For anyone who has cruised since Jan 1, 2002, does Princess still offer last day tours in Ft. Lauderdale that end up at the airport? There has been some question about this with the new baggage rules taht were implemented at the airlines on Jan, 1, 2002. WE are on Feb. 4th Sun Panama and our plane does not leave Ft. Lauderdale until 4:20. We were hoping to be able to get a ship tour. Any info would be appreciated. KG
Yes, Princess does still offer tours in Ft. Lauderdale once you disembark the ship. They offer one that ends at Ft. Lauderdale Airport and one ends at Miami Airport. They use the large air conditioned buses which was plenty of room for all of your luggage. They sort the luggage in the luggage compartment according the airline you are flying. They are very efficient...once you arrive back at the airport they have your bags on the curb in no time at all.
The tour goes to the Everglades for an airboat ride. Then they take you to an animal reserve/citrus farm. It was very interesting and sure beat sitting the the airport for hours and hours. The entire tours lasts about 3 1/2 hours. Well worth it, IMHO.
We were lucky enough to have a wonderful guide who was very, very informative. It was a real pleasure listening to him.
