“Many things to do; a city where walking is easy; the trolley is a simple 20-minute ride to the border and outlet mall; lots of museums and a well-developed waterfront,” said one reviewer in choosing San Diego.

The recognition for 2018 was part of Cruise Critic’s annual Cruisers’ Choice Destination Awards, which ranked the top five ports as follows:

  1. Quebec City, Canada
  2. Halifax, Canada
  3. San Diego
  4. Vancouver, Canada
  5. Portland, Maine

The Port of San Diego is projected to see a 12 percent increase in calls this year, in part because of the return of Carnival Cruise Line.
