The beach is right across the street. The ship you see is in like a bay right off of the ocean. Hwy A1A is like the main drag along the beach. We stayed @ the LaQuinta in Cocoa Beach last trip to PC. The Radisson, I believe has a complimentary shuttle to the port and back. Its a very nice hotle. Its also close to Ron Jons and plenty of eateries. Its nice because you can find just about everything you need along A1A. (grocery store, drug store, beach, food...) Don't forget about the Cocoa Beach pier!! Lots to do there. Good seafood. Good luck and have fun. What ship are you sailing on?
