Canaveral Port Authority Cruise Terminal 8 Expansion and Renovation

Port Canaveral, Florida, is home to the second-busiest cruise port in the world. Eighty percent of the Port’s revenue is generated from the cruise business, which is seeing an increased demand for larger ships with expanded luxurious amenities. In 2019, Port Canaveral Authority authorized a $40 million renovation and expansion of Cruise Terminal #8, that provides services to accommodate the Disney Cruise Line.

GRAEF provided the design for a new baggage screening building, an expansion to accommodate a new concierge area and disembarkation ramp and an additional expansion that will include a new entry and screening area and new drop-off and plaza canopies. The two-story project added about 13,000 square feet of space to the existing structure.

In addition to improving and expanding the infrastructure at the Port, the main channel’s depth was also increased to 43 feet to accommodate the larger ships.

Disney Cruise Lines set sail in their new home at Port Canaveral in August 2021.
