dock workers

I've always been torn about tipping the dock workers. They all belong to the longshoreman union and factoring in weekend pay, they pull down close to 100K a year. Plus I"m sure they declare all that...

We had a minisuite and the table on the balcony was about 30" across. Bigger than we have had before. It allowed my wife and I to enjoy meals on the balcony, so I woundn't call it small.

Ft Lauderdale hotel

I need some suggestions on a good, not too expensive hotel with airport pickup and shuttle to the ship the next day. Don't need anything fancy or over the top, and it will only be for 1 night.
