Super Bowl Miami 2/4/07-Air & Hotel Problems for Cruiser
I just found this info on another board and thought I'd pass it on. The Super Bowl is 2/4/07 in Miami. Those that are cruising from Miami & Ft. Laud. around this date may have problems getting air and hotels. Hope this info helps. We are re-thinking our plans.
I have the same problem. Airfare from Philly to Miami is almost $600 instead of $180-200. We decided to cruise out of San Juan instead. The airfare from Newark to San Juan is $230. Hotels in Miami and Fort Lauderdale will be sold out.
Re: Super Bowl Miami 2/4/07-Air & Hotel Problems for Cru
There are activites in town starting the weekend BEFORE the actual game.
Hotels are usually booked up anyhwere within 10 miles of the activites almost a year in advance. (the NFL reserves 3 hotels entirely, one for each team and one for NFL employees. The press winds up using a few hotels themselves.)
Of course the airlines and hotel chains all jack up the prices for the entire week.
Not to mention the logjam of people who flood a Super Bowl city for the various festivities. (75-80% of whom, won't even have a ticket for the game itself.)
A note to cruisers.....
The 2009 Super Bowl is in Tampa on Feb. 1, 2009
and the 2010 Super Bowl is back in Miami. (date TBD)
I would hate to be in a Super Bowl city for anything other than celebrating the NFL.
