Funny. We live in South Florida only 35 min. from Port Everglades, so we do just the opposite.


I should also mention that we get free laundry and dry cleaning on board - so that allows for...

Had to laugh, because I do the same thing to my DH. We have a 15 nt TA followed by 3 nts in Europe coming up later this month -- and I have packed numerous things for my DH and myself that will not...

We are staying 3 nights after we disembark Royal on May 12th. First night at Marriott and other 2 nights at airport Hilton. We were planning to buy City Passes, but would like to...

Not to be rude, but this board is for the purpose of Danish Viking sharing useful information, not for people to "chat". There are plenty of other boards for that. Please don't make us read through...

You can see the airport on lower left, the port on right and 17th St. Causeway near top right with Publix, Winn-Dixie and convenience stores.

Most European men (at least those over 35 or 40 years of age) do not wear shorts unless they're at the beach. It's considered to be in poor taste.

There is at least one very valid reason to "not dress like an American": con artists and pickpockets target Americans because they know that Americans typically carry a lot of cash and credit cards,...

These days, more like $15-$20 per cab, plus tip. So 2 couples could split fare; 3 if a van.

FLL is my home airport and I have never experienced an airline preventing early check in there. How could they when most people check-in online? Indeed, we have gone early on many occasions to...

Taxi! Will be less than $20 including tip, and you can share with another couple.
Another poster said you can't check in early at FLL. I've lived here for over 30 years and have never found that to...

Right now, there is no PBI Tri-Rail station. They closed the old one about 15 years ago, and they are just building a new one right now. To take public transportation, you'll have to get off at the...

In Italy, you're best not wearing sandals or flats, but actual walking shoes. Merrell has some nice ones that don't look like athletic shoes so you won't scream "tourist' or look dowdy. But you'll do...

Um, respectfully, I think the OP seriously way over-packed for a 7 day cruise.
For long European/TA cruises, I take 2 prs flats, 2 pairs heels, 2 prs walking shoes and if weather dictates, 1 pr....

Especially slow if it is a Saturday or Sunday: more ships overall and the 5000 px Allure/Oasis sail on weekends (one on Saturdays, one on Sundays).

I don't believe the OP didn't asked anything about the airport. They asked: "Where and who is the best place to hire a car at the cruise terminal once we get off the ship with the kids and the...

In Fort Lauderdale, the airport and port rental car companies are often at the same location since the port and airport are next to each other.

Almost all of the car rental companies have...

Sorry, I certainly did not mean to confuse anyone, but the tone with which you addressed my post was quite rude and unneccessary. I did specifically indicate that the hydrofoils go from Molo...

We're on the cruise with you. Easy to get the hydrofoil to Capri. In Naples boats to Capri leave from two different docks, which are linked by a free shuttle service: hydrofoils leave from Molo...
