Welcome to Cruise Critic! If you'd like to participate on our forums by joining in the conversation, please Register Now! Be sure to visit our FAMOUS Roll Call forums, where you can meet other cruisers sailing with you and share a tour or shore excursion and SAVE MONEY!
Do they have a stay & cruise package? We're looking for parking with a stay at each end of the cruise.Here's some info I have compiled, taken mostly from Cruise Critic (Ports of Call section). I haven't stayed at any of these places; only know that they have been reported as having park and stay arrangements and/or shuttle to cruise port.
Park/cruise packages maybe available at:
Hilton Garden InnMiami Airport
Comfort Suites Miami Airport
Quality Inn MiamiAirport
Embassy Suites Miami Airport $174 plustax assume for Nov. 29 + 30 per website
Hampton Inn Coconut Grove
Hyatt Place Miami Airport West/Doral
Hampton Inn Miami Airport
www.parksleepfly.com & www.stay123.com are two sources to check for hotels offering cruise parking deals.
La Quinta East is budget place near MIA, popular with cruisers; offers free parking & one-way shuttle to POM. Free waffle breakfast. Taxi about $30 - Uber under $20. Hotel’s 5 miles W of downtown.
Embassy Suites awesome! I reviewed it here-http://thecheerfulcruiser.blogspot.com/2016/07/miami-cruise-port-hotel-review-of.html
"We like Hampton Inn & Suites Blue Lagoon S of airport. There is free shuttle from airport. Taxi to pier approx $30. Ifpay higher room rate get shuttle to POM. Nice pool. Safe area. Good hot breakfast included. Across street is strip mall with grocery store, Starbucks, liquor store & good Italian restaurant. A block away is drug store. Fair price." (Shows $155 plus 13% tax.)
Distance between MIA & POM may seem small but there are few hotels in location conducive to offering shuttles to both. Hotels that offer port shuttles for free run on their schedule, odds are first ship they stop at is not yours, tend to overbook and/or not have any more luggage room, charge by person while taxi is by trip.
