Hertz port everglades

There is a separate Hertz office for the port. This is not the airport location. Be sure you pick the right one for the reservation, probably best to do on the phone.

St. Martin

I suggest the town of Marigot on the French side of St.Maarten/St.Martin. Easy to get a taxi from your ship's port. Nice restaurants, some French shopping and a market on the bay front. I stay...

Even a short flight can be a problem. We were taking a flight out of Miami to Europe and flying to Miami from Orlando, near where we lived at the time. Cruise was from Barcelona and we were flying...

Bathroom stuff

Yes, there is a clothesline in the shower. Yes the hair dryer is in the drawer by the vanity: I don't use it often but it is competent when needed. I too use the balcony for most hair drying when...

One of the nice things about Select dining is the options. Not only eat when you want but how many you'd like to eat with. Some nights you might want to eat with just the two of you, other nights...

Hertz Hotel

Probably Marriott - as I said I wasn't sure which hotel it was. Which ever address you got is the one, something like 2nd street? It is closest to the port.
Have fun.

another choice

I have used Park N Fly many times for cruises out of Ft Lauderdale. When you make an online reservation, pick Ft Lauderdale port, NOT Ft. Lauderdale airport. Good rates and good service.

What I do in Miami

I use Hertz rental cars: in Miami you drop them off in the city, at a hotel site. I think the hotel may be the Embassy Suites. Hertz has a free shuttle to the port or you can take a taxi which is...

We like tables for 6-8 but not set dining times. We have found over the years that most times the set tables are not full, often sitting alone at table for 6 or more. So we like the My time dining...
