Carole,
Thanks for the info,,,
Didn't know Miami had the Ducks also,,,saw them in D.C. looks like lots of fun. They also have boat tours of the rich & famous homes you can pick up at Bayside,,,we did one a few year back,,,at night. Was great.

Also might look into a tour of Vizcaya,,,it's the former home of James Deering. www.Vizcayamuseum.com We also did this so I can recommend it as well.

44 days and counting,,,Woo Woo !!!

I'd love to have a few extra day in Miami before the cruise but I was really pushing just getting the time off---- but I do plan on booking the Parrot Jugle thing as a post shore excurion after the Centurys 2 day sailing--- its kind of nice to do something and then end up back at the airport--- hopefully by then it wont be too crazy -- ?? or maybe I can get bumped again and get another airfare voucher to use for a future cruise
Cheers and thanks for sharing this info---
April

Thanks for the suggestions Seatrekker!
Does anyone know if the tours of the homes of the rich and famous include the home of Barry Gibb? Or any other way I might catch a glimpse of my "heartthrob"? I would give anything just to meet the man!
