We are sailing out of Miami on Liberty Feb 14th and have yet to book air travel. Traveling on Saturdays is expensive (leaving from Boston). We found some great $99 fares but they are a few days before and a few after. Question is can a hotel room be found in Miami area that would be cheaper than paying the heavier airfare closer to the cruise date? Six of us traveling with good flexibility...
We like the thought of getting down a day early to fend off any weather issues up here but we have been going around and around about the hotel thing. Any suggestions?
Take the few extra days before and after. We did a few before, rented a car, drove down to Key West. Even though KW was our first stop.
We stayed in FLL ad the Red Roof Inn. Rented a car from the airport FLL upon arrival and returned it to the downtown location (Hertz). They have a free shuttle and take you to the port which is just a few minutes drive.
We then rented another car since we had a late flight so Hertz came and picked us up again and we returned the car back to FLL airport.
Very NICE inexpensive prices and we had major upgrades from what we booked for. We did sign up for the Hertz #1 club for even cheaper rates. I have never had a such a quick and fast car rental process until then.
