Cozumel, Mexico has taken the top honor of becoming the busiest cruise ship port in North America, booting Miami, Florida from their prized claim to fame.
A study of cruise ship scheduled calls for Miami, Florida from December 1, 2013 through April 30, 2014 showed only 456 scheduled cruise ship calls for the busiest season of the year. Hurricane season officially ends on November 30 every year, ensuring safe seas for the busy holiday season sailings as well as for spring break.
In comparison, Cozumel, Mexico racked up a whopping 503 scheduled cruise ship calls from December 1, 2013 through April 30, 2014, passing Miami by nearly 50 cruise ships. With an average passenger load of 2,000 cruise ship passengers per ship, an average 100,000 passengers more will come through Cozumel instead of Miami.
