Port Canaveral’s Cruise Terminal 5 reopened this past weekend hosting Carnival Valor following a $48.3 million transformation that will allow the terminal to handle larger and modern ships. 

The improvements include an expanded terminal, a longer 120-foot longer pier, a new 1,044-space parking garage, and new mobile passenger boarding bridges. Carnival Sunshine also will berth at Terminal 5.

Renovation of the 1991-built terminal began in August to allow Cruise Terminal 5 to handle ships carrying up to 3500 passengers, up from its previous capacity of 2,500.

The projects involved a majority of local workers consisting of 37 companies with a construction crew of 500 on the terminal and 50 companies with a crew of 450 on the parking garage for a total of 265,000 hours with zero injuries.
