I have a question that I have not been able to find a quick answer to concerning the locations of the ports where cuise ships leave from. I know San Diego is a very easy port to get to. Fly in take a quick shuttle and your there. It would be nice if there was more information provided by the cruise ship companies on this information.
I also know leaving from Galveston you have to fly to Houston and pay almost $50 for a round trip shuttle to get to the port and back.
Are there any other ports other then San Diego that are easy to get to and your not on a shuttle or bus for any length of time.
I am looking at a quick trip the middle of May and I am paying for a few other people as a gift so I am looking for an "easy" port. Not too picky on cruise. Somewhere warm would be grand and a 4 to 6 day cruise would be perfect. But after using San Diego once it sure made alot easier not having the expense and long ride to the port. It also makes flying in the same day easier. Thanks
Actually, this appears to me to be a suggestion and a question
Try posting your question on the "Ask CM's Staff" board . I think your suggestion was that the cruise lines give more information about how close the embarkation pier is to the airport. Is that right? Or did I read it wrong?
Hope you find a cruise you're happy with ,

Tampa ports are a quick ride from the airport - you could take a taxi, shutte, or pay for limo transport if you wanted to spring. Its only about a 15 minute ride (if that) and the Tampa airport is easy to get in and out of as a passenger - JMHO of course. Good luck.
