Additional details

Sail Date: Mar 2016

Salty Dawgs know to expect Spring Break hounds aboard from mid-March to mid-April. The math is predictable: Spring Breakers plus frequent Happy Hours equals? On this cruise the Spring Break pack generally stayed around the main pool convenient to the bar, Trident Grill and the buffet.

Itinerary: Emerald Princess - March 10~14, 2016: Ft. Lauderdale-at Sea-Grand Cayman Island-at Sea-Ft. Lauderdale

Parking at the terminal is $15 a day. Savvy dawgs know to search for cheaper alternatives offered at some hotels or long term parking lots with shuttles to the ship. Something Princess knew but did not tell guests: the ship would depart from terminal 2 and return and berth at terminal 19. Princess did provide a bus shuttle back to terminal 2, but it looked like it would be a slow process.
