Just got off of the Fantasy - Details for new cruisers

Hi. I just got off of the Fantasy today. It was our family's first cruise. I thought that I would share a few details that might be helpful for first time cruisers.

Before the cruise -
We decided to fly in the day before the cruise. We used ExecuCar for transportation from the Orlando airport to the hotel in Port Canaveral. The service was perfect. As soon as we got to the baggage claim area, we saw the driver holding up a sign with our last name on it. He walked us to the baggage area and then helped take our luggage to the vehicle. It was $30 per person, so $150 plus tip for our party of five.

We stayed at the Country Inn and Suites that night. My husband and I were traveling with three teens, so we booked a room with a queen bed that had an additional separated area with three twin beds. The hotel was fine. The free breakfast was average.

They have a shuttle service for $5 per person. We called the hotel the morning of our arrival and requested a shuttle time. When we checked in, they gave us a slip of paper with our shuttle time on it. The next morning we went into a meeting room and checked in. When they called our name, we went outside to board the shuttle.

The shuttle dropped us off at the port. They handed our bags to a cruise employee and we didn't see them again until they were delivered to our room.
