Baltimore Draws Big Spenders For Cruises

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Carnival Cruise Line’s biggest spenders depart from the Port of Baltimore, the state’s top ports official is saying.

James White, executive director of the Maryland Ports Administration, told lawmakers Friday that the city’s cruise
business is “booming” and that Carnival has said the most money it reaps aboard ships are on those departing from Baltimore.

The Port of Baltimore is scheduled for 112 cruise trips this year and has already planned 95 cruises for next year, White told members of the Senate’s budget committee. Carnival began booking cruises from Baltimore in 2009.
