  1. I have used Shoreexcursioneer several times and sometimes there is a costco promo code to save 10%. It is hit or miss. however I booked directly through Little French Key as the price is the same. But if you have a promo code go for it. They are reputable.
  2. We did Daniel Johnson's Monkey and Sloth place a few years ago and it poured all day. They were in covered cages and the area outside the cages had some cover so it was all fine. A little soggy but they didn't cancel anything. Maybe the same at Bodden's but the set up might be different.
  3. Glad to hear the massages are good. I was a little reluctant but the price seemed very good. Looking forward to it now. Thanks
  4. Go State - and we will keep her in good care for you, we will be getting off Breakaway on 4/21 Have fun
  5. The Cuban restaurant we had dinner was Casa Juan. there is a Cantina Fresh Mexican Grill and Anacapri Italian in the same strip mall as the Burlington and Publix. If you google maps the hotels on the blue lagoon strip and zoom out, the strip mall is on NW 7th and NW 57th Ave called Airpark Plaza. That will give you also a good idea on the walk. There looks like some other restaurants in there like a Subway and Starbucks, etc. Good luck
  6. It is about 1/2 mile or 10 minute walk as you have to walk back to the main road around the lagoon, but it's a leisurely walk with sidewalks and crosswalk when you get to the main street. There is even a Burlington in the strip mall we stopped and people were buying last minute flip flops and shorts, etc. if you forget anything. We decided to stay there again in April as the rate was really cheap also. And they have a shuttle from the airport.
  7. I thought the same thing when they said MSU, but I think they are talking Missouri and Not Michigan State... but hey Go Green Go White, Champs!
  8. We stayed at the Homewood Suites Blue Lagoon which is across a lagoon from Hampton Inn last week. It was cheaper for us than Hampton. Nice hotel, big breakfast and little kitchen if you need it. We walked over to the Cuban restaurant in the strip mall by the Publix. It was awesome. There is an Italian and Mexican place there also and a Publix and liquor store. Nice walk and felt safe. Uber to the port the next day was $15.
  9. This was true at FLL last week. We were early for our flight like everyone else in both Miami and FLL ships having to get off and wait at airport. We could not check our bags with a delta and they would call what flights could get in line of or baggage drop. It was chaos. But I guess this prevented the seats at the gate being filled up. Getting to airport early was not necessary.
  10. We we did this last week and probably had same driver. $35 plus tip for 2 and 3 suitcases. Has to put one in front seat but he was fine. Nice guy. A little hard to find them in taxi line but a phone call to flag them down is all it takes. Easy
  11. We took the Tri Rail last week from FLL to MIA airport stop. We lucked out as walked outside airport and only waited few minutes for bus to station. Then arrived and next train was 5 minutes. Bought tickets for 3.75 each. The luggage was a little pain. There was no rack space left on the car we got on so we just stood by it. Ride was smooth and fast. Then took hotel shuttle from MIA to hotel. It was easy. We uber back from POM to FLL on departure day and it was $37 plus tip. Guy was nice so it was $47. A lot easier but tri Rail was good. We had the time and it was easy
  12. Looking for same as I did a search on this and we are trying on Friday. Someone posted something on here. I looked at maps and found some info online. It looks like there is a shuttle at the FLL airport to the Train station. We are then going to get off at MIA airport stop as our hotel has a shuttle from there. We have plenty of time day before so are trying it out. I will post on this thread when we get back and let you know.
  13. The bummer when you upgrade is you only get the inside cabin offers.
  14. Same here. Upgrading when booking from a land based "free" inside cabin is really high. I have a bid out for April and was even surprised to get an upgrade email to try. Good luck
  15. Great review, following along. Grand Rapids Michigan here! we are 30 days out on same itinerary. I hear you on flight costs. We are driving to Detroit also and to Fort Lauderdale. Can't wait to see more. Go Green, Go White
