  1. My wife and I have cruised out of the Ports of Miami and Norfolk. We have cruised on Carnival and Royal Caribbean and liked both cruise lines. As for the experience of sailing out of a particular port, we cannot say enough about how smooth and pleasant we found Norfolk to be. We sailed on Royal Caribbean's Empress of the Seas last year. Previously, we had sailed out of Miami years ago on Carnival's Ecstasy. We will be sailing shortly out of Norfolk again with family on Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of The Seas and cannot wait! It is amazing to get dropped off in front of Nauticus, have your luggage picked up right at curbside, walk up to the welcome desk, show your papers and be on board the ship and sipping a drink overlooking the city skyline within 20 minutes! The return trip is almost as smooth. once departed from the ship, entering the area to retrieve luggage and pass Customs, we called our ride on our cell phone and were curbside loading the vehicle and heading on the interstate on our way home in 35 minutes!:)
