23,000,000 People Will Cruise in 2015.

According to Cruise Lines International Association, a trade group for the industry, 1 million more people will cruise in the year 2015 than in 2014, when 22.1 million passengers cruised world-wide. It is no surprise that the majority of those cruises originated from North American ports.

Statistics from the U.S. Department of Transportation show that for the years 2010 and 2011, 3 Florida ports were ranked the top three ports for highest number of cruise originations:

  1. Miami
  2. Ft. Lauderdale
  3. Port Canaveral

Tampa was 7th in 2011, and Jacksonville was 14th.
