Can't comment on that particular location as I have not stayed there. My advice from experience is to stay together as a group and watch your belongings carefully. Check your cruise departure time and contact your line - typically, early boarding is about noon. Please take the time before the drive to do a final check for all your gear and documents. Be sure to keep all your cruise documents, passports, travelers checks in hand *with copies in your luggage*.

Is that an okay area to spend one night? The Hertz people will shuttle us to the pier Monday morning. How early can we get to the pier? We're so anxious I think we want to be the first in line!
