Embarkation:

We arrived at Port Everglades, sometime around 10:30am, and they had not yet begun security screening in the terminal.

There were probably 50 people ahead of us in line. Once they opened up, and went through the metal detectors, we went to the wine desk to pay the corkage on the extra bottles we were bringing on board. Simple math seemed problematic at first, but eventually everyone agreed that when bringing on 5 bottles, I only had to pay corkage for three of them. A quick show of our medallions and passports and we were directed to sit downstairs. A female local agent with an alpha-male complex insisted that the priority lounge was only for elite, and not for platinum.

Cabin Review

Interior

Several dings on the wall, but the cabin was nice and clean, and we love the location.

Port Reviews

St. Thomas

We walked from the dock in Havensight to Downtown. It was a lovely way to work off a few sea-days worth of cheesecake.

Barbados

We walked from the port to downtown, and a cab driver told my wife that I was "cheap" for wanting to walk instead of riding in his cab. He had the nerve to ask us again when we returned to the port later on.

Antigua

A lovely return visit to Beach Limerz
