A couple of options. Taxi from the port of Baltimore to Dulles will run approx $65-100. Depending on traffic you are about an hour from Dulles. BWI airport runs a shuttle to Dulles. You want to look into taking a taxi from the port to BWI airport then transfer to the shuttle bus to Dulles. Third option is to hire a car service to take you from the port to Dulles. If you dock at 0900, you will be off the ship by 11am, an hour drive to Dulles; you have plenty of time to spare. http://www.bwiairport.com/ground_tra...d_private_car/

Yep, you need a cab or a car service. There are no other humane ways to do it. The only other thing is you might call SuperShuttle and see if they can help you out. Public transportation is essentially nil.

Had to sell the limo because of gas prices.

Is it absolutely out of the question to switch to a flight out of BWI? That's a fairly easy cab ride from the ship.

AR...BWI does not offer non stop to Paris (CDG)...we would have to connection thru JFK and you know that's the worse place to connect thru so we can go non stop on Air France (and get my Delta miles)...the downside is that on the way home we have to take the limo back to BWI and then connect home on Southwest

funny..the round trip from New Orleans to Paris (with a connection in PHL) is cheaper then round trip IAD-CDG by a couple hundred dollars, but rather then fly back to New Orleans and then fly out the next day, we decided to go out of IAD

just in case we run into a problem, we will come visit you and check out your little "tv room"
