  1. Wet Money and Max karts allows online booking of golf carts, and I’m wondering if it’s worth it to book ahead, or just turn up and hope one is there? We have two ships in GT that day with a 7k passenger load. What are the odds of them running out, if we’re not some of the first off the boat?
  2. That’s the one, but I’m not seeing much around it on street view. The Burger King and Starbucks show a 10-12 minute walk each way, which doesn’t sound appealing at 9pm. The hotel looks great and I want to give it a try, but it just doesn’t seem convenient at this time. Thanks for taking the time to post!
  3. We’ll be traveling with 3 & 6 yo, and would like to spend our day in GT at Bohio. Will there be issues getting a taxi there and back?
  4. I should clarify that this is for FLL.
  5. I’ve done some searching and found that children under 6(?) require a booster at least, and under 4(?) require a full car seat, when traveling in a taxi/Uber/Lyft. Does this apply to shuttle services, ie airport and cruise transportation shuttles? I'll be traveling with a 3 & 6yo and have no desire to schlep car seats around if I don’t have to.
  6. I have a two queen setup at home2 (Dania Beach) and a 1 king/sofa bed at Homewood (also dania). Homewood is looking better and better as I can at least grab Wendy’s for dinner and walk to one of the gas stations for supplies - the Home2 doesn’t seem to have any kind of stores or food options near.
  7. A king+sofa bed is our preferred room type when traveling with the kids. They won’t notice a bar in the bed for one night.
  8. I’ve got refundable reservations for both hotels, so covered there. As for the shuttle, we’ve got a preschooler and a 1st grader - are taxis required to use car seats?
  9. November 2nd cruise departure, will be arriving at FLL with DW+DS+DS at about 8:30pm on the 1st. I have it narrowed down to these two hotels based on price and proximity. Home2 is $10 more for the night, has good reviews and looks pretty nice. Homewood is a brand we've stayed at in other locations, also have good reviews and looks nice. Both hotels offer free airport shuttle, and $10/pp cruise port shuttle. Seems like there's not much around either location food or store wise, but the Homewood at least has a couple of gas stations we can get snacks and maybe a case of soda from. Is there anything between the two to set one apart? Anything else I should look at in the $160(all in) range?
  10. I've just booked for the same cruise as the OP. Taking the wife and kids, and we are very excited. The first and only cruise for the wife and me was on the Destiny 10 years ago and we loved every minute. I got pretty concerned when I started reading about 1100 more passengers though, as it didn't jive with the information I'd seen. Glad I double checked, and have come up with the same info as Jamman - 420 more passengers at max capacity. Whew! I'm excited for the new features after the upgrade, and think it'll be a great time.
