I would not stay in Miami.
My DH is a Florida Native..and it is hard for him to visit Miami. he remembers when it was USA. We don't speak Spanish and in an emergency...that is a big drawback. ..
You also might not like the far northeastern part of the US where many people speak French .
I love Miami...It's my absolute favorite sail away port!! We always stay at the Marriott with a bayview room to see the ship when we wake up (usually it's shipS...many
I love the entire South Beach area...LOVE Bayside shopping/restaurants.
There is so much to see and do.
I love to fly in to Miami, stay in Miami and do as much as possible IN Miami before we get on the ship.
Embarking in Miami is fabulous...they have it down to a science.
I have sailed from FLL once (not impressed)...I have never felt the need to stay outside of Miami for any reason.
I am confused as all heck about the 'fear factor' here
