In planning for our cruise Sept 13-23 on Millie..I have been monitoring the airline flights each day. Just on a whim, i checked flying into miami instead of Ft Lauderdale as they are 35 kms apart. The flight to miami took off $140 off my airfare from vancouver!! I also found out that there is a shuttle service from the Miami airport to the Fort Lauderdale Airport that cost $21 per person..or up to 4 people can share a taxi for $60.
Yes i know, it is a little more time in that you have to take a 35km drive..but if it saves you a fair amount on airfare, it is something to look into!
If anyone is going to go that route..let us know, you could share our taxi if your flight is around when ours will be!
Hi, we will be on the Sept. 13, Millie cruise also. A first for us. We will be flying from Ottawa to Ft. Lauderdale, traveling the day befor, staying the night a Amerisuites who also have shuttle from the Airport and just a short distance to the pier. Really looking forward to this trip. Nice to know there will other CDN'son board.

Just thought I'd mention that I was able to book Amerisuites online at ValueTrips.com.
If you call Amerisuites they quote $119/night, booking online you can get the same at $75\night. I was hesitant about booking online but spoke to reservations at Amerisuites they assured me that ValueTrips was a reputable site and that they honored books with them.
I had thought of biddingwith Priceline.com biut wasn't confident that they would get me the hotel I wanted.
