Also note that when you get close to Miami, the turnpike merges with I95 and the road turns into a toll road. It is best to have the "Sun Pass" so that you can by-pass the toll booths. Traffic in the mornings is terrible. My MIL lives in Boca Raton and we often drive down to the Miami area for 1 reason or another. Driving around Miami is not one of my most favorite cities to drive in but once you get to the Port of Miami it's all worth the headaches!

We were on the Wonder last year sailing to the Western Caribbean and loved the ship! Looking forward to our upcoming cruise so that we can enjoy the Wonder and it's crew again....
Thank you so much for the info..but we have now changed our cruise to Oct 2015- The Magic going to Grand Cayman. Hope you all have a wonderful sail aboard the Wonder!

As far as I know, it's just MIA. You may want to check with the hotel, though.

We've never stayed at this Springhill. This will be our first trip
to MIA. We're using a Marriott reward night.

Hi everyone! We are also from the UK doing a B2B with the sailing on the 12th. There's me, DH and DD5. Very much looking forward to our next cruise after Christmas on the Dream this year. This is our Easter celebration!
We'd also be very interested in taking part in the FE but aren't on FB- the FE is the highlight of our cruise for DD!
