Does anyone know if there are stores within walking distance of Pier 66 in Ft. Lauderdale where I can purchase liquor, soda, and snacks? Leaving on Millie on Apr 15th and getting into Ft. Lauderdale on Apr13th. Any help would be appreciated.
If you are staying overnight before you cruise, there are several stores on or off 17th Street; Publix & Winn Dixie Supermarkets and Eckerd Drug which all carry soda, wine, liquor, etc. Recommend taking a taxi back at least with your purchases. Eckerd's is right across from Embassy Suites, near Amerisuites and 2 blocks from the Marriott.
Hi CRUISEBILL ... just curious... I am Millie 4/15. Did you get the Hyatt Pier 66 thru Celebrity or did you book your pre cruise hotel on your own? I booked thru Celebrity and am at the Airport Sheraton. Pier Sixty Six sounds like a better location to me.
Tim, I booked Pier 66 on my own. We always do our own air and hotel. My TA is very good and we booked the air and hotel for this trip almost a year ago. Since we go done two days in advance of the sailing, we have found that this is the best way to do it, in terms of price and scheduling.
See you on board, infact we are having a get together on Monday at 2:00PM at the bar behind the Oceans Cafe on the stern of the ship, hope to see you there!!!
