BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – It seems that December was a month for Port Canaveral to host royalty, historically speaking.
The SS Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) made her inaugural visit to the Port on December 8, 1980, docking at what is now the North Cargo Berth 2.
A year later on December 12, 1981, the luxury liner returned for her second call.
She would make three more visits to Port Canaveral over the years, the last being in January 2001 before her retirement.
