we had a really great time in the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay.


It's located across the harbour, so you can the "your" ship arriving in the morning.

Friendly staff, good breakfast buffet and nice, clean rooms.

They offer special pre-cruise packages incl. a free shuttle to the ship.

Furthermore the hotel is located very close to the Miami Bayside Marketplace:


Very nice to have some dinner, shopping and entertainment.

We are also taking a cruise out of Miami. We will be arriving a couple of days early and were wondering what the best way is to work this.

If we stay at a beach hotel what is the best way to get to the ship and if it is taxi how much do you think it would be (say North Miami Beach Area)

If we stay near the port how would we get back and forth to the beach without breaking our modest piggy bank?

Any and all info is very much appreciated.
