Miami: Pre- or Post-Cruise Mini-Break
If you cruise regularly, it's not surprising if you think of Miami mainly as the departure point for your vacation. But, even before the end of the 19th century, when passenger steamships all still had masts, Miami already was becoming a major vacation destination in its own right.

With more than a century of existence as a favorite vacation destination, Miami has developed an incredible range of tourist assets and activities -- so even if you plan to fly there primarily to board your ship, it truly behooves you to consider extending your stay three days before or after your cruise to enjoy Miami and its South Florida surroundings.

Whether you are an active romantic, mellowed senior or parent sharing a vacation with your children, Miami has something for everyone.
