San Pedro (LA), California
It may be counterintuitive, but the longer the cruise the sadder it is to leave. For two days it has been hugs, kisses and even tears. I handed out more business cards than when I used to work for a living.
Disembarkation, normally a stressor, went as smoothly as I have ever seen. Crystal was perfect today.
It was as if we were the only passengers who just walked off our yacht with our land staff meeting us, gathering the luggage and escorting us to our limo.
All word cruisers were given free transfers on both ends. That was another nice treat.
