From what I saw in this thread, it was my understanding that the only ship remaining in Miami as of 2011 would be the Majesty of the Seas.
2007 - Majesty of the Seas (Bahamas)
2009 - Enchantment of the Seas (Western Caribbean)
2010 - Freedom of the Seas (Western Caribbean)
2013 - Golden Princess (Alaska, roundtrip from Seattle)

Bub, we were on Carnival when we had the 2 hour computer delay in Miami. It is very rarely the cruise line's delay, almost always customs, immigration or the port authorities. Not sure what your plans are, but be aware that these things do happen.

Had listed the incorrect poster.

Thanks for that link, I had not heard this. Wonder why they are doing this? We are able to drive to Tampa, although a very long drive from N.C, but have to fly to Miami. Ft. Lauderdale is not much different than Miami distance wise.

Thanks Penny,
Thinking about the Liberty in March, I know things happen and it's really not a big deal this time since we're not flying right in or out before or after the cruise.
Thanks, will be asking more questions after we book.

Sorry, Jim, but you are wrong.

The info on the RCI website is incorrect since it uses apples and oranges. It uses the max beam of the Voyager but the waterline beam of the Freedom.

The Voyager class has a waterline beam of 127 feet and a maximum width of 156 feet.

The Freedom class has a 127 ft. beam at the waterline (same as Voyager) but is 184 feet at the maximum.

Thanks Dave for the beam info..very interesting..do you think they are measuring the cantilever hot tubs on the Freedom Class. Oh well looking forward to Explorer of the Seas...I am sure it will be big enough. In regards to Miami we have sailed from the Port of Miami three times since 2009..and have never had a problem either boarding or getting off the ship. However, I really did enjoy Port Everglades and the huge terminal for Oasis last month. Actually had RCI staff on the outside near the curb asking if they could be of any assistance. Yes please!
