See building faster ships to cover that LA - Hawaii route in a week is even difficult given the 2,500 or so nautical miles between the two. That's pretty much the reason why it takes roughly 4 sea days to get there alone. I mean in theory it could be possibly to cut down by half the number of sea days, but even then it barely leaves any room for port time. You'd hit maybe one island max.

As for the Mexican Riviera... it's in shambles. Gangs and drugs have it completely broken down (hence why the lines are fleeing). And mass murders every other week doesn't really help the case either. Most news organizations have been heavily covering it as Rebecca said...
