  1. Kids? No kids? We had a great day at the Boatyard, but the water toys, pier, etc. tend to attract families. If you are looking for something quieter and with more adults try Harbor Lights or Lobster Alive.
  2. Ships typically offer a short day your at Kennedy Space Center, and then drop you off at the airport.
  3. UberXL will run about $70 each way for the 4 of you, no sharing or waiting.
  4. Shovel and bucket of a small float, sure. They do rent foam mats for footing in the water.
  5. Your other option is to use 2 one way rentals and avoid all the parking and miles inn your car. National, Alamo, Thrifty and Enterprise offer shuttles between their MIA airport location and the port.
  6. They do offer massages, but I have no idea of the prices. You can sit at the swim up bar and order drinks - I like to practice my Spanish and tip the bartenders extra for putting up with me..
  7. Playa Mia or Chankanaab, where there is a nice beach, small pool, sea lion shows, dolphins, etc. Adult admission is about $20 each
  8. It is Nachi Cocom, and if you want an uncrowded environment, limited to 130 guests per day, with great food, drinks and service it should be at the top of your list.
  9. Best is a stretch limo with a stocked bar. Cheaper options are discussed above.
  10. La Quinta East is a popular budget option near the MIA airport that offers parking packages and shuttle services to the port. Post cruise you will need a taxi or Uber to get back to your car for about $20-30.
  11. Since you will likely be arriving later in the afternoon most of the popular shared shuttles will not be available or cost effective. For 6 you might check out private transportation from Go Airport or Larry's Limos.
  12. Takes about 5 minutes for Uber or Lyft to arrive. Typical vehicle is a Prius, Camry or comparable size. You may need to put carry on bags on your lap. Uber will be just under $20, while UberXL or a van/SUV taxi will run about $30.
  13. You have time for a short day at Kennedy Space Center, 1/2 day at the beach, exploring Disney Springs, outlet mall, etc. For a 4:00 flight you need to be at the airport by about 2:30.
  14. We book right after we book the cruise, flights and hotels. Why wait?
