Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal 5 Brand New Again After $48.38 Million Makeover

Passengers arriving at Port Canaveral to board Carnival Cruise Line's mega-ships will find upgraded facilities for their convenience. After undergoing a $48.38 million transformation in order to handle larger modern ships, Cruise Terminal 5 opened this past weekend hosting the Carnival Valor. The improvements include an expanded terminal, a longer 120-foot pier, a new 1,044-space parking garage, and new mobile passenger boarding bridges. Carnival Sunshine will berth at Terminal 5 as well.

Renovation of the 1991-built terminal began in August to allow Cruise Terminal 5 to handle ships carrying up to 3500 passengers, up from its previous capacity of 2500. The projects involved a majority of local workers consisting of 37 companies with a construction crew of 500 on the terminal and 50 companies with a crew of 450 on the parking garage for a total of 265,000 hours with zero injuries.
