Default Fort Lauderdale hotel info

We decided to try Priceline for hotels pre and post cruise…using Kuki’s advice. It worked for us in Vancouver earlier this month. We are sailing the Liberty in November. We tried for a 4* but could only get the Bahia Mar, 3*, no longer associated with Radisson, for $85 for our post-cruise. Anyone have experience with this hotel?

We were denied the same price for pre-cruise, probably because it is Thanksgiving weekend. Since I had to wait 72 hours to re-bid for pre-cruise, I decided to look up the hotels on their own website. WOW!! I found the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 Resort for $117 – Federal Government rate! And booked it. Now to get travel insurance and wait 185 days!!!

We just changed from the Sensation to the Liberty for thanksgiving week. So we willl be on the ship with you. We haven't sailed this class ship yet so we are really excited. We were on tne carib princess last year and loved the movie under the stars and can't wait to see it on the Liberty. We haven't started looking for our pre crise hotel yet but thought we would give priceline a couple tries then try our own hotel search. We have to have two rooms so we try to get the best price we can . Have a great cruise!!!!!! Cindy

Cindy,
I think you'll be glad you changed. We loved the Glory! We are sailing the Saturday AFTER Thanksgiving, still same time as you? Maybe you could try the Embassy Suites or Amerisuites if you need lots of room. They include breakfast and transfers. Good luck.

Thanks! I checked into it and the Amerisuites looks to be just what we are looking for.
I will probably just go ahead and book our rooms there. I am starting to get so excited and its still so far awy. We are booked on the inspiration in sept and then the liberty in nov. I really want the summer to go by quickly!!! Cindy
