Default Carnival Cruise Lines leaving Norfolk 2014

For those who use of the Port of Norfolk, Virginia, Carnival Cruise Line will be pulling out toward the end of 2014. This is being done to save costs. I have never gone on Carnival cruise but for those who do, this will leave many people, who live in the Tidewater area of Virginia, less of an opportunity to cruise "close to home".

I wonder what goes on in the minds of the board of directors on some of these cruise lines. Many people have to "stretch their budgets" in order to take a cruise. Cruising "close to home" is a big savings. Now, for many people, with the added cost of airfare or to drive a great distance to reach the ship it will close many people out of the "cruising market". In the long term, I feel that the cruise lines will "lose money" because they were "penny wise and pound foolish".
