Sail Date: Apr 2008
Cabin: Balcony

My Fiance and I, along with 22 guests, met in South Beach the night before departure. Everyone came together to celebrate our wedding, which was to take place on Megan's Bay, in St. Thomas. We chose an Eastern Caribbean Cruise, with ports in San Juan, St. Thomas and St. Martin.

Everyone stayed at various hotels in South Beach. We, along with four couples, stayed at Essex House. It was a nice hotel, conveniently located to numerous activities in South Beach. Many couples had great difficulty with air travel. We highly suggest traveling to the departure city the night prior to cruise.

We left for the Port of Miami at approximately 11:00 am. We all took taxis to the port, which cost approximately $20 per taxi. The taxi dropped us off at the terminal, and we dropped of our bags. We then headed inside the terminal to begin the embarkation process.
