  1. Why would you? Plenty of parking. Just pull in and park.
  2. Good location to kill some time and hang out, too.
  3. I'd take 11:50 in a heartbeat. Just do self-assist disembarkation at Miami. You'll easily make the flight. We are home from PortMiami by 8AM and we live a bit further than the FLL airport. I couldn't imagine having trouble making an 11:50 flight if you disembark early. That's not even remotely stressful. I'd hate to have to sit around an extra 5+ hours if I didn't have to.
  4. Is it 4 adults? You can also just grab 2 separate Uber X's and get to the port separately. Why complicate things trying to stick together?
  5. I'm not sure why you would go get New England seafood when visiting FLL. 🙂 It's a good restaurant if nearby, but if looking to kill some hours, I'd do something on the beach or intracoastal.
  6. All of the Fort Lauderdale/downtown/beach area is close to the airport. I'd go to Bo's Beach, personally, for what you are looking to do.
  7. 3.5 hours round-trip sounds about right. Disney is outside of Orlando, on the opposite side you are coming from.
  8. For Celebrity you would just park at the midport garage. Very simple. Lots of spots.
  9. Under 3 is in the nursery. I don't have a picture but it's right next to the regular camps. It's small and has a play area and another section with cribs. They have a TV and some toys. The staff seem to enjoy playing with the kids. Pricing, I can't remember but it wasnt terrible. $7 per hour maybe. Possibly a bit more but not outrageous.
  10. I found NCL to be a slight step up in almost every way over Carnival. Ships are a bit nicer, entertainment and food a bit better, etc. The real difference is "value" - I certainly wouldn't pay a lot more for NCL over Carnival, however. The major difference is the freestyle dining I'd say.
  11. Yup, was thinking the same thing. I find US1 far more terrifying than i95 and the 1248 stop lights would be a blast!
  12. Plantation to PortMiami will be a smooth, quick ride pretty much anytime after 9am. Probably looking at 35-40 minutes tops. Coming back will be even faster. PortMiami to FLL in the morning, even on a Monday, is a 30-35 min ride. Traffic heads in to Miami in the morning, so you are going against traffic. Google actually shows the ride as fast as 26 minutes, on a Monday at 8:30am. Get traffic out of your head. With your plan, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. There won't be traffic either way barring an accident.
  13. If they love Royal, what's wrong with that? Sometimes it's as simple as just sticking with what you know and are comfortable with. We go to the same ski resort every year, we know what to expect and like it.
  14. Nobody is pledging loyalty. When another line comes out with a ship that is equivalent to Oasis, I'd be more than happy to sail it.
  15. For what it's worth, we not only sailed Escape, but we sailed in the haven with spa access. We have also sailed Harmony. We would take an inside closet in the engine room on Harmony over the Haven in Escape, even for the same price. Totally unimpressed. Escape would need to be half price for us to consider it again. It's not even close. Sail Harmony
