The new port will be on the south end of the port where Cruise Terminal 3 now stands. The significantly smaller terminal will be demolished. The new terminal will be able to handle the largest ships now is service. Construction will begin in the summer of 2018. It will be operational in the fall of 2019. Terminal 3 is used mainly by those ships making port-of-call stops in Port Canaveral rather than for ships based here.
