|Description||The home port of the vessel (if different from "Ship registry="):
- For civilian ships, this will be the primary port from which the ship operates (i.e. for cruise ships, the port in which cruises start and end). Port of registry (the one painted on the stern) should be listed in "Ship registry=".
- For warships, this will be the ship's assigned naval base.
- When multiple entries are made in this field, include year ranges.
- For ships that change their home port on a regular basis (more than once every couple of years), consider ignoring this field and elaborating in the body of the article.
