I hear you. We were just on the Dream and it took over an hour for my husband (who dropped us at the Port and we checked him aboard) to get the shuttle from Budget to the Port. And then, they dropped 1 or 2 people off at the other boats before bringing 20 people to DCL.

While we were waiting for him, I drafted a strong letter to Budget, providing them with an assessment of the situation and offering that, if they did nothing to correct things (which have steadily become worse over the past 4-5 years), they wouldn't need to correct things, as they would have no customers left about which to worry.

When we got back to Port and to Budget, everything was smooth as clockwork. Best experience there, ever. I'm a firm believer in you have to let someone higher up know that a problem exists before they can fix it.

Speaking of the whole car rental thing, I love what DCL has done by providing special waiting lines for car rental near where the DCL buses come in. So much better than the mass confusion as the front of the terminal we had experienced all these years.
