peggy46168 - I believe there is a very nice harbor tour of Ft. Lauderdale, available thru the cruiselines. They pick you up with your baggage, take you to a tour both by bus and on a riverboat, and drop you at the airport. It is not very expensive, runs only a few hours and solves some logistics problems. Check with the tours offered by your cruiseline! It is very relaxing and fun - I have done it and had a great orientaion as to Ft.Lauderdale!
