We flew in the night before and stayed at the Holiday Inn Cruise and Convention Centre. The hotel was very nice - modern and clean.
We walked across the street and had supper at BIMINI BOATYARD BAR. We love seafood and this place had great seafood. We were able to sit outside looking out on a little marina. The service was a little slow but it was busy.
We opted to take a cab to the cruise terminal instead of the shuttle. The cab driver screwed up and took us to the wrong ship but we stilled only paid him $16.00 for the fare.
