We are flying into Miami the day of our cruise. Our flight lands at noon. I have only flown in on the day of once before. It was a disaster because I live in central time zone and flew out of an airport in the eastern time zone. I missed my flight to Orlando, but was lucky to get on one two hours later. The kids and grandkids got to ride to the port in a limo and I had to take a taxi (which was more as expensive as the limo one way). Since the port is not too from the airport, I am hoping that everything goes smoothly.

Miami dolphin game

Thanks for the advice everyone! We are actually thinking about switching our plane ticket to fly in on the 31st instead. Our tickets are on southwest, so there won't be a fee charged. It makes me too nervous to fly in the day of, plus my husband is a big Miami Dolphins fan, and they have a game on the 31st. I think we'll switch our tickets, and then my husband can go to the game, and I don't have to worry about any flight delays and missing the cruise the day of. It looks like the stadium is about 30 minutes from the airport, I know there will be traffic, so it will take longer. Is there anyone from Miami that can tell me about how long it will take from FLL to the stadium where the game is played?

I can't answer your question about traffic, but WOW, what a great way for your husband to start the trip!

That's great! What did you book and what did you end up getting? We booked this weekend a 9C GTY, so I'm wondering when we will get our room assignment....

We booked an 11C and got and 11C. Only time we have gotten an upgrade in 14 cruises was PC May 2013 when we booked VGT. We paid for a navigators verandah and got a regular verandah. But, upgrades matter not to us. We are onboard and don't have to sleep in a lifeboat! Oh, and we were just regular GTY this trip, booked in August.

Oh sorry! It looks like we got an 11A - paid for 11C. Guess that's an upgrade. Where it is at on the ship is the only difference, I think.

It's driving me crazy not knowing our room assignment. I've NEVER booked GTY. I like being able to pick where our room is, but oh well. Same as you - I'm just excited that we are able to be on this ship! I'm just anxiously awaiting our assignment

Just texted with son. He and grandson are directly across the hall from us. He is FL resident and so got that great FL rate for a verandah room. I just told him that he can board early with us (Platinum) in exchange for verandah privileges. He is good with that.

That couldn't have worked out better! Glad you got a nice cabin. We are 11A as well. Don't mind being interior, but really didn't want to be under a lot of noise. Glad you're all settled...we're getting closer....

Our grand niece and her husband visited us the last two nights. Now our assignment is to book 2 staterooms on Dec 17, 2014 four day cruise while onboard to get all those OB booking perks. One for us and one for them. We will also take them to WDW for 4 nights pre cruise. It will be their first DCL cruise, she has sailed one Carnival , he has never cruise. It will be their second wedding anniversary. We are excited! So, now we are booked for Oct 2014 and will be booked for Dec 2014.
