We will be arriving from DC to Ft. Lauderdale the first week in April 2002 to depart on Monarch of the Seas 4 night cruise...our first ever. Does anyone know how far the AMTRAK station is from the port. Also any suggestions as to hotels for the night prior to departure....hopefully one that will provide transportation to the port. Thanks in advance for ANY help or advice since we are truly new at all of this!
The Amtrak station is at Broward Boulevard, just off I-95. That's about 15 minutes from the Port by taxi, many of which meet the trains. Good hotel choice is Amerisuites, close to the Port entrance, restaurants, etc., about the same distance from the station.
