Right, SWA to FLL then shuttle to Miami. BTW, NOLA is the Big Easy although I have never heard it called NOLA locally. My boss certainly never calls it such and she knows her king cakes. 8) Have cruised out of the port - favorite part is when the ship transitions between salt and fresh water on the river. The buoyancy of the water differs so there is a bit of a bump.

If you're Texas resident, I do not recommend Miami. flight is too bloody expensive. I'd suggest Fort Lauderdale instead. Use Delta/SWA. Expect to pay under $200 for roundfare during off-peak. Also, check out Los Angeles port. Sometimes you can find cheap flights to LA, but ground transportation from airport to cruise port is very expensive. Try getting more people to split cab fare.
