Riders can pick up tickets on board, online, or at several area hotels. In addition to the regular schedule, captains guide Water Taxi's vessels for private chartered voyages, such as moonlight cruises and scavenger hunts.

Sopranos Dueling Piano Bar
During the boisterous shows at Sopranos Dueling Piano bar, pianists take the stage and play popular tunes as audience members clap, dance, and sing along. Meanwhile, bartenders dole out 24 varieties of beer and an array of colorful cocktails—including the frozen margarita lauded by reporters from South Florida Sun-Sentinel for providing "the perfect amount of pucker." Servers bustle about the tabletops in the dimly lit space, balancing trays of wings, burgers, and coconut shrimp with sweet-chili dipping sauce

I think we stayed here may years ago, not the Hyatt then, I'm sure. But just curious, does it still have the revolving bar/restaurant? I loved that place!

Yes, that is the one! I had a room facing the port and we watched the ships sail in, with a glorious sunrise as a backdrop. Love the location....there is, Harbor Shoppes close by, for dining,and Publix, for last minute must haves.

I enjoyed the Rennaissance as well,and the Bahia Mar, also close by.
