Congrats!!!! I know the "high" of the booking process!
There are a lot of hotels near the Port of Miami - and across the street from the Holiday Inn and very close to the other hotels is the Bayside Market Place - a great place to wander through and sample some food and drinks....especially good Cuban food there.
Check out biddingfortravel.com for suggestions for Miami.
Carnival Breeze with Ray B and Aerogirl 5/4/14!
If you use Priceline, you want downtown Miami and how many stars you wish to start with...Most are fairly close to the port, but I noticed you usually need to hire a cab to get to the pier ont he morning of the cruise, very few offer free shuttles.
