After years of hoping and planning, the Canaveral Port Authority is making final preparations for the arrival on November 5, 2016 of the Oasis of the Seas. Weighing in at a whopping 225,000 gross tons, the Oasis of the Seas will call the new Cruise Terminal 1 its new homeport.
In anticipation of getting an Oasis-class ship, the Port Authority built a $104.6 million 188,000 square foot terminal and 1007-vehicle parking facility specifically to accommodate this class of ship. The 5,400 passenger Oasis of the Seas, will replace the 3,634 passenger Freedom of the Seas from its long-time home at Port Canaveral.

As has become a ritual at Port Canaveral when a new ship takes up residence, the Port Authority has invited the community to join in a Sail-a-Bration to be held at adjacent Jetty Park, on November 13 from 3-6pm. Well-wishers will be on hand to bid Oasis of the Seas bon voyage as she sails from her new homeport bound for a seven-night Caribbean cruise.
Admission to the Jetty Park event is complimentary and festivities will begin at 2pm. Guests are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donation to the Sharing Center of Central Brevard.
