We (Myself and 3 others) are considering Cruising on the Allure, 25th Aug 2013 - 01 Sept 2013 from Ft Lauderdale.
Could someone please advise on what would be the best method to get from Ft Lauderdale to Orlando AFTER the cruise? Bare in mind we are Aussie, and driving would probably be a little daunting (Since you American's insist on driving on the wrong side of the road from the wrong side of the car ).
I have seen there is an Amtrak Train that leaves Ft Laud at 9:00am, but wondering of that would leave enough time to get off the ship and to the train station (Anyone have any ideas how long it would take in a taxi to get to the train station from the pier, and also what time is the earliest they start to allow passengers off the ship). Is there enough time for this?
Also considered maybe bus or coach, and even flying but doesnt seem like there are many flight options.
On another note, is this hurricane season? If so what's the likelyhood of a hurricaine occurring, and what do the ships do in the event of such happening.
Okay anything else people want to add I would love. Im a first time visitor to Florida and plan on spening a few days in Ft Laud before the cruise.... Any tips, I would LOVE! Thanks
Kelly (p.s Sorry if there is already a thread for this, I did look and couldnt find )
