You’ve booked your cruise from the Port of Tampa and don’t know what’s next? Don’t worry! The entire Tampa Bay area is ideal for travelers for many reasons. It’s great for families, for couples going on special vacations, for friends on a quick getaway and even for those much needed, but seldom-taken solo trips!

To start, there are lots of Hilton hotels in Tampa Bay to choose from. Regardless of what type of housing experience you’re looking for, there’s a hotel that’s aptly designed to suit your needs. The Hilton hotels offer amenities like a free hotel shuttle, high-speed WiFi and full restaurants right on site.

There’s also lots of interesting and exciting things to get into like Busch Gardens, Adventure Island and the Hard Rock Casino where you can try your luck before heading off to the Caribbean. The area is also full of top-rated restaurants like Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, The Cheesecake Factory, Ocean Prime and P.F. Chang’s. If you wanted to jumpstart your vacation on a more spirited note, however, also near the hotels is World of Beer, which features dozens of tasty beers, cocktails and wine. You can even pair your drinks with a tray of their warm donut bites, which are drizzled with caramel, bacon and powdered sugar!

Tampa Bay is great for eating out, for lounging on the many beaches, for visiting the theme parks, and of course, for cruising. We’re so glad you’re taking advantage!
