Port Canaveral Cruise Ship Injury Lawyer

As cruise ship injury attorneys, the legal professionals at Lawlor, White & Murphey tend to see all of the negative things that can happen on ocean voyages. We know how passengers who become sick or get injured while at sea due to the negligence of a cruise line have to heal physically, mentally, and financially from their ordeal – and how frustrating it can be to trust that a cruise line will have your best interests in mind, only to learn that their main concern is their bottom line.

Despite that, we are also well aware that the vast majority of people who embark on cruises each year do so without any harm coming to them. Instead, they get a joyful, relaxing experience that they will never forget. As such, we are not against cruise lines or cruise vacations. All we recommend is that people looking into taking a cruise plan carefully.

That means not just thinking about where you want to go, but actually looking into the safety of that destination. Choosing a cruise line based on more than their amenities. Learning what to pack and how to best stay safe. And, in terms of making your trip as enjoyable as possible, thinking hard about the port of departure that you want to use. Most people give little thought to this last one, but the U.S. has 20 different cruise ports and where you leave from can make a huge impact on your overall trip.

One place that you should definitely consider is Port Canaveral, Florida. What does Port Canaveral have to offer that is different than other ports? Well, for starters, it is the most popular cruise port in the entire world. In large part, this is probably due to its proximity to so many local attractions.

Only 45 minutes away from Orlando, Port Canaveral provides easy access to all of the world-class amusements of central Florida, including DisneyWorld, Legoland, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and more. Even closer than that, you can explore Kennedy Space Center and other space coast attractions. And the port itself offers more recreational facilities than every other port in the state put together – including three different parks and the Exploration Tower, as well as shopping and fantastic harbor-side dining.
