Harry, you're right. We do need more cruises out of SoCal. I get so damned sick of flying across the country (or further) to get on a cruise ship. Most people on CruiseMates, from what I see, are more than happy to repeat ad nauseum trips to the Caribbean. The world is bigger than that. The problem is bigger than that.
First, CruiseMates needs to look at trips that are in other than the Carib or the Mexican Riv. There's a whole world out there.
Second, cruise lines such as Princess and Carnival and other lines need to get involved.
Third, I can't find where the new "posibilities" are posted.
