Hotels & Transportation

We had so much fun last year that we are repeating it again at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Fort Lauderdale.


The hotel has been recently refurbished and looks amazing. The normal rate per night for this time of year is $299/night but our special price is $249/night plus tax for a king room and $259/night plus tax for two double beds in the room. This rate includes complimentary transportation from the airport to the hotel, breakfast each morning and then transportation to the cruise port for the first two guests in the room. If you have more than two people in the room the additional cost is $10 pp. if you are driving, the hotel offers complimentary parking while you are on the cruise. This would be a savings of $220 over parking at the cruise port. Our rate is valid for two days prior to the cruise and two days after the cruise. If you need additional days please reserve your room and forward to Sherry the confirmation so that she can make the adjustment for you. Please note that all cancellations must be made no later than January 18th, 2018 in order to avoid a 1-night room and tax penalty. We look forward to seeing you all in Fort Lauderdale.

Great News for those on Southern! Our dedicated hotel we are staying at, will provide the transportation to the Cruise port as part of the booking with the hotel.

TIPS for Travel Arrangements

 Air Flights


The INTERNET is often the best way to book your flights. Choose your favourite airline. We have been happy with Southwest Airlines. Our luggage has never been a problem plus prices are very competitive. However if you are wanting help, Sherry is more then willing to arrange flights for you. There is an additional $25.00 fee per ticket if you book through Sherry.


It is a good idea to book a hotel the night before the cruise. Winter weather has it's surprises. It's better to be a day early and get on the ship then chance it.


When leaving to go home, your flight should not be before 1 pm on the same day we dock back into port. Do expect big delays departing from the cruise terminal.

Ground Transportations to Hotels & Ports


Our dedicated hotel has airport shuttle. Make sure you keep their phone number with you when you arrive at the airport. After you get your luggage you will likely head towards the hotel shuttle pick up area outside of the luggage area.


The Hotel also has provided us with complimentary transportation to the port for guest 1 & 2. Additional guest(s) in the same room a charge of $10 per person.


Also the hotel has complimentary parking for those that are staying there. However there is a $10 per person fee for those that need transportation to and from the Hotel/Port.


For most cruisers, after the Cruise, it will be up to you to find your own transportation back to your own destination.
