It has been some time since my last cruise, but the addiction is hitting hard. I've been planning (way) ahead for when my daughter (she will be 8 months old on Monday the 29th) would be old enough to appreciate the cruise expierence. During my planning, I was thinking about how far I would want to drive versus flying to the port of embarcation. Before, I always flew to the port city, but I lived in Denver at the time, so driving wasn't pratical unless I went to Galveston. Now, I live in Cleveland, and New York City, Baltimore, Norfolk, and even Charleston, SC are a day's drive away, and Tampa and Port Canaveral are a day and a half, enough time to arrive at the port, board, and eat lunch before the lifeboat drill. My question is how far would you want to drive for a cruise? Thanks for your help.
