  1. A glimpse of what's to come later this year! It is great to see a Carnival ship at their new home. Port Canaveral Terminal 3 is slated for completion on May 20. This will be home for the Mardi Gras and other ships. The terminal is looking great!
  2. Thanks! Good info! Which shuttle van company did you use? Did you prebook or just walked up (if so, did they accept cash or credit)?
  3. Holiday Inn Club offers the best views of the harbor channel (and later this year Terminal 3 will be right in front of the hotel). You can aso see the ships in the distance from the top floors of some rooms at Homewood Suites and Country Inn
  4. The restaurants nearby are on this map: Zarellas, Zachary's, Kelsey's, Preacher Bar and Thai Thai
  5. The location is at the airport where all the other rental agencies are. Unfortunately as far as I know Sixt does not offer free shuttles to/from PortMiami but it is best to call and ask. These companies do:
  6. Indeed, here is the comparison table. The new hotels start to open in April:
  7. Ditto to all the above. I stayed there and loved it. Had a great view of the cruise port. More pictures and info about the hotel here: http://cruiseportmiami.us/downtown-miami-hotels/ This image shows the neighborhood: View from my 7th floor room:
  8. Option 1 is OUT - friends are not staying at a hotel and cannot get parking unless some negotiation Option 2 - BEST if you want to save money Option 3 - most convenient but most expensive For option 2, look at this table and pick one:
  9. And here is a better image of PortMiami Car Rental locations with free shuttles:
  10. No, you are mixing up the companies!! Take a look at the image below - it shows the company locations with free Port shuttles. For more information, please read: http://lets-see-america.com/car-rental-at-port-of-miami/
  11. I recommend you take the tour. You travel a different route to the KSC and avoid the general entrance lines and lines for the standard bus tour (included in standard admission). This will save a lot of time. You may also get to see a bit more of the active launch areas than the standard tour (your route depends on the actual rocket launch activity on the day of your tour - some areas are closed to the public during those times). You may also get to stay a bit longer (for some tours the KSC offer extra time to watch the IMAX films, etc).
  12. As promised! I took these pics yesterday: Springhill Suites - Feb 2020 Hampton Inn - Home2Suites - Feb 2020
  13. I need to go take latest pictures today of these new hotels - rumor has it the Sringhill Suites are opening in April this year.
