Port Canaveral has six cruise terminals, though only 3 are in continual use for multi-day cruises. They are terminals 5, 8 and 10 which are located on the north western shore of the port. Terminal 2 hosts a gambling cruise ship. Cruise terminals 3 and 4 are not utilized often.

A Side (North) Terminals 5, 8 and 10

Cruise terminals 5, 8 and 10 are on the north east or A side, by Charles M Rowland Drive.  These more modern cruise terminal buildings possess larger quays with the ability to berth the largest cruise ships, and all 3 can cope with 3000 or more passengers. Cruise Terminal 5 is an attractive 2 story triangular shaped complex, with a thirty foot tall hall filled with verdant greenery and cascading waterfalls. Embarking cruisers are processed on the top floor, debarking cruisers on the bottom. Cruise Terminal 8 was constructed for Disney Cruise Line, and is an appealing modern terminal with an impressive 80 foot high glass entrance lobby. Cruise Terminal 10 offers an efficient passenger embarking/debarking system, with completely automatic baggage processing. Quay lengths are as follows, terminal 5 970ft, terminal 8 1000ft, terminal 10 1100ft. Each terminal building provides the necessary facilities like restrooms, cab rank, ATMs, pay phones, vending machines and check-in desks. A big parking area for the use of passengers is situated next to each terminal building.

South Side Terminals 2,3 and 4

Cruise terminal buildings 2, 3 and 4 are on the B or south docks, next to George King Boulevard.  These terminals were among Port Canaveral's first facilities for the cruise lines, and each has a capacity of around 1800 people.  A single jetty 2150 ft long is shared by the 3 terminals giving the capacity to berth two large or three medium-length ships. Beside each terminal there’s a parking area.
