    Hi! We're going on an E. Caribbean cruise onboard the Fantasy in May. We're driving down, and plan to be there a day early. Do you have any recommendations for hotels near the port with a nice pool and access to dining? Thanks!

    Hi, Elizabeth!

    Congratulations on your spring cruise aboard Disney Cruise Line's newest darling, the Disney Fantasy.  Our family has driven to Port Canaveral from Alabama, and we enjoy having our own transportation -- especially if we want to take a side trip to the beach or to Walt Disney World.

    There are many nearby hotels, and some offer some great packages which can save you a little money in terms of parking, getting back and forth to the port and even feeding your crowd.

    The Radisson Resort at the Port is one of the closest hotels to Port Canaveral. The hotel offers free shuttle service to the port, as well as to the Kennedy Space Center. It also has a private tennis court and an outdoor pool. You can make reservations by calling 321-784-0000.

    Country Inn & Suites Cape Canaveral is located less than 1 mile from the port. It provides guests with the option to include free round-trip transportation to/from the port with their reservation. There is no additional charge, but reservations need to indicate the need for shuttle service.The hotel offers a free deluxe breakfast every morning, too. For more information or reservations, you can call 321-784-8500

    Quality Suites offers a park and cruise package that allows guests to park their vehicles at the hotel and take a shuttle service round-trip to and from the cruise port. Cruisers who do not require parking can still purchase the package to ensure they have round-trip transportation. The additional cost for the package is approximately $15 more than the regular nightly rate. The hotel also provides guests with a free continental breakfast buffet. Call for more details -- 321-783-6868.

    I hope this gives you an idea of your choices, and please let me know if I can assist you further. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
