Four cruise lines used to have cruises out of Philadelphia. Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean International were the two large ship lines serving the port. American Cruise Lines and ACCL were the two small ship lines that sailed from here.
Norwegian Cruise Line has "Freestyle Cruise" ships, which means freedom of choice. Eat in the main restaurant, or one of the many alternative eateries. Enjoy the casino, theater and pools. And Norwegian has a relaxed dress code.
Royal Caribbean Cruises are excellent for young active people. The ships are innovative and feature things like their famous climbing walls.
Carnival Cruises are the fun ships. They attract young couples and families with small children.
American Cruise Lines small cruise ships are made in America and staffed by Americans. The modern ships cruise protected inland waterways from New England to the Chesapeake Bay, Florida, and the Mississippi River.
