Where I stayed
I spent last night at a Cambria Suites in Dania Beach. Not only is it a reasonable place to overnight, they offer 14 days of free parking plus limo service to the Ft Lauderdale Seaport and the Airport...both pick-up and drop-off. So I figure my 28 days parking here is free-gratis if I spend a night both outbound and upon return. And the convenience is priceless after the 5 hour drive from Satsuma on I-95. This is my first time to stay here as it is practically new. Make a note if you need lodging in this area in conjunction with a cruise or flight. The facility is first class, as is the management. I should also mention that they see no problem transporting the bicycle box, something that has been bothering me. So as the old saying goes, "Worry is the interest you pay on problems before they occur."
Apparently I need not have paid any interest on this little concern. They have a large van, and a bus when needed, to make these runs. I will upload a few pictures of these digs as they show it much better than I can describe it.
I should also mention that the Cruise Port charges $336.00 for 28 days of parking, while two nights at the Cambria (with parking and limo service thrown in) totals only $198.00. Go figure. Whoops, almost forgot to mention. Cambria has a great gym, pool and hot tub that made the stay most pleasant.
