we have a cruise booked out of Miami on the Valor for Sept. We are flying into Fort Lauderdale. Does anyone know what is the earliest we could make Air line reservation for our return home?
I know the Cruise people say 12 but there is a 10 oclock flight if we could make it. or is that just pushing it too much.
When we cruised in February, we also cruised out of Miami but flew in to Ft. Lauderdale. It is a good 40 minute drive; however, in our case, there was an accident on the highway and it took over an hour. I wouldn't cut your times too close!
We are flying into Fort Lauderdale and I am looking for a hotel to stay in the night before we board our ship. Do any of you have any suggestions on a nice clean hotel that provides shuttle service from the airport to the hotel and also to the port? We would like something with a restaurant or close to restaurants. Thanks.
Are you cruising out of Lauderdale or Miami? If you are out of Lauderdale, there is a Hampton Inn on Stirling Road that use to have free shuttle service to the port. There is also a Comfort Inn next door that had a shuttle. Both have restaurants near them. I would double check if they still offer the shuttle before booking.
I am planning our cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. We will be flying in and out of Fort Lauderdale - if we book a flight to leave at 10:15 a.m. the day we return to port - is that too early for us? I was thinking the last time we did self embarkation we were off the ship by 8:30 but I heard them announce that if you have an early flight you can request to get off the ship early? Any advice welcome.
