Jaxport home of Carnival Elation cruises. Roll your own luggage right up to the ship. Cruise was excellent. Friendly staff, great food, awesome entertainment. Our first cruise with Carnival but definitely not our last !!!

Can't get much closer or easier than parking here. It is not covered but it is paved and a very short walk to the ship. We had to wait to get into the lot until 10:30. That was the only real drawback.

This terminal is for a single ship so it will not have the organization, space, amenities that the larger terminals have. Some staff are nice, some grumpy. My biggest complaint/issue is that they don't gave enough Customs agents to clear passengers when you are disembarking...More

We sailed out of Jacksonville Port for a 4-day cruise on Carnival Elation. This was our 2nd cruise from here, but first time parking at the port. We paid $17 per day to park and it was worth the money. The port is fenced in,...More

This is one of the best cruise ports we have used. The carnival was the only cruise ship there. We arrived 30 minutes early and were on the boat within an hour. Easy to get luggage off and park. You pay as you go into...More

Yes this is a very small port area and very congested. If plan on dropping the family off and then parking in the parking lot, you will need to either get here early or be prepared to wait a while. When you pull into the...More

My family and I visited the JaxPort Terminal in order to embark on our first Carnival cruise aboard the Elation. Parking was expensive here and was paid upfront ($15.00/day) and the attendant was less than friendly. Had to park at the available lots that were...More
