Once you make the loop, you will see the cruise ships almost directly ahead of you. Getting to Port Canaveral is easy no matter which airport in Central Florida you arrive at. The port is only 45 minutes away from Orlando International Airport (MCO), and the 528 Expressway leads directly to the Port Canaveral cruise terminal.
