Amazing Secret River (Cozumel) was outstanding. Also enjoyed white water rafting in Costa Rica. Lots of good excursions, actually. The western has more "active" options. 4x4 with caves in Aruba...

Oasis class is far superior to anything Carnival has. It's just not a comparison. The free food options are also much better on Oasis. Carnival has what, a buffet and main dining room... that's...

Not Peanut. Phil Foster. It's just kind of funny you aren't familiar with it considering it's the main attraction off the Blue Heron bridge :)

Lulu's is a tourist bar and Capital Grille is a national chain. Neither are notable seafood spots or anything I would suggest to someone who has limited time in a new place.

Lauderdale by the Sea is definitely the best for snorkeling off the beach. It's famous. Fort Lauderdale, in general, has outstanding shore diving. If you do snorkel off the beach, you MUST have a...

Too funny. I just don't expect to hear Cruise Critic people mentioning the Plantation Diner. Glad you enjoyed it.

Nothing is walking distance from Residence Inn. Billy's would be a short drive to Hollywood, south of Margaritaville. Intracoastal views.

If you haven't been, Billy's Stone Crab is also outstanding during stone crab season. The only truly local seafood in Florida, really.

You can book an excursion through NCL that with airport drop off. The airboat tour is one of the options. NCL offers this excursion out of Miami with drop off at FLL. Just book the correct one, as...

It'll be clean. It's a well rated Marriott. It's in a safe area, but I wouldn't say "nice" - as there really isn't anything around it other than Outdoor World. That and Rustic Inn is pretty close....

The times available to pre-book are not too great. Someone said they only allow about 30% prebooking? Does that mean if I swing by the concierge on the first day, I should be able to switch the...

The huge ships and entertainment. Besides that, they are no different than any other mass market line. If sailing on smaller ships, I'd take any mass market line that had the itinerary I wanted.

I would suggest looking in Davie and Plantation areas. It's a bit more west but right off 595. 595 ends at the port so it's only a 15 min drive. Usually cheaper hotels.

That's really stupid. Kind of like Sabor on RCI. Now it's empty and useless. Was hoping to swing in for some nachos and drinks, but I'm not spending $35 or whatever on nachos...

Thanks for the update! Glad you had a good time. I had family at the game last night too. Some girl scout event thing.

Is the Margaritaville cover charge just for dinner? Menus I've seen suggest a reasonably priced a la carte option. This is a place we would definitely consider for lunch and drinks.

Thanks. The dining is part of the reason we made the choice to give NCL a try. They seem to offer a pretty solid package.

So is the general consensus that we should just make our reservations now for when we think we'll want to go? Can always change with the concierge I guess. I'm just curious how truly necessary it...

Good info, and good idea! We are doing LeBistro and Cagneys for sure. Then probably Bayamo as I'm a seafood guy. I'm an Italian snob so cruise ship Italian is not terribly appealing.

Good to know. We will just reserve ahead of time. Would be nice if they kept some last minute haven slots avail though!

I can't imagine Costa Maya snorkeling being better than Nassau.
