What travel documents do I need?

A valid Passport or Passport Card is required to attend Holy Ship!, as you will be traveling outside of the country. Every year, several people are denied boarding due to improper or insufficient documentation. A Passport not only ensures boarding but it allows for a smooth check-in process.

What airport should I fly into and how far is it from Port Canaveral?
We recommend flying into Orlando International Airport (MCO). The drive is approximately 50 minutes, give or take depending on traffic. Plan accordingly!
Is airfare or airport transportation included in the cost of the cabin?
No. All passengers are responsible for booking their own airfare and transportation to the port.
