There are many hotels near Port Canaveral from which to choose, if your family plans to cruise from the "Orlando" area (actual cruise port is about one hour east of Orlando).
Without a doubt, cruising out of Port Canaveral to the Caribbean is highly popular among families from around the world.
In fact, that is the main place to board a Disney Caribbean cruise.
However, in addition to Disney Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise Lines, Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean offer several cruise sailings from Port Canaveral to the Caribbean and the Bahamas.
In terms of hotels near Port Canaveral, you have two options from which to choose.
On the other hand, if you plan on visiting the John F. Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa Beach, etc., then you should choose hotels near Cocoa Beach.
