Cruising is often thought of as an easy way to sample a smorgasbord of destinations and cultures in a single trip. Cruise often enough, though, and you'll discover there are ports you long to visit over and over. We put together a list of these "super ports" across the globe that are easy to reach because they are serviced by multiple cruise lines and have more to see and do than you can squeeze into a single cruise.
1. Key West
Key West might surprise you with all it has to offer -- most of it only a short walk from the cruise pier. Besides the obvious water sports fun (which you can certainly enjoy over and over), there are historical attractions like the Ernest Hemingway Home, Mel Fisher Maritime Museum, Key West Lighthouse and the Harry S. Truman Little White House. Shopping, eating and drinking on Duval Street top most cruise visitor's lists, but if you wander a bit off the tourist track, you'll find an even more eclectic array of choices. Another option for a repeat visit to Key West is to rent a car, pack a picnic and leave the crowds behind with a scenic drive into the Lower Keys.
