Default Nothing like Being Prepared:)

I am editing this post for a correction.The Super Bowl will be held Miami on February 7, 2010 .


For all you cruisers planing to sail in February 2010..I have seen many posts for Cruisemates who have already booked the Oasis for then....mark your calendars so you will be aware that, the Super Bowl is being held in Miami.

This should make for mighty slim pickins for hotels, unless you are pro active. The NFL head quarters will be at the Yankee Trader Hotel, which will reopen as the Westin Beach Resort. Sooo, the entire A1A hotel corridor will be booked to the hilt! A word to the wise:)

Other NFL guests and the media will stay in hotels, including the St. Regis, the W and the Hilton, located along the beach between the Westin and the Broward County Convention Center, which will serve as the Super Bowl's media center.

Good info Trip. The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I have "Triumph" booked for Feb 1st. We don't need a hotel, but the traffic will probably be a treat.

With the jumbo Oasis being ported there, which means just, that many more people flying into Fll, imagine the combination of people who are going in early for the game, and to cruise. That airport will be a nightmare, as well as the traffic, on A1A...restaurants will be filled to the brim..Oh, my!....Ml.. You may want to consider changing the date of the Oasis, if indeed, that is your cruise date!!

Trip: I really have to thank you for this heads up. I changed our cruise to January 16, 2010 as soon as I read this post. I'm so happy I didn't end up in the middle of that mess! Thank you!

ML, go buy a lottery ticket, because your date was "the" date... I corrected my post because, the game is in Miami...The NFL headquarters and media, guests etc, will be staying in Fll. Both cities, and, airports will be bogged down, so I am glad you made the switch...
