Key Largo had been a nice surprise, kind of wish we had spent more time there but we had already planned to make our way north.
But before we make our way to the Everglades and the Gulf coast - today will be a day full o' family. We first stopped off in Miami for another visit with my Uncle. This time he drove us to lunch in his mini van …
... tour with some friends. They’re Queen’s Grill folks, so we won’t see very much of them. However, we are delightfully surprised when we see Conrad and Ellen boarding as “in transit” folks. They remember us as well and we have a wonderful reunion as we wait to check-in. Conrad and Ellen were our dinner compatriots on the QM2—we were united against a horrible couple from South Africa, who were so demanding ...

After dinner, Ron and Nancy went back to the casino and Ady and Dee to our room to get ready for the next day's excursion in Aruba.
Ron won a $500 jackpot, and Nancy came back with about $100.
The ship was a little rocky tonight, so Dee and Ady took a half of a Dramamine and went to bed early.

We are in the middle of ocean sailing for Haiti and will port there tomorrow around 9am. The water is so blue and calm that you can hardly feel the boat rock.

Great location - close to the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International - free shuttle pick up and drop off to / from the airport. Close to strip malls and lots of eating options. Close to public transport, eg the Sun Trolley HOHO for $2-3 all day pass. Close to the cruise terminal for paid shuttle or taxi service. Re the hotel itself - large king size room, very clean, complimentary hot breakfast. Great customer service from the front desk
