I'm booked for the cruise and am planning to fly to Miami on Oct. 27th. Since I am taking my adult son with me and paying double for everything, I was more concerned about price when booking a room. I found a great rate ($85 including tax) at the Miami Airport Day's Inn. They also offer free shuttles from the airport and to the cruise ship. Although meeting the group beforehand at Bayside would be nice, I figure if I don't make it, I'll meet everyone soon enough.
I would like some opinions regarding Miami flight times. Would I be pushing my luck if I were to book a flight that leaves at 11:25? VTG suggested not booking anything before noon. However, I can save considerable and have less layover time if I were to book an 11:25 flight.
