Fort Lauderdale Post Cruise late flight- Luggage? Day pass?

Recommended Posts



We have a late flight  -10:30pm after our cruise.

Any advice on how we can still enjoy a day...even though we'll have luggage?

Storage place?   or Hotel that would help us?

What did you do or what do you know of??


Thank you so much

You will have a lot of time post cruise.  Normally you are off the ship by 9am - 9:30am.  Maybe a day hotel would be best for you.  There are a number of them that have day rooms available. Two weeks ago we were going to post cruise at the Rodeway Inn but our plans changed and we didn't need to use it.  The cost was $80  up till 6PM and we could add a couple more hours for $20 more.   We thought we would store our luggage there and Uber to Las Olas and walk the beach and then just relax by the pool.

I have reached out to CREW MAIL SERVICES and for $5 a bag they hold your bags until 6pm.

That seems pretty good?

They are 5 minutes from the port and 10 minutes from the airport

and about a mile to the beach walking.

You can also store your bags at the airport.


www.resortpass.com is one source for resorts and large hotels offering day passes to their pool, spa and beach facilities.  Tip them to hold your bags.


You can always rent a car for the day and go where you want.  www.sunny.org has lots of ALL area tourist info.

Since you have a 10:30 flight, you don't really need to be at the airport before 9:30 so I would hotwire or priceline a room for that night but not stay the night.


You can check in as soon as you get off the ship and use the hotels amenities even though your room may not be ready.


If you get a beach front hotel or one near the beach, you can have a great day at one of our beaches, change, shower, go out to dinner, pick up your luggage back at the hotel, head to the airport.


That late trying to find something to do ALL DAY would be exhausting for me without a hotel room.

I used this company when I had a late flight.  Picked up our luggage at the cruise port.  Met us at an arranged time at the Airport at the proper terminal.   Then you can go off and do whatever . . . .  we had them take our large suitcases and our carryons.
