Embarking on a cruise vacation by driving to a port -- even if the closest one is several hours away -- can be more convenient and less costly than flying. And, it's doable for a whole lot of North Americans. "It's estimated that approximately half of Americans live within a day's drive of a Carnival homeport," Vance Gulliksen, spokesperson for Carnival Cruise Lines, told Cruise Critic. If you'd like to discover which cruise homeports are near you, check our list, sorted by region.
