We're really excited for our Mexican Riviera cruise in 2011 over New Year's Eve.....but are trying to pick the lesser of two evils getting there. We're on the east coast, so have to travel to LA with the time difference. Either we fly out the day of embarkation.....early in the morning, get there around 10:30 LA time and get on the boat.....or we travel the day before which, unfortunately, is Christmas Day. If this were almost any other day it would be a no brainer, but traveling on Christmas is a little bit of a bummer. True, it'll probably be really uncrowded.....but, well, it's Christmas Day. On the other hand, with the snow that happened this year and the travel delays through Atlanta, we could miss the boat if we try flying the morning of the cruise. Then....if we travel Christmas evening, we can get there around 10:30 pm which will be 1:30 am our time. Do we just stay at an airport hotel and get a car to the port in the morning or suck it up, get to the port that night and get a hotel close to the port? Decisions, decisions. Can't someone just pixie dust me to the boat?
