And, finally, Jacksonville (and surrounding areas like St. Augustine) boasts something that few Florida ports of call can -- there's a lot of nearby history.
Where You're Docked
Jacksonville Cruise Port Address:

Ships currently dock at Jaxport's Dames Point Cruise Terminal (9810 August Drive), although the city is looking to build a new cruise port. Dames Point is about a 15-minute drive from downtown, and even closer to the airport.
Good to Know
As with any big city -- and Jacksonville is very large geographically -- use common sense to keep safe. Don't flash valuables or walk around alone at night. Locals suggest avoiding the northwestern area of the city at night.
