We did the reverse, i.e., Hawaii to Ensenada last April on Infinity. From the time we boarded the bus in Ensenada to the time we arrived at San Diego a/p it took about 2 to 3 hours.

Probably closer to 2 hours except for the following problems:

1. Bus driver didn't speak English

2. Toilets on the bus did not work - and we had to stop at a service station!

3. Clearing customs at the border seemed to take forever. We had to disembark from the bus, walk through customs (just to say hi, I guess!) and back out the other side of the building to reboard the bus.

4. The bus driver didn't seem to be familiar with the traffic patterns at the airport.

Having said that - most of the drive was beautiful as it followed the coast line. We didn't mind it at all and would probably do it again.

Enjoy Hawaii and your cruise.

We did this trip on 2-17-02. The trip is 87 miles and takes about 2 hours. Patience is a virtue here, so bring a good book.

We boarded buses at the airport at 11AM. We then went to the San Diego pier where our luggage was taken off the buses and x-rayed. It was then reloaded back on the buses.

We were given a box lunch and a bottle of water for the trip, and we were off. The stop at the Mexican border was a breeze and no one from Customs/Immigration even boarded the bus.

However, there was about a 1 mile back up to get into the U.S. I wouldn't want to do the return trip.

We were taken to the Coral Hotel in Ensenada where we did our embarkation check-in and more waiting. We were finally bussed to the ship by about 2-3PM. The ship is only a 5 minute ride from the hotel.
