It's too bad that they don't do a full cruise check in and give you your stateroom key at the bus desk any longer. I wonder why they stopped this nice little perk? I booked the Hyatt and Disney bus just for this reason and now they have discontinued it.

Will use CSI and eat at Fishlips

Only sailed out of Galveston, but after reading and watching on you tube CSI will be our pick. Will go eat at Fishlips night before. Been watching web cam for over a year that is located on top and all the sail always. We are looking at 12 to 13 hr drive. May stop in Tallashee for a night.

We stayed at the Residence Inn at Cape Canaveral. The evening we were there they served a dinner there a la carte with beverages. Was a quick 5 minute ride to port. We'll probably go there on our cruise next year.

That`s where we stayed as well, and it worked out perfectly for us. We got a rental from Budget and drove to Cape Canaveral (there were seven of us, so it was cheap). The Residence Inn was within walking distance of the Budget location in Canaveral, so we got checked in at the hotel, dropped off the car and walked back to the hotel (about 5 or 6 blocks). The morning of the cruise, we used the hotel contracted shuttle at $3 per person to get to the port - we were at the port by 11:25.

As for the hotel, it offered a VERY full continental breakfast. There were the standard yogurt, breads, cereals, waffles and juice, but also an oatmeal bar, tons of fruit and three or four hot options per day (which changed from day to day) like burritoes, scrambled eggs, sausages and bacon.

As well, on Monday - Wednesday they have a manager's reception over the supper hours where you could have a light supper.

We managed to get a two bedroom suite for the seven of us for around $200/night. We would stay at the Residence Inn again in a heartbeat.
