Does anyone know any info on the terminals Carnival uses in Miami. If anyone has an info on this ship or has been on in I would love your input. Thank You! Ben
Ben, When I sail out of Maimi I stay in Ft Lauderdale. The hotel rates and the airfare were much better when I was doing it. There are still shuttles to the Maimi Cruise Port and back again or you can do taxies. Either way we found it less expensive overall. We stayed in a Comfort Inn and I can't remember exactly where but it was very good. It was next to a Hampton inn. We also were in a Roadway which was bad and a friend was in the Best Western which we also do not reccomend.
We have not sailed out of Maimi in several years but I remember the Port being well organized. It may even have a Port Cam if you search for the port site itself.
