If the cruise lines pull out of using US ports they will create new itineraries using ports like Cozumel and some Caribbean ports to sail from. It won’t be difficult... Crystal and Silver seas have already done this.

Yes, but a majority (or a large plurality) drive to the port.

Bureaucrats don't usually "quake" about anything.  They've got guaranteed income for life!  Regards.

MrLevin: We live 350 from Miami. We fly down to board a ship. We would be ok with flying to Atlanta and then taking a flight to a Caribbean port in order to do a Caribbean cruise or flying into a Mexican port to take a cruise. Not a big deal.
