I will be arriving at Miami airport at 12:30. What time can I reasonably epect to be boarding the ship (RC Majesty)? When are the rooms usually ready? How long do they serve lunch?

big question - did you take the transfer or are you taking a cab?

The Windjammer will be open for lunch until 3:30 or 4pm. Your cabin should be ready by the time you board. Assuming your flight is on time, I'd expect to be smiling for the welcome aboard photo by 2pm.

i actually disagree with dave....

i highly recommend you scrap the transfer and grab a cab. you're not too far from the port and the transfer will wait for any number of flights, delaying your arrival at the port.
the cab is probably the same amount as the transfer would cost. nothing worse than waiting an hour for other flights to arrive.
if you take a cab, you can be at the pool in
1-2 hours after arrival IMO. spend the $20 bucks or so and cab it.

What is there to disagree with? I was answering the question based on the input!

I do agree that the shuttle is not the way to go. It is always best to not show up with a mob. Actually, it is not a good idea to fly in the day the ship leaves either but it is too late for that to be changed.

Yes, I agree with both Dave and Mr Skeleton guy... we flew into Miami had five people with luggage, got a big Suburban cab and got all of us to the port for $30 with tip... much cheaper than doing the transfer thing and you don't have to wait. Unless you are solo, the cab is both faster and cheaper.

Just a note--if you have coupons for transfers and don't use them, you won't get your money back. The cab is faster though.

CF is correct. I assumed that if we talked you into trying the cab that you would call and cancel the tranfsers. If you can't get your money back doing that, then stick with the transfers and save the cab ride for another trip.
