The Right Stuff

The Right Stuff

It seems that since the beginning of recorded history, human beings have looked at the stars in the sky and dreamed of one day exploring the universe. Throughout the month of April, you have multiple opportunities to meet with people who have actually ventured into space. The Kennedy Space Center, which is only about 35 minutes from the International Palms Resort, features an astronaut of the day encounter that is included with your admission to the museum. This month alone you can meet Dr. John-David Bartoe who completed one shuttle mission, International Space Station veteran Don Thomas, engineer Bob Cenker, Challenger shuttle veteran Jon McBride, and Wendy Lawrence who has served on both Mir and the International Space Station. At the Astronauts Encounter event, you are welcome to ask lots of questions and even take pictures with these real-life American heroes. Of course, this unique opportunity is available year round with a rotating cast of astronauts.

“Enjoyed Our Pre-Cruise Loft!!!”
We stayed here before our cruise with as a group of four friends and had a great time!... We really enjoyed the tiki bar -- the rum buckets were great! Live music was also nice on Friday night. There were quite a few family friendly amenities and the property was right next to the beach. Would stay again!
