I believe the Comfort Inn is the one on the Corner of US1 and 17th Street Causeway. Not sure where the Sheraton would be. Do you have an address? There is a water taxi that picks up at the Pier 66 and the Grand Floridian on the intracoastal and 17th street causeway. They charge $10/pp for all day, you can ride it as many times as you like. I'd take that all the way to the end, there's a great restaurant/bar on the intracoastal called Charlie's Crab, and also another one called Shooters. Along the way, you get a nice tour of Ft. Lauderdale. They have stops you can get to the beach. Stops for shopping at Las Olas boulevard. There's a stop for Birch State Park. There's also a great tour on the Jungle Queen. It takes you to an Indian village and a bar-b-que lunch/dinner. If you like fishing you could go on a drift fishing boat or charter a boat for deep sea fishing. There's also tours to the Everglades. Your hotels or even the cruise line can arrange some tours for you. Hope this helps a little.
