Ok thought I'd raise a new topic for Miami airport. I did find one topis starter but it was from a few years ago. Looking for information on Miami Airport to the dock. What do you think its the best way to go? Shuttle, taxi, etc. Anyone going on the Western Caribbean cruise leaving out of Miami on the Victory? October 21, 2006. God you all must be sick of me asking! hehehehe
Thanks for the tips, I'm not sure "Fast" is anything I worry to much about in this case. My airplane gets to Miami at 10:50am and the ship leaves at 7pm which I BELIEVE means that we cannot even start boarding until 4:30pm in the afternoon. Maybe Dale and I should think about taking a little tour around Miami. Though knowing me, I'd find some sort of music going on and miss the ship!!
So looking forward to this trip away with Hubby! For a young couple os 37 yes (Me) and 34 years old (Husband) we've been to the Caribbean many times, he has never been cruising though I have, and we have NEVEr been to United States! Strange isn't it! Folks, I tell ya, the reason is we are so busy that when we do get away for a week to the Caribbean, we hit the all inclusives, and relax. Maybe we can take a look around Miami when there though. In Canada, we go through U'S Customs before heading out of the country.
Have a great night! I look forward to checking this site! Great information for all us New Carnival people! I just can't wait to give a review on everything when I get home!
The cruise you are going on is a special one time eight night cruise. The departure time is different than the normal 7night cruise. So the boarding time may be different, but I think you probably will still be able to get on earlier than the 4:30pm. To kill some time in Miami, you might want to check out BaySide Market or the Aquarium.
Somewhere that I read and I can't find it now, (May have been on the Carnival site for my cruise) I'm positive I read embarkation was from 4:30pm until 6:30pm. I really should check it out and find the page just to make sure. I was talking to the Mother in Law and Father in law today and they said Miama is WAY too dangerous for us to cab around!! 1heheheheheh Ok just we are canadian, and they are super Valley people! heheeh I on the other hand travel all over canada, Caribbean etc! Nothing really scares me. I don't travel down a dark alley in New York City at 4am. Play it smart I say! My in Laws worry too much! Sweet people though but they've never been out of Ontario or really out of the Valley where we live! Thanks for the tips on what We can do while in Miami! We really want to grab a cab and tour around a little!
I know your documents say boarding is at a specific time. In most cases they always start earlier. When cruises are scheduled to depart at 4:00pm the paper work usually says boarding starts at 1:00pm. I have been onboard as early as 11:30-12:00noon. Be sure you fill out your pre-registration online at www.carnival.com under Funpass.
Yes my In Laws are alright with us going yet they just don't travel like hubby and I. We live in a small town. Thats great to know about boarding early! I did find where I was thinking I saw 4:30pm and it was on our boarding pass. 4:30pm until 6:30pm. Well I guess we can try getting there early. I'd love also to see a bit of Miami!
