Thanks Dave for the beam info..very interesting..do you think they are measuring the cantilever hot tubs on the Freedom Class. Oh well looking forward to Explorer of the Seas...I am sure it will be big enough. In regards to Miami we have sailed from the Port of Miami three times since 2009..and have never had a problem either boarding or getting off the ship. However, I really did enjoy Port Everglades and the huge terminal for Oasis last month. Actually had RCI staff on the outside near the curb asking if they could be of any assistance. Yes please!
