We didn't receive a map. The tour guide always seemed to be pushing. She kept talking about the "Apple-O" mission. I finally caught on that she was trying to say Apollo.

We took the unguided tour with shuttle transportation provided by the ship. We had plenty of time to see the things we wanted, but then again, we had done some research on what we wanted to see in advance.

Kennedy Space Center tour was excellent. Half a day is not enough time to see it all. But it was very nicely arranged. A lot to see and a lot to learn. Our bus tour guy from the tour company was excellent. Highly recommend this excursion.

Kennedy space center was very good. We went about 15 years ago, but is all new. You should go again.

So much to see and do that it is hard to complete in one day. We really enjoyed the Atlantis exhibit and the space simulator. Can't wait to come back again!

Great tour but not enough time to see everything leisurely even though the park was not very large. If you really want to get the full experience, need at least another hour.

On the special tour we took, the guide was very knowledgeable about the space program, but he assumed that we had a certain level of knowledge that not all of us possessed.

Large buses. Friendly personnel. Loved the time and experience at Kennedy BUT we were not able to see everything. Would definitively want more time to enjoy it.

My husband and son had to wait two hours on the shuttle bus due to heavy traffic because of a rocket launching that day. The center shut the gates and was not allowing people in once they reached capacity unless prebooked through a cruiseline. We luckily booked through RC and they were able to get in. It was worth the wait though they wished they had more time to see everything. They got to see the rocket launch, and were able to see some of the bigger things that they wanted to see. They want to go back again! Read Less

We had booked the Kennedy Space Shuttle shuttle but were not informed in advance that the trip would be extended 1.5 hours due to a space shuttle launch that day. We arrived on the bus and were told to "be patient." The 30 minute bus ride turned into 2.5 hours on a bus with no bathroom. They would not allow kids to get off who needed to use the restroom, the entire bus was begging the driver and tour guide to go back to the ship and they refused. Security removed a man from the bus while waiting to enter the space center who was arguing for his daughter to be allowed to get off the bus to use the restroom. Once we arrived at the space center, the crowds were so massive, we literally waited in line the entire time, did one activity, food lines were ridiculous. When we returned, many people requested refunds, we lost an entire day of the cruise, did not see anything at the space center, the cruise line did not fully disclose all the relevant information. We were refunded 30% of the fee, no exceptions. Read Less

I wasn't aware that there was a rocket launch that day. Took 3 hours to get there. Literally. Luckily our bus had a bathroom. All the others weren't so lucky. Place was at capacity but we got to see the launch.

We chose the unguided tour and had a blast. We got to look at what we wanted to at our leisure. The excursion lasted for about 5-6 hours. There was A LOT at the center though. We didn't get a chance to explore the whole place but what we did see was fantastic. I strongly recommend this excursion if you like history or was ever fascinated with astronomy and space travel.

Fabulous tour! It was 8 hours long. Our guide has been doing it for 20 years and she was a wealth of knowledge. Totally amazed at how large the rockets are!
