Royal Caribbean International will sail two ships from the Port of Tampa for the first time in 12 years.
Starting in November 2014, the Vision of the Seas will do seven-day cruises, joining the Brilliance of the Seas, which already does four- and five-day itineraries.
The Vision's Western Caribbean itinerary will include stops in Grand Cayman, Costa Maya, Cozumel, Roatan or Belize.
It will be the sixth ship homeported in Tampa, and with its addition, port officials estimate they will process 1 million passengers in 2015. Follow Tom Stieghorst on Twitter @tstravelweekly.
