Royal Caribbean International will homeport the 1,800-passenger Splendour of the Seas to Tampa this coming winter, replacing the smaller Empress of the Seas - the former Nordic Empress - which sailed from Tampa during the winter months over the past two years. Splendour of the Seas will sail seven-night western Caribbean itineraries from November through April 2005. Port calls will include George Town, Grand Cayman; Costa Maya, Mexico; Belize City, Belize; and Cozumel, Mexico. Passenger traffic at Tampa has grown by more than 230 percent over the past five years, according to port officials.
