Fortunately we were able to nip dad's in the bud. I should be going home on Saturday.

I am so ready for this cruise!!!

We are staying in South Beach as we are there a few days and we can walk to so many places from there. Please post the name of the company and then I can compare prices etc. I do like to have things booked so I can cut down on the stress!!!

I'm starting to "think" about packing...gotta start sometime. I noticed the schedule in one of the first posts. Looks like two formal nights, one semi-formal night. Are we pretty sure about this? I almost never get dressed up, so I look forward to looking a little nicer on the cruise. Since the 7-nights generally have one formal and one semi-, I wondered if maybe we'd have two of each.

Anybody know?

I know DCL was called an asked. Also on our TA there were 2 formal nights and 1 semi-formal so should be the same. Good reminder for me though... I have to try on my clothes and see if they'll fit post-baby Can't wait to see you guys! It's so soon

The first formal night is the first sea day and the second formal night is Cabo day. The Semi formal is the day after the canal.

I have used SAS to get to the Miami port several times, both from FLL and from a hotel in the Ft Lauderdale area (where I can park my car for the whole trip, if we drove there).

It says on their website that phone reservations are not accepted. So, you need to fill out the form on the SAS website - www.ridesas.com - and you will receive a reply very quickly telling you when, and the number, to call when you are ready for pickup. When we are picked up at a hotel, it is at a pre-arranged time. From FLL, since you would have given them your flight number, they will know when they should expect your call. We have never had to wait long.

Guess I am lucky. The hotel I am staying at in FLL has a fee shuttle. Then I am getting a car and dropping it off at MIA. Then it looks like they have a free shuttle to the port. So no need to arrange any type of shuttles.

Thank you Marilyn. I think I saw the fact that they didn't accept phone reservations to mean no pre reservations for some reason. I will certainly do as you said, it will be another tick off my long list.
