One of America's most popular cruise departure ports is Tampa, Florida. This warm Gulf Coast port offers year round cruises with enough variety that there's something to fit anyone's budget.
Cruises out of Tampa are an excellent start to a vacation, and there's a lot more to do. Stay a few extra days to enjoy the other attractions in the area. Hit the rides at Busch Gardens or see the undersea world at the Florida Aquarium. Go to historic Ybor City for hot Cuban sandwiches and hand-rolled cigars.
Cruises to Cuba were available throughout the year until prohibited by the government. Some included an overnight stay at Havana, which allowed you to explore the famous nightlife.
