The itinerary

Widely known for the Kennedy Space Center, Port Canaveral is located in the city of Cape Canaveral, home to beautiful beaches and Brevard Zoo. It's now the fastest-growing cruise port in Florida and is located just 45 miles east of Orlando. This makes it the perfect opportunity to arrive a few days early for your cruise and combine it with some theme park thrills or some futuristic space adventures!

Nassau's sheltered harbor bustles with cruise-ship activity, while a block away Bay Street's sidewalks are crowded with shoppers who duck into air-conditioned boutiques and relax on benches in the shade of mahogany and lignum vitae trees. A trip to Nassau wouldn't be complete without a stop at some of the island's well-preserved historic buildings. The large, pink colonial-style edifices house Parliament and some of the courts, while others, like Fort Charlotte, date back to the days when pirates ruled the town. Take a tour via horse-drawn carriage for the full effect.

Perfect Day at CocoCay is Royal Caribbean's exclusive private island. Whether your perfect holiday involves relaxing on the beach with a cocktail or enjoying high-octane thrills, there's something for everyone at CocoCay. Thrillseekers can conquer the tallest waterslide in North America and soar over the island on 1,600 feet of zipwire, whilst sunseekers can enjoy drinks at the swim-up bar and lounge in a private cabana on Oasis Lagoon, the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean. Kids will never get bored at Splashaway Bay and Splash Summit, while the adults can enjoy live music at Captain Jack's or stare out at the cyrstal clear tropical waters at Chill Island.
