit all tastes and much more, Florida cruises are popular for good reason.  

From Jacksonville to Key West, Orlando, down to Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Florida is an adventure playground for every age, just waiting for you to come and explore. 

Top 5 interesting facts

  • Florida is the same size as England and Wales. 
  • Siesta Key Beach never gets hot – it’s 99% pure quartz crystal. 
  • Walt Disney World Resort is the same size as San Francisco. 
  • Florida’s oranges make up 40% of the world’s orange juice supply. 
  • It’s the only place to find wild alligators and crocodiles together.  



Miami, Port Everglades and Port Canaveral are the busiest cruise ports in the world, in that order. Miami welcomes an impressive 4.8 million passengers every year.  

In Miami, you can explore the famous art deco buildings lining Ocean Drive, bathe on South Beach and spend your dollars in the Collins Avenue Shopping District. For those who like fashion and glamour, visit the Versace Mansion or simply enjoy a martini in The Tides hotel, where Frank Sinatra was known to enjoy his. 

Captivating experiences

Port Everglades is located in Fort Lauderdale, just a five minute drive from the city centre. Here you can take a water taxi tour along the multi-million dollar homes on the waterfront and shop on Las Olas Boulevard or at the Sawgrass Mills discount outlet. 

In Port Canaveral, the Kennedy Space Centre is an absolute must. You could have lunch with an astronaut there, see the real-life Atlantis – a spaceship that’s been on 32 missions – and explore the NASA headquarters. Port Canaveral is the closest port to the theme parks of Orlando and Cocoa Beach with its six glorious miles of pristine white sands and sea turtles. 




We’ve all tried the famous American cuisine, but there are a few unique food opportunities to make the most of when you jump off your ship. Number one would be key lime pie – a custard pie made from the delicious Florida-grown Key limes and often topped with meringue. 

With an overpopulation of alligators in Florida, it’s only natural they find their way onto the plate. ‘Gator bites’ are very popular here – little cuts of the reptile served fried up in batter with a dip of your choice. 

Shrimp, oysters and scallops are also in abundance, served simply with a fresh squeeze of lemon juice. 

Breakfast is the highlight of the day in Florida’s many diners. From blueberry pancakes with strawberries and cream, to the most fantastical omelettes you could imagine, with fries on the side, and homemade granola with yoghurt and fresh honey if you want to go healthy. Breakfast is a great time to indulge – and don’t worry, you can work it all off by lunch.
