TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Saying Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings isn't one of the bigger cruise lines, Governor Ron DeSantis said if smaller cruise lines want to leave the state, their void will be filled. DeSantis made his remarks at a news conference Thursday.

Miami-based Norwegian is the third largest cruise line in the world and has ports of departure in Miami, Port Canaveral and Tampa.

It also makes stops in Key West. But Norwegian has said it might move departures elsewhere over a law that bans businesses from asking for proof of a coronavirus vaccination.
