In 1969 the Port of Key West received its first regularly scheduled cruise ship; it was the SUNWARD.  She called on Key West once a month.  The Sunward moored at either the Navy's Mole or Pier B facility.

Records indicate that between 1969 and 1984 the Port of Key West received 266 port calls.  In 1999 fiscal year 415 cruise ships called on the Port of Key West allowing 597,009 passengers to experience Key West's charm, many making return trips to complete their Key West experience.

It wasn't until 1984 that the City Commission, at the recommendation of City staff, made improvements to the City-owned Mallory Dock, making it a full cruise ship docking facility.

The Port of Key West now consists of three docking facilities:  Mallory Square Dock, Pier B (privately owned) and the Navy Mole (soon to be transferred to the City of Key West).
