Background information - First time cruisers. There were 5 of us.
Hotel information (if any) - Holiday Inn, Port of Miami. Bar doesn't stay open very late and doesn't open early. So, if you are looking for bloody Mary's or mimosas for breakfast you need to go across the street to Bayside.
Ship information - Carnival Victory
Great view from balcony! Can be a little noisy at night as I think the Punchliner Comedy Club was below us? Not sure.
Wonderful! Truly wish "I Could Stay Here Forever"
Try out Bayside Marketplace. Live music, good drinks, view is excellent. Thriller! Speedboat Tour is well worth it.
Okay port. Great drinks at public beach. Wear appropriate shoes for walking the streets. Traffic is very dangerous (always look at least 2-3 times before crossing). Don't let anyone talk you into taking cab ride from just inside the gate. Keep moving!
