Cruises/Boating Tips (10)

take a cruise...

Miami is also known as the "Cruise Capital of the World" and has a massive port to support this growing industry. As far as I know, about 4 million people sail off from the Port of Miami, generally heading to the Caribbean.

I am ambivalent about cruises: you get to visit many places in a very short time - but you are given very little time at ports of call. After having taken my first cruise my impression is that it's OK to do one, provided you choose wisely: one day in some places (for example small undeveloped private Bahamas islands, or tiny inhabited islands like Grand Turk) can be sufficient, while setting on foot in Mexico or Jamaica for only a few hours, it seems very much unnatural to me, and a waste of time and money.

Also - cruises tend to be a bit on the boring side... entertainment is really "popular", with hairy-chest or spelling contests. And trust me: on my cruise people were asked to spell "post" and "stop".

Airport to Port

The cheapest way to get from the airport to the port is to come in a day in advance and rent a car from Dollar. They have a free shuttle to the rental place which is not on the airport property. Then the next day, turn the car in, and they have a free shuttle to the port.

Of course you would have to pay for the hotel and car and meals, but the getting to the port is free.

Otherwise, I'm afraid it is a taxi or a transfer arranged by the cruise ship.

Carnival Spirit 8 Day Western Caribbean Cruise

Embarkation: Lines were long but moved swiftly. When we mentioned that our luggage had been lost by our airline, our processor asked for the lost baggage claim, copied it and said Carnival would take over expediting getting our lost luggage to our first port. He said they would work with the airline for us. From that time on the purser's office handled it. They could not have treated us better. When we told them the next day that our suits/dresses were in the missing luggage, they gave us vouchers to rent tuxes (yes, they had a woman's tux) for free. They called our cabin to report progress (or lack of it) by the airline in finding our luggage. They sent letters from the purser explaining the luggage had not been found and how much they regretted it. We felt Carnival did a 1st class job & went out of their way to ensure we had a great vacation Keep in mind that Carnival had nothing to do with the airline booking/lost bags. I booked the air separately from the cruise.

Cabin: We had booked a guaranteed cabin w/balconey and obstructed view but were most pleased to be upgraded to a non-obstructed view cabin on the same deck Our cabin was slightly larger than anticipated. It was clean and well kept during our entire cruise. The bath was larger than anticipated. The balconey was quite small but very nice

Dining: Our table in the Empire Dining room was at the very back of the ship against a large porthole window. The food was very good to excellent. The service was excellent and our waiters were most entertaining at times. The buffet style food on the Lido deck was...buffet style. While some of it was very tasteful, everything was just mildly warm.

Entertainment: Most all of the evening shows were very good to excellent. The exception was the comedy routines. They were fair to not so fair.

Spa/Gym: The gym was most impressive. We used the steam rooms and both enjoyed them.

Ports: Please see our sections on Panama, Belize and Cozumel

We highly recommend Carnival.

We visited Labadee, Haiti, Ocho Rios, Jamaica, George Town, Grand Caymen and Cozumel, Mexico.
We had a spectacular time and got engaged on 12/27!

By air or - if already in the States - by car. Original is by boat, though Fort Lauderdale is more often the startingplace of large cruiseships that sail the Caribic.
Car is the best way to get around in Miami, though taxis are also able to bring you to all locations you wish for. (Photo: parking like this is only allowed by police-officers).

If you're travelling from...

If you're travelling from somewhere within a few hours' flight, and at the last minute, DEFINITELY opt for flying to Fort Lauderdale instead of Miami International Airport. I couldn't get a flight to MIA anywhere near my departure date or price range, but through Fort Lauderdale, it was easier & cheaper.
F.L. is north of Miami, by about a half-hour drive, so to big-city dwellers, it's just like travelling across town... there ARE good shuttle-taxis available, where a group of up to about 6 people can share a cab (usually a van) - it cost me only $15, instead of a likely $50 taxi ride direct. Of course, the driver got himself lost (not just once, but 4 times! Thankfully, a couple of the passengers were native Miamians and directed him street-by-street - but I'm sure this was an isolated incident).
If you arrive during the day, it's not a big deal to get a local train down to the Miami MetroRail (the city's above-ground subway-type transit system - since the land is quite flat & swampy, there's no way to build an underground system), and then take it into the city, then transferring to whatever bus you need. If you have a little patience, it's a much better deal at @$5-10, but not if you're dragging a months' worth of suitcases with you.
The bus & MetroRail system is quite efficient, there are adequate maps & information around, and (since Sept. 11), enough security to ask for directions.

In Miami Beach, there's also The Wave, a small shuttle bus which costs 25 cents, & drives in circles around the main area of Miami Beach - if you're going within its limits, it's a steal of a deal!

Walking is good - there's usually something to see on the way to wherever you're going - and because Miami is 'flat-as-a-pancake', geographically, it's easy on the legs. The only ups-&-downs are when crossing bridges over the Miami river inlet.

Rollerblading - I took my own, since I'd used them only about 2 hours over 5 years... and spent a whole day on them, easily... again, flat land (& usually good pavement) makes a good exercise.

Bicycling - same as above - easy on the legs, & presumably plenty of rental places.

Cruise ship - the Miami Port is one of the busiest around, and is entirely on a separate island from the mainland. A huge bridge (a 'short' 15-minute walk across!) is the only link, but there's lots of traffic & few pedestrians.

Ir en taxi desde el aeropuerto...

Ir en taxi desde el aeropuerto hasta Ocean Drive ronda los U$S 25; los servicios de shuttle son muy convenientes, cuestan U$S 11 por pasajero y hacen escala en varios de los principales hoteles de South Beach y de Miami Beach.
Si la idea es recorrer los alrededores, conviene alquilar un auto, ya que los taxis son caros, y los buses circulan en horarios bastante espaciados. Para poder alquilar un auto hay que contar con un permiso para conducir, tarjeta de crédito y ser mayor de 25 años.

Cruise Port/Terminals

Our cruise left from the Port of Miami. Since we live in the FL Keys, it was very easy to get to. There are signs telling you where to go; you'll be okay just following the signs.
