The #1 Website for Cruises from Miami, Port Canaveral, Tampa and More

Tampa Cruises

While serving about one-third the amount of passengers as larger ports on Florida’s Atlantic coast, the Port of Tampa is an ideal place to sail from — especially if you are looking for convenience.

With three cruise terminals, the port serves four different cruise lines, offering mostly 4-7 day trips to western Caribbean ports in Honduras, Belize, Mexico and more. With less traffic, you’ll likely find the port easier to navigate than the larger ones in Miami or Port Canaveral. Meanwhile, the port offers plenty of on-site parking.

If you are arriving a day or two before your cruise (or staying a day or two after), you’ll find plenty to do in Tampa. Attractions includes Busch Gardens, casino gambling, NHL hockey, MLB baseball, the Florida Aquarium, and the Museum of Science and Industry.

If you’re flying in for your cruise, the Tampa airport is less than 10 miles from the port. Even better, Orlando is about 1.5 hours away, giving you more options for finding a cheaper flight.
