They'd better be careful what they wish for. If the new rule that's propose by Homeland security goes into effect they'll be wishing for some of that business back again.
So it is the proposed rule change as Rich alluded to. Funny how many of us have already forgotten about that or only were thinking of the west coast and Ensenada.
It is a profoundly stupid rule change. The one guy quoted in the news article got it right...they are using a shotgun approach for something that is at most a small issue. And as for NCL and their original whining, all I can say is that come this May we can say "and then there was one" for their ships in Hawaii.
Well key west was one of my favorite ports. If they eliminate it They will truely be doing a disservice to a great city. I was planning on doing a cruise that stopped in key west. Dont see myself driving there so a cruise ship is the way to go. Not a good idea in my view.
