  1. UberX or Standard Lyft was about $35+ pre-virus; if you need UberXL the fare will be closer to $70. You can open up the app and do a mock booking now to check the current fare.
  2. You could rent a car FLL-MIA, but it would be easier to use Uber or Lyft for about $40+, a cab for about $75+, or the Tri-Rail train for about $5. Your call. 😊
  3. Two UberXL (usually a van or large SUV) should get all 8 plus bags to the port.
  4. Might be the Ultra Music festival. Look for hotels away from downtown - Coconut Grove, etc. or possibly fly into and stay near FLL, then Uber/Lyft to POM the morning of your cruise.
  5. I believe they used to use Pirate's Cove beach club, but that may have changed as cruising starts to spin up again. If they allow independent excursions there are several other beach clubs lined up along the bay - Boatyard, Lobster Alive, Harbor Lights, etc. All will be happy to take your $$ for drinks.
  6. Grills, near PC searves great seafood and is very popular with the locals.
  7. Uber and taxi drivers follow the money - if there is a cruise they will be available. You can always check with the hotel front desk for their transportation recommendations.
  8. Easy enough to stay near FLL and make your way to POM the morning of your cruise. UberXL from FLL area to POM should run you about $75 each way. www.sunny.org has lots of hotel and tourist info. Many cruisers choose to stay in the downtown/17th street area (Embassy Suites, Hyatt, etc.) with lots of hotels and nearby dining options good luck! 😎
  9. Check Larry's Limos - often suggested on this board. 😎
  10. Some drivers would not turn on the meter and "quote" a flat rate fare of whatever they thought they could get away with. On the meter it should be about $15+
  11. Hotels in the Rocky Point area, near TPA, are popular with cruisers (Chase Suites, Hilton, etc.); pre-virus many offered both airport and port shuttles, or you could Uber to the port for under $20. Nice area on the bay with several dining options. Westshore area is the closest to TAP airport. Pre-virus I would say an 11:00 flight home is reasonable, but without knowing about post cruise screening I would choose a later flight. Have a great cruise! 😎
  12. Bad experiences years ago with Fox, Thrifty and other discount brands. If you regularly rent from National or Avis and have some sort of loyalty status with them you should have no issues.
  13. I would choose the later flight to be safe with whatever screening/disembarkation procedures are in place when you cruise. If you wind up with a few hours to kill you can store your bags at the airport for a fee and then head out for a boozy lunch.
  14. www/sunny.org has lots of FLL area hotel and tourist info.
  15. Several. Park 'N Cruise and Lots of Honor are the most often suggested on this board.
