We have been organizing cruises for 20+ years and we highly recommend booking a pre-cruise hotel for several reasons:

1.) If you try to fly in on the same day as the cruise, your flight could be delayed due to weather or mechanical reasons. Despite what you may have seen in an episode of 'I Love Lucy' you cannot be helicoptered onto the ship after it has departed. Don't miss the boat! 
2.) If your luggage is temporarily lost or delayed, flying in the day before gives the airlines time to deliver it to you before you board the ship.
3.) It gives you another full day of 'fun in the sun' lounging by the pool and meeting fellow members of our group.
4.) We'll begin to distribute our complimentary souvenir Kenda Cruise T-shirts at the hotel, so you won't have to stand in line on the ship to get it - and you'll get to board ship while wearing it!
5.) In the spirit of 'Lead by Example' Joe Kenda, Carl Marino (and their wonderful wives) as well as me and my team will all be arriving in Los Angeles at least one day prior to the cruise.

We have a limited block of hotel rooms so call us right away: 845-341-6776
