Savannah liking what it sees in Charleston cruise ship success

Image by Flickr user MMWM Our little sister city has got the feeling it can be home to bigger tourist ships than this.

There's been a lot of chatter about the success of Charleston going after cruise ship business, so much so that the interest of the ports in Savannah has been aroused.

The city that's been rather successfully eating the Port of Charleston's cargo lunch is now expressing interest to be a cruise line destination, too. 

Read about the development over at The Savannah Morning News.

The impact of cruise ship tourism has been noted before, as they're the type of visitors that likely have not yet taken a carriage ride, seen Fort Sumter, and so on.

And a hat tip to the Charleston Regional Business Journal for spotting this one.
