Default what to do with luggage post cruise before flight back home

Anybody have any thoughts on what to o with luggage post cruise if your flight doesn't leave until late in Miami? We were due to arrive back in Port of Miami at 7:00 a.m., my flight home doesn't leave until 5:00 P.M. wondering if there was anything to do with my luggage instead of lugging it around with me for hours. Thoughts appreciated!

Many folks book a post cruise port excursion where the ship tour will take your luggage along with the group on a local excursion and then drop you off at the airport after.

I agree with Phil & Liz, this is the easiest way to get to see the great city of Miami, and have a hassle free last day..See what wonderful options the ship offers for late flight cruisers.

I had a 5:25 flight out of Miami in January and I decided to do a tour. I opted for the Everglades tour and was it ever fun!!!! We did see a fair number of gators in the water and the park itself is a good size. We were back at the airport for around 1pm, so I had a bit of a wait. The Everglades tour was one of the longer ones, so expect to be back at the airport between 1-1:30 if you do a tour..

I encourage it, it is well worth it....The one thing I didn't like was they had us up and ready to debark at 7:30am!!! We got off right after the VIP's!

Default caution with post cruise excursion

I booked a post cruise excursion so that i would not have to lug my luggage around all day, but the cruise ship couldn't get my luggage to the tour bus before we left, and they are still supposedly looking for it. my advice is to bring the luggage down to the bus yourself if you are booking a post cruise excursion.
live. laugh. love. cruise.
