Ports In Orlando And Nearby Ports In Florida
In Orlando, unlike most other cities in the United States, ports are one of the main entrances in the city. People come before, after and as a part of their cruise journey or decide to take a tour around the city before or after their flights. The Magic City has its own biggest port, Port Canaveral, but those who happen to disembark at Tampa or Miami have no problem traveling to Orlando by road, no matter how long it takes, especially when they can do so in a luxurious Orlando limo service that will make their time pass faster. In fact, our limos are so comfortable you can do whatever you like while you travel with us from any port in Florida – rest, play with your children, watch a movie, work or browse the internet using our free WiFi service.
So, are you coming through Florida via one of its many ports? If you are, here’s what you can expect at the biggest ones.
Port Canaveral is the closest one to the city of Orlando, about an hour drive away from the city center and Orlando International Airport. They consider themselves to be the world’s most popular cruise port which just may be true with 4.5 million passengers that go through its gates every year. Kennedy Space Center is right nearby and Disney World, Universal Orlando and SeaWorld are as far as the city center.
Most travelers consider it to be a well-organized place, no matter how long the lines may be once the passengers disembark from their cruise ship. We can pick you up right from your cruise terminal and take you wherever you want to go in Orlando and back on time for your ship to sail away.
Cruise Lines: Carnival Cruise Line, Disney Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line.
Restaurants & Food: Fishlips Waterfront Bar & Grill, Wild Ocean Market, Grills Seafood & Tiki Bar, Milliken’s Reef, Rusty’s Seafood and Oyster Bar, Seafood Atlantic and Subway
A ride from PortMiami is a long-distance ride with almost four hours of driving. Even though it is operating with much more cruise lines, a number of passengers is slightly lower than in Port Canaveral.
You can take a tour around Miami or head straight to Orlando in our comfortable and spacious limousine. All of our limousines are excellent for long-distance travel, but if you are traveling with kids, we always recommend an SUV. They are equipped with WiFi and DVD players, so your kids can amuse themselves while you relax and prepare for your day in Orlando.

Restaurants & Food: Seaman’s Cafe, The Knife Restaurant, Largo Bar and Grill, Los Ranchos Steakhouse, Tradewinds Waterfront Bar and Grill, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co, Lombardi’s Miami Italian Restaurant and Hard Rock Cafe Miami
Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale is somewhat closer to Orlando than PortMiami and it will take you about three hours to reach Disney World, for example. You can easily go anywhere from Port Everglades by using major expressways and Federal Highway.
Passengers consider it to be a well-organized port where the staff is always helpful and your possessions are safe. Most people consider it to be a bit confusing, however, with little signage, hard to find and complicated parking. All of this can easily be avoided when you book our Orlando limo service.
Cruise Lines: Balearia Bahamas Express, Celebrity Cruises, Costa Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, Crystal Cruises, Cunard, Holland America Line, ISE (Semester at Sea), Pearl Seas Cruises, Silversea, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean.

Port Tampa Bay
Port Tampa Bay is only an hour away from Orlando which makes it almost as close as Port Canaveral. Less than a million passengers go through Port Tampa every year, but it is still a significant port in Florida.
Passengers mostly complain about valet parking and parking in general, where some had to pay for parking spots, driving is pretty difficult and it can get pretty crowded once it’s time to disembark the ship.
Cruise Lines: Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean.
Restaurants & Food: Splitsville Southern + Social, Jackson’s Bistro, Bar & Sushi, The Urban Cantina, Eddie & Sam’s N.Y. Pizza, Little Greek Fresh Grill-South Tampa, Zelda’s Cafe & Deli, Big Ray’s Fish Camp, Beef ‘O’ Brady’s, Pane Rustica
