For anyone on a cruise starting, ending or visiting Port Canaveral, Kennedy Space Center is a must visit attraction. To be fair – I am a total space geek, so it’s my kind of day out, but it really is a great way to spend an educational, but seriously fun day out.
I am fortunate enough to have been to Kennedy Space Center a few times in my life, but the most recent occasion was as a “shore excursion” booked through the cruise line, but at the end of the cruise which started and terminated at Port Canaveral.
Tours at the end of cruises are really popular for several reasons:
- They can get you off the ship quicker
- You are able to sightsee/shop as appropriate but your bags are looked after
- Kills a chunk of time – especially great if you have a late flight home
For me, it is more about killing time before a late flight, but with the security of having your bags looked after so you don’t have to cart them around.
