Port Canaveral cruise business ends 2022 with huge spike. Here’s what’s ahead.
Port Canaveral ended 2022 with a surge of cruise ship business, which hints at good news ahead for 2023. The sea hub, which accommodates several major cruise operators, saw 243 cruise ship calls — ported and visiting — for the final quarter of calendar 2022 from October to December. Why this matters: New cruise ships will draw more people to the region, which may lead to more revenue for hotels, restaurants, shops and other local businesses.
