Had a condo in Ft. Lauderdale 2 years ago. Not familiar with current hotels. I would suggest that you get a AAA tour book if you can, and get a hotel/motel on the airport side, as that's where the cruise ship port is. I can see why some people might have a problem with transportation, due to the fact of so many yachts and sailboats having the drawbridges to open. Some open at a certain time, others open on demand. There can be huge backups at some points, and shuttles as well as cabs try to take different routes to avoid this, as do the natives. Granted, you won't be seeing the magnificent beach, but have to figure what you're priority is. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]
