Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
We arrived in the city the night before our cruise to ensure we had a smooth morning. We stayed at the Days Inn and while I admit I was not too thrilled from the outside, honestly, it was fine for what it was. Our rooms and bathroom were clean and it served its purpose. I probably wouldn't go there again though. 2 stars.

We enjoyed dinner at 15th Street Fisheries which is near the port. This lovely restaurant has an upper level for fine dining and a lower level for a more casual experience. We dined upstairs and it was very quiet and nice. Great food and service.

The Port Everglades itself is a comfortable place to wait to board the ship. See my embarkation/disembarkation section of the main review for more details.

This brand-new port is set up nicely to receive such a large group of people. My only criticism is that it seemed a bit chaotic when we were getting ready to board our bus for the excursion. We were set back about a half hour and then our bus trip took twice as long as expected. It takes about 40 minutes to get to Montego Bay from Falmouth, not twenty. The woman at the port who was helping organize us seemed a bit out of sorts. We went on an excursion called "Dreamer Catamaran" (Montego Bay, Jamaica) which we all enjoyed. The crew was fun - we snorkeled, we saw underwater life like fish and coral, we danced, and we drank Jamaica's Red Stripe beer. Overall a fun excursion. Afterwards, we shopped in the market and purchased bottles of rum, coffee, wooden carvings, small trinkets, and jerk seasonings. We also tried some jerk chicken at a booth in the square.
