FABULOUS, we did a pre and post cruise stay over in Tampa's Ybor City Historic District. Lots of Cuban influence restaurants, bars, shops and traditional cuban style cigar shops on and in the 7th Avenue part of the district. You need to take the free electric street car that runs from Ybor to downtown Tampa, its about 2.5 miles and takes about a 1 hour RT ride. ...

Embarkation is the worst in the history of cruises and that is due to the poor antiquated port set up. HINT: get there after 1PM and you won't stand in line for 2 to 3 hours. ...

Beautiful city. 20 min. port access from TPA (airport) Uber/Lyft gave good access. Don't pay $21 pp for cruise shuttle on disembark to TPA. Shuttle vans available for $8 pp (cash) from private vendor once you get off the ship. ...

Too slow. Poor area for sitting (wheelchair access)=uncomfortable, sunny exposure...not enough pushers/staff for wheel chairs nor enough intake personnel to expedite the embarkation process. ...

Easy port to cruise out of with decent hotels nearby; close to Ybor City (but don't try to walk from Channelside to Ybor - very dodgy areas in between). ...

We arrived in Tampa the night before and stayed at the Embassy Suites Downtown/Convention Center. The hotel was great and the area around it felt safe and inviting. They had a stay and park deal, which worked out just fine. We could have taken the trolley to the port, or even walked, but we overpacked and took a LYFT instead. Worked out great! We left Tampa just as the rain cleared and had a ...
