Long Description:
Tampa's homeport cruise lines include Carnival, Holland America, and Royal Caribbean. We arrived just as the Carnival Legend was getting ready to disembark and snapped several photos before the exodus began.

From the Tampa Port Authority website: "The Port of Tampa is home to a vibrant and diverse traffic base, which moves efficiently through an extensive array of terminal facilities encompassing container, bulk, break bulk, ro-ro, project cargoes and cruise passengers, with one million square feet of warehousing and cold storage facilities. Our strategic location provides the most direct route to Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean and the region's rapidly expanding load center hubs providing worldwide services. With a main shipping channel depth of 43 feet, Tampa is also the closest full service U.S. port to the Panama Canal."
Name of the Cruise Ship if one is in 'Port'.: Carnival Legend
