How Hopeful for Cruising out of TPA in January


Recommended Posts

Does the Port of Tampa intend to open for cruise ships by January? Some time ago I read that Tampa was not going to have cruises start until April but I do not know the source and the accuracy. Any thoughts?

Royal Caribbean has indicated that their first cruises will be just a few ships on short itineraries primarily to their private islands. Once those go well they will add more ships and longer itineraries, but it will take several months to have all ships sailing again. I would not expect cruises from Tampa until March or April at the earliest, assuming the first cruises sail in December or January, which is questionable at this point.

Anyone's guess.  Short cruises mostly consist of Cozumel and back.  Before the pandemic that got old but for a restart it's a pretty good itinerary 😉 

 

I just worry that Tampa can only take small ships.

 

My vote is no. Does Tampa even have a summer season scheduled 🤔

Yes, during the big shuffle a couple of weeks ago, they pulled Brilliance from Miami and are moving her to Tampa for the summer.  Indy replaced Brilliance in Miami.  Brilliance is doing 7 night western itineraries out of Tampa.

That may be first ship into Tampa
