Yes!! Quick, easy to learn and all ages can play. It can be loud, so playing in the pub will be perfect!

Booked our flight for the beginning of the cruise. There was a significant difference between flying into MIA and FLL. By flying into FLL we are saving over $160/person. For the two of us I figured that was more than enough to pay for transportation between our FLL hotel (Springhill Suites) to the Port of Miami.

I know that others are flying into FLL as well. How are you getting from there to the port?

We haven't figured out yet if we will take a cab from FLL to a hotel that has a free shuttle to MIA to pick up the Disney bus or what we are doing. I am really upset that they are not offering transfers from FLL

We are also flying into FLL for a significant savings plus free bags. I have hired a private car for the 3 of us to the Marriott Biscayne Bay a lot of people also recommend SAS shuttle.

We used our miles and actually got a better itinerary going into Miami, so we took it. But the other two branches of our family are flying into FLL about the same time despite different airlines, so they booked a shuttle to take them to our Miami hotel. That hotel has a free shuttle to the port for embarkation day.

We are flying into FLL it was significantly cheaper than flying into MIA. We don't land until 10pm the night before so we will take a cab to the hotel, I've read that it's about 45 min and costs around $60 which is reasonable to me. The next day we will take another cab to the port.

Looks like many of us will be flying into FLL. We are too! We are renting a car because we are staying with relatives for a few days before the cruise.
