Norfolk opened this state-of-the-art cruise terminal, the Decker Half Moone Center in 2007. This facility is in the heart of a revitalized Downtown Norfolk – within walking distance of more than 2,000 hotel rooms, a one million-square-foot shopping complex, world class museums and a waterfront event/concert park.
We have great neighbors. Virginia Beach. Williamsburg. Jamestown. Along with Norfolk, these nationally-recognized destinations create a year-round leisure and travel market.
For visitors driving to the area, Norfolk is less than two hours from Richmond, approximately three hours from Northern Virginia/Washington D.C. and three hours from Raleigh. The region is within easy fly/drive access of two-thirds of the U.S. population. Norfolk International Airport – which hosts most major airline carriers and offers 200 flights daily – is only a fifteen-minute drive from the cruise terminal.
Norfolk is anchored in the southeastern corner of Virginia, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Chesapeake Bay. Situated so close to open sea, vessel casinos and duty-free shops typically open within one hour after setting sail.
