We are loving going out of Baltimore. The 45 minute drive is wonderful. Others we meet love the fact they can drive to the port from places such as Ohio, NY, PA, etc. We have been hearing from some West coast folks that it has been cheaper even with airfare. Also am proud to hear the Maryland hotels in the area are stepping up to provide out of towners options for getting to the port and taking care of folks.
We love not having to hop on a plan or drive to FL! We can get off a ship on Sunday, unpack and be ready to go back to work on Monday.
