Tampa is now one of the favorite ports of departure for a growing number of cruise guests who want to experience the charm and character of this truly international city. Tampa is the home to four world-class vessels from three cruise lines: Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America, and Royal Caribbean, offering the variety of 4, 5, 7, and 14-day cruise itineraries. Carnival Legend also has 7 day cruises to the Western Caribbean.

Grandeur of the Seas, a luxury cruise liner operated by Royal Caribbean International offers 4 and 5-day cruises to Mexico and Central America. Holland America Lines’ Veendam offers passengers 7 and 14-day itineraries of the western and southern Caribbean and Mexico. The Port of Tampa’s cruise terminals offers passengers the type of service that exceeds expectations. State-of-the-art designed terminals, customer-friendly information areas all there to provide a comfortable, expedient cruise experience.

Cruises Leaving Tampa:
In-terminal parking, and Valet services are also available. Very close proximity to the interstate highway system adds to the overall convenience of cruising from Tampa.

With a wealth of family-friendly attractions and activities, it’s no wonder that Tampa’s proverbial arms are wide open to receive greater numbers of guests each year.

In close proximity to the top-rated airport in the United States, cruise passengers can take a little more time sightseeing, shopping and taking in the cultural faire of the city of Tampa. World-class shopping, a unique assortment of museums and top zoos, Busch Gardens, and the allure of Ybor City (the historic Latin Quarter pronounced “EE-BOR”), are just a few of the colorful characteristics that make Tampa one of the premier cruise port destinations in the South. Well-appointed luxury hotels and upscale dining are also very close by.

Whether your taste is a moonlit dinner in the warm evening breeze or the heart-thumping thrill of some of the fastest roller coasters around, you will find it in Tampa—and you’ll be planning your next visit to the Bay area as soon as you get back to your calendar. If you plan it just right, you might even catch a glimpse of the pirates on Gasparilla Day, as they make their annual voyage to capture Tampa Bay. Once you get a feel for the area, you will understand why they have chosen to ‘seize the Bay’ for over a hundred years.

The Port of Tampa continues to develop Channelside, a lively complex offering an enticing combination of dining, shopping and IMAX cinema, literally steps from the Port’s modern cruise terminals. Channelside’s outdoor plaza is often a venue for live music and provides a perfect setting for socializing and enjoying clear, balmy nights. Adjacent to Channelside, a stop at the Florida Aquarium is essential to those who crave the fascination of the underwater world.

Minutes from Channelside are notable tourist stops such as Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, the Museum of Science and Industry, and Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And of course who can think of sunny Florida without also considering the world’s best beaches!

For the complete cruise vacation, give Tampa a try and see what the area has for you!
