Sailing on Coral on 4/11/04 to Panama Canal. Staying at the Doubletree the night before. Just found a great airfare arriving late Friday night. Have all day Saturday in Ft Lauderdale and then sail on Sunday. I want to know if there is enough to do in Ft Lauderdale to justify staying additional night on Friday night, so I can get the cheaper air or just arrive on the same flight on Saturday evening, have dinner and get on the ship the next morning.
Hello Chacoms, I am also on the 4/11/.04 Coral sailing. My mom and I are flying into FT Lauderdale on Fri the 9th, we are planning to be at the beach on th 10th. Please respond on the "other message board" if you would like to attend our party. Look under roll calls Princess 4/11/04.
I live in ft lauderdale.
There;s plenty to do in the beach area for several days.
If you're staying at the doubletree on 17th St you're a short taxi away from the action
If you're at the Doubletree on the ocean, you're right there.
PS - My husband and I were on the Grand Princess in 2001 - fabulous ship.
If you love to shop, make time for the Sawgrass Mall. It's an outlet mall. The actual inside of the mall is one mile walking distance. Even knowing which stores are worth the time, it still takes me at least 6 hours to shop it. (I live across the state in Fort Myers). I think it may be the largest outlet mall in the United States (please don't yell at me if I am wrong!!!)
Look it up online for a list of shops. It's worth the time!!!!
We never take ship transfers from FLL to Port Everglades. It is a 7 minute taxi ride point to point and costs about $10.00. The taxi drivers make this trip hundreds of times every day. It is a breeze. Step out the airport door and get in a cab. They will drop you right at port side. Sme thing in reverse too. Enjoy!
