  1. Weird, when I put in the Budget car rental code for the cruise terminal location, the price is HALF what it is for the MIA location. If I'm readying the previous posts correctly, both locations are actually at Miami Intern. Airport? Am I correct?
  2. Well for better or worse we booked "The Mint" in downtown Miami. We actually got a very good deal and We have until Tuesday to cancel so if anyone has negative information, I'd love to hear it. Thanks for your input.
  3. I guess part of my hesitation is that I just don't want to end up in a sketchy part of town(or a sketchy hotel) for 3 days
  4. Sorry I meant to include more information. We will be there 2/26-29 prior to a cruise, just the two of us, flying into MIA. We could possibly rent a car, but were trying to avoid it because of the city driving and parking fees at hotels. I was thinking the Brickell area, do you have any experience with any of the hotels in that area? Right now they are pretty high in price. I was hoping to avoid another $1,000 add on to the cost of this vacation! Thanks for your info.
  5. I am going to tag onto this thread for some much needed advice on Miami hotels. We are flying into town on a Wednesday and our cruise doesn't leave until Saturday. We are looking for a hotel in the $200/night range, but close to some dining and shopping so we don't have to rent a car, We would definitely like to avoid questionable areas as we'd like to walk places. Any suggestions from those of you that are familiar with Miami? (sorry for hijacking the thread, but I think we are both looking for the same thing.
  6. I found by past experience that "processing" does not necessarily mean your bid has been accepted.
  7. Today there was a large price drop on my Cruise, an H2 is now just a couple of hundred more than i paid for an H4. The offer to bid on the H2 starts at $750. I emailed our travel agency to try and upgrade (Cruise is2 weeks away)and was told that the cruise is entirely sold out, but a mock booking shows cabins left in all haven categories. Would you go to NCL directly with the request, can I bypass my travel agent like that?
  8. My daughter cruised out of here last summer and said that there is parking on the pier, very close just a short walk and you are in the terminal, is this no longer the case. She also said there were police directing traffic and pointing you in the right direction for parking. We are headed down in 10 days, I hope that it hasn't changed.
  9. I have a question related this, we have the three dinner promo for two of us, so six dinners, there will be 3 of us sailing, can i buy the6 dinner package and have it distributed so each of us will have 4 dinner credits?
  10. I tweeted them my concern with the added upcharge and they wanted to talk to me in a direct message and not answer my tweet publicly. I haven't gotten back to them and I'm not sure I will, since I'd like this discussed out in the open. I'm just very disappointed that they continue to add these small upcharges. I love NCL, I love that they sail out of the northeast and I don't want to switch, but I just think they'd be better off raising the price of the cruise by $5 if they are so desperate for money for their stockholders.
  11. I was just about to buy extra meals through the dining plan but have put that on hold, I might as well eat in the main dining room I AM really feeling nickeled and dimed to death by NCL and its really not even the money, its just the way they go about it. I booked a last minute cruise with them because I wanted to sail out of Boston, but I will definitely be considering other lines, I feel like I've accepted all the upcharges I want to from them.
