Speaking of cruises, did you know Baltimore is becoming a year-round cruise port? After dropping anchor in Maryland a number of years ago, several cruise lines pulled out leaving Maryland cruise fans bereft. But now these same cruise lovers are going to be in heaven in 2009, as several cruise lines have been lured back to Baltimore. Earlier this year, Carnival announced that the Carnival Pride would offer cruises from South Locust Point in September 2009. Then just last week, the governor's office announced that the Celebrity Cruises ship, the Celebrity Mercury, will begin sailing from Baltimore next November.
