The days of sailing out of just one of a few ports are over....many more choices of ports are now available sailing out of many different parts of the USA. Sailing out of the closest port will definitely help cut cruise costs. Same with airports - the closer, the better!

Good thinkin!

Some of the ports are apparently not profitable.

I was thrilled when Celebrity did their Zenith out of Jacksonville, as Jacksonville is only an 11 hour drive for me as opposed to Miami which was two days in a car.

I found out, though, that Celebrity is pulling out of Jacksonville once this run is over because it is not profitable for them. That only leaves Carnival there. Wonder how they are doing??
