American Cruise Restart Homeports By the Numbers

With the uptick in the cruise restart, the U.S. homeports across the country are welcoming the cruise ships back.

As more vessels are reactivated, a total of 18 ports will be homeports for cruise ships between August and December.  

With seven ships currently in service, Miami leads the way and will see up to 27 seven vessels returning through December.

Two other homeports in Florida follow, Port Everglades with 20 ships, and Port Canaveral, with 13 vessels.

On the West Coast, Los Angeles and Seattle are going to be seeing the biggest number of cruise ships this year, with San Diego completing the top 3.
