    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

After arrival at Fort Lauderdale it was time to find our prepaid shuttle, this ended up being a pain as the person at the shuttle sent us to the wrong location. Geoff had to phone the shuttle company and instantly got a text message saying shuttle would be 20 minutes, to cut a long story short we waited nearly 2 hours as our hotel was ...

However, once we got to the terminal and got our luggage off the shuttle and gave it to the ship's handlers, there was no line and we more or less walked our way on to the ship, with brief stops to get our passports scanned, be issued room keys and have the ...
