We are staying at Jetty Park, a campground operated by the Port of Canaveral. The main attraction here are the cruise ships. Cruise ships from Disney, Carnival, Norwegian Cruise Line, and Royal Caribbean International sail from here. We saw on average 3 cruise ships a day leaving port, and they were easily seen as the campground is adjacent to the canal leading to the ocean. Also the campground has a very nice beach on the ocean and for the fisherman there is a fishing pier which was very popular. We took a day trip north from here to the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) where there is a wildlife drive through the refuge. This is within sight of the NASA launch facilities. The weather has been great and we are having no problems adjusting to life in the “Sunshine State”, life is good !
Here comes the “Carnival Dream” cruise ship:
