Saturday, April 11 flew into Miami, Florida with my two children ages 6 and 9.  Miami airport was horrible.  I have never seen so many people in one congested space trying to catch the hotel shuttle.  I am glad we were meeting my husband who drove in from a business meeting with our luggage and met us at our hotel.  I can't imagine trying to handle luggage and children in this mob.Our first night ...

My wife, son and I left Michigan on Saturday, April 11, 2009, everything went smooth and arrived in FLL about 4:00 PM. Once arrived I turned on my cell phone and had a message waiting from SAS Transportation. The message was from the driver who said once we retrieved our luggage to call and they would be there within a few minutes. Went down to luggage, called and within 5 minutes we were on our ...

Arrived two days early and stayed at Embassy Suites Fort Lauderdale.  Great hotel in great location, you can walk to everything including a Publix supermarket.   Arranged transport through Miami 411.  They did a great job arriving early and ready for my family of five.  Embarkation was a breeze arrived at port at 10:45AM and we were on the ship at 11:30AM in second group called.  Went to ...

Made the drive from Charlotte to Miami with a stop over in Fort Pierce.(nothing to do with the cruise,but Cobbs Landing has good food).Arrived at the port at about 11am. The signs and directions could be better but the Freedom is right in your face as soon as you cross the bridge so you can't miss her.Dumped the luggage off to a waiting porter who was very helpful and parked up the car.($140 for ...

Step 1, go read the awesome review by delorean.girl http://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=52300 The ship is basically 220 VAC. But there are two 110 VAC US style outlets on the desk. Bring a power strip or extension cord if you have a lot of devices to charge or power. There is also a single 110 or 220 outlet above the mirror for a shaver. There are no ...

Embarkation was a breeze. Everyone was very helpful, and it was only a matter of time before we were on the ship. It is very clean, and most of the staff are helpful and friendly. Our stateroom attendant was a little shy, but he was great. He was always fixing up our room when we were out, so he def. did he job well. I have to say that I was disappointed in our dinner waiter. As most frequent ...

Arrived via Miami Airport. Quick and easy check-in around 1pm. I always am sure to get a soda card to ensure I can get soft drinks at any time. This card was around $47 and should be purchased the first day. If you purchase a card after day one, it is NOT pro-rated. (Card will be this same price even if you buy it on the 3rd day!) Anytime you make this purchase or a purchase at any bar, they ...

Our trip did start off so good we landed in Ft Lauderdale and had a reservation with Hertz to rent a Suv for the drive to Miami, well after standing in line for 1 hour and then being told that they did not have any Suv's available (booked in January)they tried to put us into a small Ford car. It took us over 2 hours to get something that would carry the 4 of us and our luggage. I was not impressed ...
