ebEric, first of all congratulations on the addition to your family. Welcome to CM also. As far as transportation is concerned you can purchase travel vouchers from the cruiseline that will get you to where you want to go. There will also be shuttles available at the airport, the hotel and the pier. We usually go with the shuttles it may be cheaper than the cruseline transfers. By all means use a certified cruise specialist but at the same time you can go into RCI's website and plug in your dates and see your options. This will give you a better Idea on what to talk about with your cruise specialist. Enjoy.
