I wish there was an area on this site dedicated to various ports of origination. After my last cruise I am going to factor that in as much as the itinerary...

Here is something interesting on Miami:

Planning, security top Miami priorities
Planning for growth and security were singled out as the two top priorities for the Port of Miami during a cruise round table at last week’s port summit.
Some 250 port customers and stakeholders attended the day-long summit which included brainstorming sessions on various sectors. Cruise round table participants debated issues ranging from berthing to badging. Bottom line, they decided: the port’s top priority should be planning to accommodate growth. ‘There’s no end of growth. Cruise lines are building a lot of ships,’ said Mike Kaczmarek, vp Carnival Ports.

When the Port of Miami’s 2020 Master Plan was created several years ago, it envisioned terminal capacity to handle seven cruise ships simultaneously on the north side. But vessel sizes are ballooning to the point that only six ships will fit, said cruise round table moderator Bruno-Elias Ramos, president of BEA International. (Additional smaller vessels can use the port’s shallower south side.)

Possibilities for handling growth could include two-ship-a-day berthing, pre-clearance at a remote location and mid-week departures. Cruise executives were not enthusiastic about mid-week sailings, however Charles Hendrick of CH2MHill pointed out that five-five-four rotations in other ports have been ‘wildly successful.’

the Port Chat forums have been established for discussions covering not only ports of call "enroute" but also (dis)embarkation ports.
