I am going on the Eastern Caribbean Cruise January 25 - Feb. 1, 2004 sponsored by Atlantis. The cruise leaves from Ft. Lauderdale. I am planning on flying to Ft. Lauderdale on January 21st from Los Angeles. Does anyone have a good recommendation as to hotel accommodations in Ft. Lauderdale - preferrably a gay resort?
Hi, Ron. Not sure if you already have some places in mind and are familiar with Lauderdale or not. I lived there a few years back so I never stayed at the hotels but have heard the Royal Palms Resort is pretty good. You can check them out at royalpalms.com. Apparently one of the best rated gay resorts in the area and right on Ft. Lauderdale Beach just a few miles from the terminal. Also, Embassy Suites on 17th Street Causeway would be a good location - right next to the pier and centrally located between the airport and the beaches.
Good luck with your search.

How about staying in South Beach Miami? It is not that far to the port that you couldn't afford a taxi drive. Since you are going 4 days early I would go for a Miami stay over Ft Laud anytime. Happy sailing!
