Im driving there and I dont want to cut it short so Im planning to arrive the day before we sail
and info would be gratly aprreciated
You can try the Ramada Inn Cruiseport which is near the port and has a free shuttle. Don't expect too much in the way of hotel amenities though. make sure it is not the Ramada Plaza in Fort Lauderdale. That one is a great hotel for the price but is a $50 cab ride from the airport and cost $30 by bus to the port.

Driving in the day before you sail is a wonderful idea! I have two suggestions for hotels that have free parking:
Hampton Inn, Plantation, and LaQuinta Inn, Hollywood. Both have a shuttle from the airport to the hotel (I know you don't need this) and from the hotel to the port. You'll have to take a taxi back to the hotel after the cruise.
I'm not familiar with other hotels, but "they" say that anything on 17th street is good . Stay away from anything on Stirling Road (rooms by the hour ).
