Florida Matters: The Future of the Cruise Industry in Tampa Bay

Jul 22, 2014

Tampa's cruise industry could be heading into rough waters. Cruise ships are getting bigger, but the Sunshine Skyway Bridge isn't. A new study by the Florida Department of Transportation looks at three options: build a taller bridge, build a new cruise facility west of the Skyway, or do nothing.

We discuss these options, and hear the opinions of passengers just returning from a seven-day cruise aboard the Carnival Legend at Cruise Terminal #2 at Tampa's Channelside.
