Sounds like you figured this one out. For info, I am an airline employee. You may (if possible) want to always consider flying to the cruise a day early. I have flown many flights over 20 years to MIA that have been delayed for weather or mechanical and "stressed" the cruise passengers (it's also a great excuse to "start the party" early). But another consideration is that for most car rental companies there is no drop off fee for rental cars. Most have an agency at each Florida port. You can always rent a car for about $50 and drop it off anywhere. Since we fly standby, we generally do that if we need to go to another airport (i.e. dock Miami, fly out of Ft. Lauderdale). Just food for thought.

Tx for the info Papa, unfortunately, we already booked our flight so I'll keep my fingers crossed that we'll get there on time. At least we don't have a layover. I will, however, keep that in mind for our next cruise.

The cheapest flight I could find gets in at 2:00 pm. Would he make it to the ship by 5:00 pm?

hello,

Consider renting a car at the Fort Lauderdale Airport and dropping it off at the Miami cruise terminal. This will take some research but it is an option worth exploring.

Hope that it all works out for you.

Fred

Thank you everyone for your advice. He was able to get a flight for pretty cheap $314 on AirTran when their price dropped, for just that day, into Miami and still get in around 10 am when we are getting in so it worked out. Thanks again all!
