Reviewed October 21, 2018

We booked a Fly, Snooze and Cruise package for our recent Disney Cruise. We landed in Orlando, called the hotel shuttle (Embassy Suites) and were picked up. The hotel was great too! The next morning we waited for the Go Port Canaveral Shuttle to pick us up. They were prompt and efficient in getting everyone boarded. Made a few more stops and we were on our way. Dropped us off curbside at the cruise terminal. Bags were then picked up by porters to be put on the ship. Very easy process. Returning we waited a few minutes for a bus and then we were on our way back to MCO. We are a family of four with two young children. Would definitely recommend using them to get back and forth. We will book with them again.

We used Go Port Canaveral for our Disney Cruise vacation. They exhibited excellent customer service. They sent reminder emails as well as a follow up call to make sure we didn't have any questions or concerns. Our driver Pam P. was great. She was able to take us back to our hotel in Sanford from the port. We were able to use the hotel facilities( pool, exercise room) while we waited for our late afternoon flight. Would definitely use them again.

Will never use this service again. We used the “Fly, Snooze, Cruise.” The “beachside resort” Oceans Landing is little better than a discount motel with what the desk clerk phrased as a “private access to a public beach.” This portion of beach was so absolutely riddled with seaweed and broken shells that we found ourselves sticking to the pools instead of the beach. The hotel also had no vending machines in any “vending” areas except at the front office. The TV in our room didnt work properly either, but we were excited about the cruise and let all of that go.
What really ruined the GoPort package is what happened after the cruise. You have to get off of the ship early. We disembarked around 7:20-7:30. Then the shuttle service didnt have record of us and took several minutes before one of them happen to make the right phone call to get us transportation back to the mediocre hotel.
We arrived back at the hotel at 8:30am. We figured we wouldn’t have a room for a while, but we planned on hanging out in the pool until our room was prepared. What we didn’t expdct was the desk clerk to inform us we weren’t even allowed on the property until noon. Think about that for a moment. You have to leave the ship before 8am but the hotel in this “fly, snooze, cruise,” package doesn’t let anyone in until noon? So the packages very much leaves you no place to go in an area in which you don’t live for several hours? Who thought this made sense? The desk clerk was very quick to shrug his shoulders and tell us that it’s not his fault, the “GoPort people set this up and they know our policies.”
Then to top it off the shuttle services to the airport doesn’t start running in the morning until after our flight leaves to head home, so we are having to pay for private transportation to make our flight in addition to the GoPort package we purchased because we thought it would take care of this.
So the hotel is sub-par, the shuttle service is only half useful, but with sure charge you full price, and they leave you stranded in Florida with your entire family including 2 children for several hours.
I will NEVER use GoPort again, I will never use Oceans Landing Suites again, and I would strongly recommend anyone considering either of these to reconsider.

We used this for our Carnival curise. We booked the fly, snooze and cruise package. The Holiday Inn Express in Orlando was the hotel, shuttle was an earlier one at this hotel. Had no isse with reservations, everything was taken care of and handled very professionally. Shuttle was easy to get back to airport after we got off the ship. Highly recomment this service.

We used go port Canaveral for our carnival cruise. We did snooze and cruise package. We stayed at the Marriott lakeside hotel about five minutes from airport. After arriving we decided to uber to Disney Springs for some bowling and dinner. The shuttles were clean and air conditioned. We arrived to the ship on time even with the driver not getting to us till 10:20am for a 10am scheduled pickup. We were almost last to get off the ship due to being on level 9 and still made it to the bus. We arrived at the airport by 11am. Its about a 40 minute drive from airport to port. Will use again and highly recommend.
