Give me a cruise over land any day of the week ... I am exhausted from planning the land portion following my upcoming cruise ... I feel like I've driven 5000 miles just in the planning. I am cruising down the coast, connecting with my son in LA and then on to Ensenada. When we return to LA, we fly to Portland Maine for a 9 day New England Fall Color extravaganza and then home to Las Vegas. Between booking fights, the rental car, 8 different motels, sights to see, etc., I am reminded why I love to just pick a cruise, go wherever it's going, and maybe pick an excursion or four.
