For cruises out of PC people typically fly into Orlando or sometimes Melbourne. Ft Lauderdale is 3 hours or so away. Orlando is only about 50 miles from the port and has more flights than Melbourne.

Depending on where you are flying from, you may find cheaper rates into/out of Sanford (SFB) It's listed as Orlando/Sanford, and is within an hour of PC.

put Jacksonville on your list too. 2:30 drive or so. A bit far, but I have saved a lot going into there before.

Also, you can fly into one airport and out of another. Avis and some other rental companies don't have drop off charges in central Florida

The only domestic airline flying into Sanford is Allegiant.
