Three cruise lines offer departures from Tampa: Carnival, Holland America, and Royal Caribbean. Some popular cruises from Tampa include the Western Caribbean, Cayman Islands, Belize, Costa Maya, and Cozumel, Mexico.

For example, Carnival Cruise Line's new 2,600-passenger ship, Sensation, had to be custom-built to fit under the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.
