Default to stay or not to stay?

i am going on carnival triumph on novermber30 and i am debating as to wether i should book a hotel for a pre cuise vacation. i am leaving miami. i left from miami last october and we were delayed in charlotte and were an hour late to miami. carnival held the ship for us and those of us on the plane i didnt know till we left the airport but we almost filled one fo their buses. should i be worrying about this or just go ahead and book the overnight stay?
any insight would be helpful

p.s.- i do book my flights through carnival.

If you can afford the time, I'd book the pre-night. Always nice to be there a day early, like you mentioned, with plane delays and weather, things that are out of your control, much more relaxing to deal with the traveling the day before.

See if yo can change your airfare first. You may not be able to if you book a restricted ticket.
