Our boat arrives back into Port Canaveral at 7am and our flight time has been moved to 11am at Orlando International. We will be renting a car from Avis to drive to the airport. If we carry our luggage off and are one of the first ones off would we be able to make this flight? Thanks ahead of time!

It's a 2 hour and 50 min drive from the port to Orlando Intl Airport (if going to speed limit which I believe is 70).

Sorry I was thinking from Ft. lauderdale. It's actually around a 45 minute drive from Port Canaveral to Orlando's airport.

If everything goes perfectly, then yes you could make your flight. That means, you dock on time, customs and immigration clear the ship on time, you get off the ship carrying your own luggage, you get to the rental car place and there's no line, there are no wrecks, there is no construction, you get the car filled back up (or prepay the gas), get it dropped off with no line, then you'll be fine.

If not, is there a plan B?

Thank you for the information! We cancelled that airfare and booked with a different airline! I don't really want to be in a rush on our last day

I'm so glad to hear that. My heart would ache for you if something were to go wrong. I'm sure it can be done, but I would hate to be under that much pressure when returning from a wonderful cruise.

If it were Ft. Lauderdale, much more doable since you're literally across the street from the airport. Heck, you could walk if you had to. Maybe they'll build an airport closer to Port Canaveral one of these days?
