I thought I had read that on the Navigator's but also I thought I recently saw they needed to be booked 2weeks before the cruise begins. I am thinking now that those transfers were the airport to port ones. Ah well, out TA is on to it for us now so it should be all set very soon. Thanks Alan.

Our first and only trip down from San Francisco to LA(late September 1996 or '97 I think) we set off in bright sunshine from SF and enjoyed the journey until we reached Carmel and then the fog rolled in. All the way down we never saw the wonderful views. Once it did go the weather wasn't too good due to the remnants of a hurricane which was a surprise, so kind of dull with rough seas. The surfers loved it though.

Ever since we have been meaning to do it all again and hope to see the views but so far we haven't managed it and I doubt we will now as this is probably our last trip to the West Coast USA.

So I just wanted to throw this out to everyone. If today was any indication of how things are going to go in the world of U.S. air travel, pack a lot of patience. Here at LAX we experienced an average of 3 hour delays and a lot of cancelations. I witnessed quite a few melt downs tonight. Please remember, it is not the airlines fault. Please do not take it out on the people at the airport. Contact your congress people. It is my hope that things will improve over the next two weeks before our great voyage.

Water Taxis in Cabo?

I'd like to at least put my feet in the water at either Puerto Vallarta or Cabo - so I can say I've been in the Caribbean (Castaway Cay) and the Pacific within a two-week period!

We've got a tour planned for PV that takes up most of the day, but have no plans in Cabo. I was looking around the Cruise Critic board and several people have mentioned the water taxis - wanted to know if anyone here had experience with them and/or could provide specifics on where they are located and what beaches they go to.

Thanks!

In Cabo when you get off the tender a very short walk will bring you to the water taxi . you can take a water taxi directly across from the ship to the beach. "the office" is one of them. As long as you are mobile the water taxi work great because you do have to step on and off of them into water. We walked a little further to the back of the area and took a real taxi to the same beach and got to see a little of the city. We went to Miilgans which is right next to "TheOffice" played in the sand and the water, had lunch and sang with the music. You can see the ship directly across from the beach. Loved Cabo.

WiFi in ports

Has anybody done research on the availability free wifi in the various ports? I'm afraid of going through complete withdrawal over 14 days.

Thanks for the info Alan. What is causing the problem? I know for those entering the USA there are long long lines at Immigration these days and I have heard of it taking 3 hours to get out of Orlando airport for international visitors!! But it sounds like something is disrupting domestic flights too from what you say. With only doing domestic flights this time as we are sailing over I was hoping for smoother exits from the airports!! Mind you the USA immigration coming in on a cruise line can be maddening. We in the UK make it much easier for you to enter the UK than the other way round. I wish they wouldn't treat us all as criminals and worse just because we want to come over for a holiday.

Thanks for the info - so, we should plan to wear our water shoes on the taxi & carry our sneakers, right?

Maybe we'll do a regular taxi one way and the water taxi the other... or is it close enough (2 miles or less) to walk back to the dock?

Pretty much. Think of it as unpaid, forced vacation (holiday).

Yes you are correct. The Federal Agency that controls our sky's, the FAA, has mandated that every two weeks x amount of controllers take a mandatory day off without pay. So with less eyes watching the sky delays will happen. That's why I sent out my post. It's not the airlines fault most likely that a flight is delayed these days it's the governments fault. That's why I was asking people to stay calm and not take the frustration on the poor front line people. I saw enough of that yesterday. One was so bad they had to call Airport police.

Thanks, Alan. Hope ONT will be easier. Regardless, we're prepared to "hurry up and wait" all the way to FLL.
