Hi I'm cruising out of Ft. Lauderdale in December. Will it be swimming weather in Florida then?

Any suggestions as to what's the best way to get from Ft. Lauderdale to a hotel in Miami Beach? Per the website it says it's 20 mins. away.

I guess it depends what you consider "swimming weather". The weather in florida in december changes daily. one day it will be a nice 75-80 degrees, the next it drops down to 50-60. So i would pack a bathing suit and a sweater, just in case. The best way to get down to miami beach is to take a taxi. Its a little expensive ($50-70) plus tips. you can also consider hiring a car/shuttle at the airport. that might bring the cost down a little. you should also check to see if the hotel your staying at offers a shuttle to the airport. they may have a service or can recommend a good one. Hope that helps! Check out It has alot of good information about the things to do in Miami and ft. lauderdale before your cruise

December is iffy weather-wise. If this current hot streak continues..who knows?

Swimming in pools is a for sure. Swimming in the Atlantic? Generally, the current changes and while the air temp. might be anywhere from 60-85 degrees, the water temp will be in the mid-low 70's on the average.

As for Ft. Lauderdale to Miami Beach? I don't think it is 20 minutes on a good day.

I know some that have used shuttle between the two locations but the charge for a private car is per car, not per person. I think round trip is about $175 so if you have a group, it's reasonable. A cab would be rather expensive, especially in rush hour traffic. You might consider a rental car--even at $40 a day plus parking, it could be cheaper than a shuttle.

BTW--I am also cruising in December out of FLL.

Take care and travel safe.

The water will be alittle chilly but if you are anywhere from a northern state it wont even phase you. The weather will still be brutally hot and humid so you'll enjoy cooling off in the water! The ride could be a little longer to Miami depending on where exactly it is you are going. It generally takes about a half an hour fom the FTL Inter Airport to get to South Beach. As for transportaion, I am not sure what would be more affordable. A cab is def gonna be expensive. You might be better off renting a car from Dollar and having it for the day because a cab ride would by far exceed the price of the rental. Unless of course you have a few people you could split the fare with! There are also concierge pick up services that provide rides for a flat rate. I will try and find out some names for you. You'll have a blast. Thats where I am from!

Travel Tips for Fort Lauderdale

En todo Fort Lauderdale hay 15 museos, entre los cuales se destaca el Ah-Tha-Thi-Ki, que exhibe una colección completa de objetos pertenecientes a los indios semínolas, conocidos como los nativos americanos inconquistados.
La flora y la fauna de la Costa Dorada del Gran Fort Lauderdale impresionan por su variedad y colorido. La zona es muy visitada por los estudiantes de fósiles.

Touristy but fun Beach bar

by yooperprof about Howl at the Moon

It's touristy but fun. Howl at the Moon is located in a large entertainment complex outside the Marriott on Fort Lauderdale Beach. Its outside deck provides excellent views of the neighborhood. Reasonably priced unexceptional bar food, good tropical drinks and efficient service. At least that was my experience on a cloudy day off-season. I imagine that during peak times things can be pretty dicey here.

Los barcos que funcionan como...

by fga

Los barcos que funcionan como taxis son los vehículos más utilizados en el área. La famosa ruta acuática Intracoastal de Fort Lauderdales conduce prácticamente a todos los lugares de la región. Si el objetivo es sólo pasear, ir de compras o cenar, basta con llamar al Water Taxi (Tel: 467-6677) y apreciar el paisaje desde una de sus embarcaciones. El precio de U$S 7 la ida, U$S 12 la ida y vuelta, y U$S 15 el pase de un día.
Para quienes quieran recorrer todo el condado o hacer excursiones a otros destinos turísticos de La Florida conviene alquilar un auto.
Los taxis y limusinas se contratan en Yellow Cab (Tel: 565-5400).
Otra opción son los buses de Broward County Transit que proporcionan pases especiales de transporte ilimitado por una semana. Y para pasear se pueden tomar los pintorescos trolebuses que recorren tanto los sectores mas tradicionales como modernos de la ciudad.

Buffet Lunch

by cjg1 about Windjammer(Navigator of the Seas)

The Windjammer is the cruise ship's buffet meal station. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food here is good for breakfast or for a snack. I've never been impressed with their lunch or their dinner options and prefer the main dining room.

The Windjammer has no table service. Seat yourself and then search the buffet for some grub. They have every food item imaginable for lunch and dinner to cater to the very young to the older set. Some of the stations include:pizza, burgers, sandwiches, hot dgs, asian items, pasta, chicken, turkey, hot side dishes, cold salads, fruit, desserts, bread and cheeses.
Breakfast items include: hot and cold cereals, oatmeal, yourt, bagels, toast, muffins, pastry, pancakes, waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, cheese and even dessert.

The Windjammer is open from 6am-9pm and has some beautiful views from its windows. We normaly come here for breakfast or a snack but on boarding day there is no other luch option but the WIndjammer. We weren't particularly hungry so we had some pizza and side dishes which was enough to satisfy our hunger until dinner.

The Riverfront area is adjacent to downtown Fort Lauderdale. It is a popular collection of restaurants, bars and shops, some of which are located across the river and connected by a water taxi that also links the Riverfront with nearby hotels and restaurants . In my opinion, Riverfront has more of an active nightlife scene than Las Olas, which is more high end stores and restaurants.

As far as restaurants go, there is a Dan Marino's Town Tavern, which serves more casual food and is a popular place for watching sports on television, the Ugly Tuna Saloon, an outdoor bar and grill, Max's Grill, which is a tad more upscale and Mezzanotte, a decent Italian restaurant which is probably the most upscale place you'll find on the Riverfront (see Coconut Grove restaurant tips.). The Martini Bar is popular in the evenings, for its great drinks and live music. Baja's Beach Club has more of a younger crowd, with cheap drinks and loud music.

Another popular activity at the Riverfront is the boat excursions which tour the New River. These short cruises take you past homes located on the waterfront. Riverfront also hosts numerous events, including fireworks on Fourth of July and New Years Eve. The are several large parking garages in the area, so finding a spot is relatively easy if you arrive early.

Most Riverfront places close early, but the Martini Bar and Baja's stay open until about 3 a.m. on the weekends.
