More ships are set to be homeported in Port Canaveral during the upcoming winter season. In addition to larger vessels from Royal Caribbean and MSC, the Florida port will welcome additional ships from Carnival and Norwegian during the season.

Joining Carnival’s three-ship lineup, the Carnival Vista is set to kick-off a summer program departing from Port Canaveral in November.

Norwegian Cruise Line, meanwhile, is nearly doubling its offerings with the addition of the Norwegian Epic.
