BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – Port Canaveral’s CEO Captain John Murray says their cruising numbers were strong through the holidays and right now they are running at about 70% capacity for all their cruise lines.

He also says there are 10 homeported ships at the port with the Carnival Liberty ready to join in a few weeks.

Murray says if they got through the past two years with COVID-19 disrupting the industry, they can get through this.

“This is another cycle of COVID, and it is how you manage it and the ships are managing it, the cruise lines are managing it and I think at the end of the day this is what we will have to do for the foreseeable future, even after it becomes an endemic, and we deal with it in our daily lives,” Murray said.

Murray says January and February are usually slower for cruising, but the ultimate passenger test will be spring break.
