Need Advice about FMIL situation

Trust me, I do know what you are going through. My dad, who I am not very close with, stormed out of my college graduation party because he was angry that my stepfather was acting as "dad," even though he had been for 15 years. For my wedding, I decided not to even invite my dad because I did not want to deal with the mess....and then be trapped in a foreign country for days when drama breaks out. No thank you.
I know this isn't an option for you, but I think it would be best to get ahold of the situation before you see it again. I would hope your FMIL would be a big enough person to put her personal issues aside for her children. I would even say that last sentence. Let her know how selfish she would be.

I was going to say also, I know Ann had a great experience with the WC for Las Celatas. If you felt comfortable talking to them, maybe they would have suggestions for how to deal with transportation.
Worst case scenario--- Stick a sign on the boat to greet them that says "Keep to your own corners. I have a secret agent on this boat who will throw one of you overboard if you come within 10 feet of each other!"

I just hope that she isn't stupid when she is drunk. She might be ok while not drunk (hope, pray, cross fingers) but when she is I don't know what to expect.

IDEA, give everyone dramamine but have them give her a sugar pill. She'll hopefully fall ill and that guarantees at least 40 minutes of her not being able to start shit!!!
Seriously, I also say bring the one you favor over early with you guys, telling the other one that you can't risk ruining the harmony of the boat ride. Or you can make up an excuse as to why you need her on the boat, or why you need the other one there early - like maybe to help with hair/makeup/last minute sewing in case something rips? lol

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
