CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF THE MIAMI PORT TERMINAL WELL ORGANIZED? FIRST TIME LEAVING FROM THIS PORT AND NEED TO KNOW IF WE SHOULD ARRIVE JUST A LITTLE EARLY. VOS DEPARTS AT 5PM, AND LOOKING TO GET TO THE TERMINAL
We left from Miami last year and had no problem.Are you arriving the day of the cruise?
When you disembark the ship it is like and airport to recover your bags,they come out on a belt and you dont have to hunt for them.
I thought the Royal Caribbean terminal in Miami was very organized. Just make sure to have all your docs ready and everything filled out, in fact if you have it filled out on-line, it will make boarding quicker and less hassle. Usually anytime after noon you can start boarding, have a great time.
We have only taken two cruises but both were from Miami. Your taxi will drop you wherever you are going. They know where the ships are. Have your docs. filled out online, passports or birth. certs ready and picture id. Tip the porters at the terminal $ 1 per bag, go into your terminal and get into line. We have always arrived about 10:30 and have boarded by 11-12 oclock. Go to the windjammer cafe for buffet and by the time you finish you probably will be able to drop your cary -on bags in the room. Have a grreat time. We will be there in April.
We just returned from our first cruise, Majesty of the Seas, from Miami. It's as the other posters say - well organized. We arrived early and were glad of it. Departure is not quite as well organized. At least, we could not find signs that explained the options for travel to the airport - many buses to the airport and no organized taxi line. We learned that the taxi rates to the airports are fixed, and if there are a number of you, it may be cheaper and more comfortable to take a cab. Also, there is an officer of some type who wrangles the cabs - but again, some kind of bedlam reigns.
