As of right now,we are in Amerisuites on 17St, in Fll...I am also considering Lauderdale by the Sea, this area has a very nice neighborhood feeling. We have stayed there many times and love that atmosphere.
As time goes by, I am going to check Priceline/Hotwire to see what's what as well...With this being holiday time, everything is pricey as you would expect, & we got a good rate, way back when, considering.
See ya soon gang!
Trip, with her book & tea!

It's been finalized, we are arriving on the 29th and staying at the Holiday Inn Port of Miami. We'll be the 3 very pale white people out by the pool, no matter how cool it may be in Florida, in Dec. it's got to be better than Montreal!
Location: Wisconsin....about 100 miles south of the Frozen Tundra and 70 miles east of Camp Randall
I'm with Donna and her gang at the Holiday Inn Bayside - Port of Miami. I'll be the other totally ghostly white person there (well, maybe I will have the last vestiges of the tan from my November cruise, but......)
I think a pre-CM party drink at the Latin American Cafe just might be in order! Mojitos anyone?
Carnival Breeze with Ray Band Aerogirl 5/4/14!
We're at the same hotel as Tweets, the Miami Marriott. We arrive in Mia on the 29th at 4:30 pm so I'm hoping we will be able to make dinner! Don't go to Lombardi's too early please. We're dying to see all of ya and are very excited about going on this cruise. Been a few years since we've done a cruise over New Years. My brother, SIL and niece are joining us on this one too so that makes it nice.
Cheers with a mojito in hand---lol for the Latin American Cafe
Susie and I are also staying at the Holiday Inn Bayside-- Port of Miami
Jane its not a Holiday Inn Express------ ????? lol unless they changed it ----I hope were staying at the same place-----
I'm arriving on the 29th around 5:00 --- just wish it was sooner but coming from CA and the time difference -- its the best I could do----
Thanks April ... guess I got it confused with my stay last April at the HI Express in FLL. Definitely will be staying at the same place with you and Susie ... my plane gets in at 2:25 so guess I'll be over there sometime after 3 PM which I believe is checkin time.
I cruise the Emerald Princess, Eastern Caribbean on April 16, 2012
We are flying in Friday night. I'm not sure if we wil make it to the pre-cruise bash or not. And believe it or not, I've not done anything about a hotel yet......I better get moving on that!

We are getting in on the 29th and staying at the Courtyard Marriot. Hopefully, it is not too far from anything. In any event we are flying into Ft. Lauderdale so are renting a car. We are looking forward to this cruise and meeting all the Cruisemates!
