What is your hotel’s name?  I am looking for a Miami hotel.  How did you get to the hotel - taxi (how much) and the port (how much).

 

I have been in FLL where people just drop the scooters all over the place, on the grass, and in the middle of the sidewalks and you have to try to get around them.


it is the Hyatt Centric Brickell Miami. The taxi ride was about ride was about $25. I think we will Uber to the port and it varies by class.  You can investigate that pricing on their app. 
 

As for the scooters, it’s like some sort of Zombie Apocalypse.

Along both ways of the walk way we saw these scooters.  So many they seemed to be abandoned.  I can imagine the drunks scooting home on these on a Friday night, if not stumbling over them on their walk.

Have seen the same scooters in DC and Nashville.  In Nashville there were so many on the sidewalk it almost became dangerous.  One night on the way back to our room saw the truck picking them all up at the end of the day.  Interesting idea just don't get it, too many issues to me.

 

As always look forward to your live reviews, very much appreciate them, thanks!

LOL, we have those all over Atlanta and they are evil and will literally try to kill you. I am not scared of my Corvette at any speed but I will not go near one of these.

I tried to, but she quoted Hall and Oats with a  “I can’t go for that, no can do”.

 

Umm, that's our cruise, not yours. 😉

Come to San Francisco Bay Area....there are e-ride scooters everywhere. :classic_biggrin:

 

And we stayed at the Doubletree in Miami. Very nice, close to port, Publix and CVS, food court downstairs, warm cookies. It is in the Hilton family of hotels.

Almost, but it’s like comparing Beiber to The Foos with 80s music.

So what time do people wake in Miami on cruise day?  
 

That would be 6am cause that’s when the neighbor‘s three roll off garbage dumpsters bins get picked up. Just when you are almost asleep, another truck comes to do the 10 minute process again. Nothing like the back up safety horn squealing repeatedly first thing in the morning. 

 

Whatever happen to the day that you just woke early because one was excited. 😉

Things are looking good.  Just Lorenzo.  
 

They should have called it Lorenzo Lamas. After all it took a turn and disappeared just like his acting career.

Uber Mario is coming. Just taking an interesting route. Maybe he’s Super Mario. Someone needs to edit the Nintendo game music.
 

Just hit play.
