Travel

Getting to CoderCruise is a relatively straightforward affair.  Below you will find details on hotel, air travel, and the cruise terminal itself.  If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

 

Hotel

The cruise doesn’t depart the port until 4:00 pm, but you will have an assigned check-in time as early as 12:30 pm. More importantly, you don’t want to be late.  The ship won’t wait for you.  So unless you live within a couple hours of Port Canaveral, it makes sense to arrive no later than August 18th, and stay the night.

To help you accomplish this, we have negotiated a block rate at the Sheraton Suites Orlando Airport at only $99/night.  This rate applies to the Saturday & Sunday before the event, as well as Friday the 23rd, if you want to stay a night after we dock.  Use the link below to book into our block, or call directly and say you are with “CoderCruise 2019”

Book at $99/night

 

Arriving by Air

While there are a number of airports in Florida, you’ll want to arrive at the Orlando International Airport (MCO)  It is just 45 minutes away from the cruise terminal, and is very close to the hotel we are booking a block at.

 

Getting to the Cruise Terminal

The Port Canaveral cruise terminal website provides detailed information about the terminal for passengers.  However, the necessary information that you need to know is:

If driving…
Whether you are driving in that morning or drove to the hotel beforehand, the cruise terminal offers plentiful secure parking for the duration of your cruise. The cost is just $17/day for the length of your cruise.
If coming from the hotel…
The hotel offers a shuttle to the cruise terminal, we are still working on pricing for that option.  Or just take a quick Uber or Lyft trip.
If flying in that morning…
While we highly recommend you don’t do this, if you arrive the morning of the cruise and need to get directly to the ship, then you can take an Uber for ~$60 to get to the port.  But we suggest using the Cruise Shuttle that exists for only $17.99 per person.
