NEW SOUTHERN CARIBBEAN CRUISES

The arrivals of homeported Carnival Sunshine (April 16) and Carnival Liberty (May 4) bring the cruise line's Fun Ship 2.0 innovations to Central Florida, as well as diverse new itineraries: 5-, 7- and 8-day trips to the Bahamas and the eastern, western and southern Caribbean.

Regularly scheduled southern Caribbean sailings are a new offering at Port Canaveral. These 8-day voyages with four days at sea allow guests to take full advantage of the new Fun Ship on-board amenities, including the Serenity adults-only retreats; shows, restaurants, pubs and clubs for all ages; 334-foot-long Waterworks twister slide and SportSquare, an outdoor recreation area with a suspended ropes course, mini-golf course and basketball court. Both Sunshine and Liberty stop at Aruba, Curacao and Grand Turk (some Liberty itineraries call at Bonaire) on their southern routes, offering passengers beaches, diving, shopping and exotic architecture and landscapes to explore.

VICTORY SAILS TO SUCCESS

Victory Casino Cruises is outperforming 2013 with a 23 percent increase in overall passengers, year-to-date. This is good news for the company's 450 local employees and the more than 1,000 passengers per day who spend an afternoon or evening aboard Victory I enjoying casino games and onboard entertainment.

About 85 percent of the ship's passengers come to Port Canaveral from at least 50 miles away and many stay at local hotels and eat at area restaurants, helping boost our local economy.

PORT CANAVERAL TOPS LIST FOR BEACH  
RENOURISHMENT FUNDS

Canaveral Port Authority expects to receive $100,500 in grant funding from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for beach renourishment. The Canaveral Harbor Inlet Sand Bypass Project earned top state ranking for 2014/15 inlet management funding.

Since 1992, the Port has spent more than $2 million, along with more than $2.2 million in state funds and more than $45 million from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on sand bypass and related beach restoration projects to restore shorelines and dunes along the City of Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach to their original 1950's condition.

The project has been recognized nationally and internationally as among the most successful inlet sand management programs in the world.

TV'S PARKER BROTHERS MOVE TO PORT

The unique cars, motorcycles and off-road vehicles produced by Parker Brothers, Shanon and Marc, previously starred in a SyFy channel cable television show and now are part of plans for an hour-long weekly show on the History Channel that would be filmed at Port Canaveral.

Once renovations are completed during the next few months, Parker Brothers Concepts will move into a 20,000-square foot facility at 730 Mullet Road, which will include generous work space and a public showroom. At no charge, visitors to the shop will be able to view finished vehicles on display and also watch the team at work through large observation windows during the filming of the television show.

The team plans to take inspiration from their new location to diversify into boats.
