Is there any way to find out where our ship will dock in KW? We will be on Valor on Feb 13 and was wondering if there is a site that says where the ships dock. There will be 4 ships in port that day, so lookout for a busy place! Thanks for any info.

according to the port website, i see this for feb 13:

Ryndam (M) 1200-1800
Valor (B) 0800-1700

the M and B is most likely the pier the ship will be docked at

It this next year? When I look at the port loads for Feb 2012, I don't see the Valor in KW but doing the western caribbean not stopping in KW.

Yes, we are sailing from Miami on the 12th and will be in KW on the 13th for the day. Sorry, not sure what you are talking about M and B. I just read somewhere where they sometimes dock in town at Mallory Square or at the naval base where you have to be shuttled into town. So I was just wondering if there was a way to find out. Thanks

Here is a link to the Key West cruise ship calender. Pier B is preferable. Pier M (Mole) is the shuttle pier at the Navy facility.

FYI - Pier A is Mallory Square. Only small ships can dock there.

That dock at Key West is called the (outer mole) which is the dock at the naval base where you have to take a trolley from the dock to I believe they drop you off near duval street. hope this helps

Laceydog, I was wrong.
The website has the Valor docking at Pier "B" (not the navy pier), which looks like you can walk right into town.

Have fun in Key West!!

DH and I actually just got married in Key West about 4 months ago. The port is right by a parking lot, which is where we parked quite a bit. One day, we walked over to see the water out of curiosity, and we noticed a cruise ship. DH was in the Navy and after seeing a ship in port in KW, he got pretty excited, which is why we decided to have our honeymoon on a cruise. This way he gets to relax and enjoy his time on the ship rather than having to work long hours.
