Huge port but well run. Staff had us checked in, car parked, luggage taken care of and on board in minutes. Great way to start a vacation.

The Lauderdale airport is terrible. For the thousands of travellers passing through, they have only one restaurant and a small variety store. The restaurant serves pizza and nachos and there are huge lineups to get in because THERE’S ONLY ONE RESTAURANT IN THE WHOLE AIRPORT!! There is not enough seating to accommodate all the people waiting to be allowed entry to the secure area. The city of Ft. Lauderdale should be ashamed. Read Less

We took a bus tour of Fort Lauderdale then boarded the "Carrie B" sternwheeler for a tour of the waterways around all the mansions and cruise docks. We had an incident where an impaired( allegedly)driver hit our bus and then blamed our driver for hitting him. This delayed us a bit getting to the airport since we had to transfer to a different bus, but no flight delay problems. It was not the tour bus drivers fault, just annoying. Read Less

It was very easy to get in and out of the port by shuttle from our hotel. We got there around 10:30 am and it was not crowded to get right in and on the ship.

We both use scoters so do our travel on our own in port. In Key West the free trolly at the gangway can take 2 scooters on each trolly or bus. They assist you on and off, very nice.

Be prepared to haggle in the straw market in Labadee. Everyone wants you to come see their wares. St. Martin and St. Kitts have people on the streets everywhere to try and get you to come in to the shops. Just say a polite no if you're not interested. We'd been to San Juan before and love going to the forts. Read Less

Was a very busy port and very confusing. We drove an oversized vehicle and could not park in the parking garage. Nobody that worked at the place knew where we were supposed to go to park. After circling around several times we finally found somebody that would park us in an oversized lot. It was kind of a pain. Read Less

We stayed at Hollywood Beach Suites before the cruise, just south of Ft Lauderdale. Beautiful groomed beach, warm water, long walks, sunsets. Lots of nice cafes and restaurants all along the seafront. 21/2 mile boardwalk for bike riding ... Read More

Rented a "GEM" electric car and enjoyed the freedom to go all over. The downside is there is not much parking and you may still need to walk quite a bit after finding a parking spot.
