The reason both are based in Port Everglades is infrastructure. RCI built a special terminal just for the Oasis and Allure, with 90 check-in desks, and also have a deal with Customs to staff 22 checkpoints for processing the passengers. They'd have to duplicate that in order to put a ship in NY, etc. Too much overhead, that many more employees, etc.
