Cape Canaveral: The United States’ space capital
With MSC Cruises’ Caribbean Vacations now also calling at Cape Canaveral in the United States, you can be sure of an out-of-this-world cruise holiday that you’ll never want to end.
Situated on the United States’ eastern seaboard on the Atlantic Ocean in the “Sunshine State” of Florida lays the city of Cape Canaveral, America’s celebrated “gateway to the cosmos”, a (nautical) stone’s throw from the Caribbean and about an hour’s drive due east of Orlando and the world-famous Disney World theme park.
Due to its close association with the spacefaring history of the United States, the Cape Canaveral headland forms part of what is aptly called the “Space Coast”, a region that even prides itself in a very special area code: 3, 2, 1! With the first rocket having been fired from the Cape in July 1950, the American space age is now more than half a century old – reason enough visit the fascinating Air Force Space & Missile Museum during your stay in this historic place.
Also on the Cape Canaveral must-see list are the city’s famous 19th-century lighthouse and – a short drive to the west into the beautiful Floridian countryside – Lake Kissimmee, Lake Apopka, Lake Jackson and Lake Marian, all of them home to a variety of indigenous wildlife and spectacular scenery.
A luxury Caribbean cruise with MSC Cruises is the perfect way to recharge your batteries and team a first-class vacation with a visit to one of the most famous places on earth.
