Recently I had the pleasure of traveling on Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas out of the port of Miami. I love flying Southwest because their amenities suit my needs so I flew into Fort Lauderdale and stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn the night before the cruise’s departure. The Hilton offered a free shuttle from the airport to the hotel and I made sure to book a room that included breakfast.
Helpful Hint #1: Fly to your port the day before your cruise departs. You do not want to miss your cruise due to a delayed flight.
Boarding the Ship
My pre-arranged transportation from the hotel to the Port of Miami for the next day gave me peace of mind so that I could explore the area, get dinner and enjoy a good night’s sleep. The next morning we were dropped off near the escalator to enter the port terminal and were quickly on our way to our adventure!
I was in awe of the state-of-the-art Royal Caribbean cruise line terminal in Miami. Talk about efficient! We literally “cruised” through check-in and security and were on the ship in less than 15 minutes.
