Wonder out of Miami

When is/was the first cruise out of Miami? I'm curious how the disembarkation process is at this port.

I'm trying to figure out what time we'll get of the ship for our Easter cruise so I can arrange transportation to FLL.

Very interested in finding out which terminal they are using and how early you can arrive and how the terminal is laid out. In particular, where the supervisors station is at, once you get to the check in area. We are on the May Panama Canal cruise and are hoping to upgrade at the port.
Many Thanks,

If anyone can tell me if the 4 night Wonder(Key west, Nassau and Castaway) has any time where they have Palo BRUNCH, I'd be very grateful

No sea days so no brunch. Wish it was different!

They use Terminal F, which is near the end closest to downtown Miami and the basketball arena. The luggage/drop off area is a mess, and you just have to find someone to take your bags. You enter and go upstairs, through security, and then down another hall to the check in area. It's like at an airport with the check in stations along the windows on your left and seating areas directly in front. The supervisor's desk is the first window to your left, the castaway club the next 8 or so, and the regular check in all the remaining windows. We got there about 11 and they were letting everyone in. It was rather crowded, but our cruise was full (CHristmas) so lots of kids, strollers, carry on bags. It isn't anywhere near as big as Port Canaveral.

To board the ship, there is another escalator at the far end of the terminal, and then you walk back along a gangway a level above the check in windows, so everyone can see you boarding (characters are often walking up there too). There is a photo area, then another KTTW check in, then another twisting gangway, and finally you board on to the 4th deck of the Wonder.

Thanks for this very good description. Now I know exactly what to expect.

Except that I screwed up - the supervisor's desk is the first on the RIGHT. All the check in windows are on the RIGHT as you walk in from security.

Sorry.
