    Does it have a beach?

  1. I would park off site. Ask on the NFL board to see how strict they are on scheduled arrival times.
  2. If you got all of that for only $50 it must have been several years ago.
  3. Store your bags at the Luggage Lounge in South Beach, then you are free to explore. Or check www.resortpass.com for resorts and large hotels offering day passes to their pool, spa and beach facilities.
  4. As the CAPT said, no reservations possible or required.
  5. Live and learn! Have a great cruise!😎
  6. As noted aborve, parking at POM is expensive but is covered, convenient and secure. Parking anywhere else in Miami will likely not be covered, will be much less convenient and for sure will be less secure. It's your car - do you feel lucky?

    In the restaurant area. Might be a small fee?
  8. Good to know. That makes the SAS fare $65 (5 x $13=$65)+tip compared to about $70+ for UberXL.
  9. I would also price out flights into. Orlando (MCO) or even Tampa. About a 3.5+ hour drive from Orlando to POM, closer to 5 hours from TPA.
  10. Be sure to let us know if you find one -- most of the reports from off site parking in Miami are dismal. Parking at POM costs $22/day, but is covered, convenient and secure.
  11. To be clear, the MIA Embassy Suites is not in the Blue Lagoon neighborhood - it is actually somewhat isolated from any nearby shopping/dining options, but if you have a car that should not be an issue.
  12. A mini-van taxi should accommodate 4 passengers plus bags, even if someone in your group packs like my wife. Ask the hotel front desk to call the cab for you - they know who is reliable. Fare from hotels near FLL airport to PE should be about $15+ on the meter for the cab - so maybe $5-6 each including the tip!
  13. Most of the hotels offering cruise parking will be out near the MIA airport - Hampton Inn & Homewood Suites in the Blue Lagoon area are often suggested, as is the MIA Embassy Suites. A budget option near MIA is the La Quinta East. None of these includes a ride from the port back to your car so plan on about $20+ for an Uber/Lyft after the cruise. If you find a good deal on a hotel in Fort Lauderdale you are only a $35+ Uber/Lyft from POM. Or stay cheaper outside of Miami (West Palm? Even Orlando) and then drive to Miami the morning of your cruise and park at the port.

    The ship will have Wi-Fi available all cruise long, but the fee is not small. 😥 Lots of the bars and restaurants on the pier will offer wi-fi, as do most of the beach bars. There are 3 cruise ship piers on Cozumel - what ship and what date?
  15. Super Bowl is in Miami in 2020 - OP is looking for 2021 dates. You are looking too far out - most hotels will not release rooms for reservations until about a year out -- look again in late Jan or in February 2020 and you should find availability.
