  1. Roadway Inn is very basic, economy motel - should be close to $100-125

    Best parking advice for NCL cruise

    Lots of off site options with positive reviews - Park 'N Go is the one I see suggested most often.
  3. Larry's Limos or 4-5 UberXLs at about $30 per vehicle
  4. Luggage storage, for a fee, is available in all terminals. For details about the location for your terminal check http://www.broward.org/Airport/Services/Pages/Default.aspx
  5. If Luggage Valet does not work out you have options. Uber/Lyft/taxi to South Beach and store your bags at the Luggage Lounge. Explore SB and maybe a boozy brunch before heading to FLL Uber/Lyft/shared shuttle/taxi to FLL and store your bags there -- you'll have a few hours to explore (Las Olas for a boozy brunch and shopping, water taxi, etc.

    Port Everglades to Miami

    Taxi to Tri-Rail from PE should be about $15, or about $10 if you use UberX/Lyft - no need to go to FLL airport and then shuttle. You could taxi from PE to MIA for about $75+ or use UberX or standard Lyft for about $35+ - depending upon traffic/day of the week the ride takes about 40-60 min.

    Skye Reef for snorkeling?

    mitsugirly is a frequent poster and has a photo intensive review of Money Bar linked in her signature (at least it was there before the "upgrade" ) - check it out along with trip advisor reviews.

    Day in Tampa--What to do

    Off the ship and into a rental car about 9:00-9:30 and you need to be at TPA about 3:00 for your flight - 6 hours is not a lot of time. The beaches of Clearwater or exploring St. Petersburg are options. You can store your bags at the aquarium near the port until they close. The aquarium is good, and there are a few place nearby for lunch - or taxi to nearby Ybor city for more options.

    Port Canaveral Car Rental Shuttle

    Howdy neighbor! Joe is right - you are always better off with reservations compared to walking up to the counter.
  11. We cruised Rhapsody in June and were not charged the corkage fee in the MDR for either of our bottles - I tipped our waiter appropriately!
  12. The driver at MIA may ask to see your rental receipt. When picking up at POM the driver usually asks to see a print out of your reservation.

    Making airline reservations

    I would spend at least 1-2 days pre-cruise in Venice and you may want to tack on a day or two (I've been several times and could easily spend 4-7 days) post cruise to tour Rome. Check the Ital cruise board for suggestions for booking your own transport if you choose not to use the cruise air. In Venice there are many options, depending upon where your hotel is located, including a water taxi!

    Jet ski / excursion ideas for Cozumel

    Welcome to the boards. Here's a link to the Play Mia web site: www.playamia.com I would also do some homework on Trip Advisor

    Help with finding the right beach

    Check out Lobster Alive, just down from Harbor Lights. Pirate's Cove and Boatyard offer water toys, etc. and do not sound right for you.
