We are cruising for the first time with our 11 & 15 year old boys.
We are flying in 'red-eye' from the westcoast, arriving at the Miami at 7am on Saturday.
We are sailing out of Port Everglades on Princess that afternoon. We return to Fort Lauderdale on the following Saturday, but don't fly home until Sunday at 8am. So, here's our problem...
What is the best way to get to the port from the airport that early in the morning? What should we do with our luggage? What can we do while we are waiting to get on board?
Also, any suggestions or recommendations for the post cruise accomodations? We are considering the King Tut exhibit in Fort Lauderdale. Other than that, we just want a nice, clean room with a good pool (although the beach might be nice also). We are spinning our wheels trying to decide where to stay (FLL, MIA beach or MIA airport area). Also, any suggestions on transporation from the port - to the hotel - to the airport?
We are leaving in 6 weeks, so we need to make a decision soon! We really enjoy everyone's posting on this site and appreciate any suggestions.
