Default Where does Carnival dock in Key West?

Is there one particular area or dock that Carnival uses in Key West? Thanks in advance.

2 docks are used.

The Westin Pier and Naval Annex pier. I will dig up a map. Just a sec.

When I was on the Imagination (Dec/08) we docked at the navel port. They had a conch train that took you to downtown and gave you a ittle briefing and pointed out landmarks along the way.

Go here:

Carnival uses the Westin Pier and Navy Mole Pier. The Navy pier will require passengers to be transported from the ship to town and back via trolley. You get dropped off & picked up at the Old Town Trolley ticket booth area.

This site typically shows which pier your ship will dock at:

Thanks tbjl24 - you're alright for a Rays fan! We'll be in Key West on the Destiny on Friday 3/5. According to that website you linked, the Destiny will be the only ship in port that day. Not sure if that makes a difference with where we will dock. I'm just trying to check travel times for our parasailing excursion that we're booking independently. Want to make sure we have time for some shopping afterwards. The place we're booking is 1 block off of Duval so I think we should be ok! Looks like everything we want to see/do is near the docks that are used. Again - thanks for your help.

Thanks! I am assuming a Sox fan? At least we have a common hatred of the evil empire!

This is another cool site:
http://www.keywestcity.com/departmen...asp?fDD=13-192

Your ship will be at the Westin Pier, based on the calendar.
B = Westin Pier
OM = Outer Mole
M = Mallory Square( I think only Royal and Celebrity dock here)

Looks like Conquest will be docking at pier B, aka the Westin dock. You will be the only ship in port according to the the below website. BTW, I hate the term "please advise"

I was in Key West for 2 weeks at Christmas. The ships are close to everything. It's an easy walk to the major sites and there are trolley tours that show you most everything in old Key West. I've been there on a cruise ship too. It's a great city to party in, see museums and historic houses, or to find keepsakes. We just love it.

Thanks. My apologies, didn't mean to offend; although I really don't understand why.

I was wondering about that myself. Must be a new PC offense.

Actually, after seeing some of Mr. I'm Offended's other posts, that person doesn't seem very happy. On one thread someone was saying they are excited about their upcoming cruise and that person's response was "so what" - soooooooooooooooooo, there ya go.
