Alan, I was thinking this onboard 20% off offer is to try to get the bookings up early so they don't have to do the fabulous offers/rates that happened this year. Better for DCL at 20% off than almost 50%!

I see that many of you are flying to FLL. Doing a search around the possible dates/times (can't be exact because the dates don't go that far out on United yet), I can see that it's about $150 cheaper pp for us. $900! Wow, would've never thought to do it that way. Thanks for the tip! Even if we limo it to the port, we are still saving huge. Thank you!

Plus for us, it allows us to fly SWA, much better luggage policy.

Everyone seems to love SWA. Too bad their map doesn't go a little more to the left haha. For now, we are stuck with United (we fly the same airline all the time to get Premier status).

How far is the drive from Fort Lauderdale to Miami? With only two airline tickets to balance out the cost of a rental car/gas/time, I'm wondering if it's as worth it.

If I'm not mistaken, it was 25 miles/30 min. versus 7 miles/15 min. from MIA. Well worth it for us, because we have so many people (6).

Not going to happen. If you want to use SWA you will have to fly to Ft. Lauderdale and have to make at least one stop that may or may not involve a change of planes.

When we did the drive it took a hour, but that was because of traffic on I-95. We left out hotel in Ft. Lauderdale about 8:30 and got to the car rental facility at MIA about 9:30 with a stop right by the car rental facility to get gas. We were on a shuttle and heading for the port at 10.

We'll be flying in the day before and staying somewhere by the port. Looks like the FLL & SAS option might work out cheapest and easiest. Good to know, now just have to wait for SW calender to catch up. Don't they know we have vacations to plan?

This last PC cruise we flew to FLL as we were flying from New York on JetBlue. We really liked JetBlue. Previously in the US we have used Southwest and were very happy with them, particularly with the baggage allowance, but after the cruise we wanted to fly back to NY from a more local airport to Disneyland so we chose Jetblue for both flight this time. With JetBlue you get 1 bag free and pay $40 for the second but you can look at prices to compare overall costs. Might not be much difference. Free drinks and snacks too.

We used Go Airport shuttle from FLL as we were told SAS didn't now go to South Beach where we were staying. We booked an individual car though I believe they do multi passenger transport too. It was excellent and we would use them again. It didn't seem to take long at all to get to South Beach. Very nice car and driver.

It was great using the smaller airports.

SAS is a shuttle company.
