post cruise day hotels????
Does anybody have any suggestions for hotels that offer day rates in Miami??? Our flight doesnt leave until later in the day and there will be 20 of us...we figure we could find a place that we can leave our luggage at go swimming or whatever we want to do...just to bide our time until we leave for the airport...thanks for all of your help!!!!!!

Hi Cruising,
Depending on exactly what time your flights are, they will offer some post-excursions once you are onboard. They really work out well, because at the end of them, you get dropped off at the airport, so once onboard, check into some of these, its a great way to spend a few hours and sure beats sitting at the airport.

Have a great cruise!

Re: post cruise day hotels????
When sailing out of Miami, I always stay the night before and usually the night of returning, at the Best Western Hotel at Bayside (address is 340 Biscayne Blvd), along the port of Miami. It's about 6 blocks from the pier (by taxi - don't try to walk!) and a very nice hotel, I believe about 10 stories. Usually, will cost around 69.00 a night plus tax, etc.

The hotel is just across the street from the Bayside Marketplace Village area. This is a wonderful indoor/outdoor shopping area, with free outdoor concerts in the evening (w/dancing area), all kinds of wonderful restaurants (Bubba Gump Shrimp, Hard Rock and many, many more).

I know if you call the 800 number and get the number to the hotel and call'll get a better price. I always ask for the "manager's special".

Hope this helps!

here is a well kept secert. many of the airports (miami) have pools and recreation rooms. after our last cruise our flight did not depart until 8:00pm but we were at the airport by 1:00. this helped pass the time. you may want to look into it.

Re: post cruise day hotels????
Coralcove is right! I can't remember which hotel, but I called the Miami airport and was told one of the onsite airport hotels (Marriott???) had a pool on either a top floor or on the roof, and there was a $10.00 fee to swim only. And, they had lockers available. I decided against it, because I didn't want to lug a wet swimsuit and "swim hair" when getting to the port to sail.
