After packing once again, we headed down to the port of Miami (apparently the biggest port in America…interesting fact!). On our way back from Miami beach Friday we managed to book a taxi to take us there with the same company. Although the port of Miami is around a 10 minute drive away the taxi driver charged us 40 dollars, however the other taxi that we booked to take our luggage only cost 15…rip off!
We boarded the cruise ship with ease, I got to skip most of the queues…the benefits of being disabled! Our luggage was took by the porters which included my manual wheelchair, but it soon made its way up to our cabins.
As our cabins were not ready until 1430 we headed to the welcome buffet and was surprising how much food they have on offer!
My cabin seemed to be massive (I have posted it on Twitter) compared to some of the other cabins which made for a luxury experience, oh and I forgot the balcony for which I am sitting on right now. It has a fairly big wet room complete with a shower seat that you can almost fit on, but it good compared to some in the UK!
We walked up onto the 16th floor to watch the ship depart from Miami which was spectacular as the sun went down, oh and we saw lightning too! When I booked the cruise, I didn’t quite realise how posh the evening meal would be. I was a bit taken back by it but sure that I’ll get used to it eventually.
Today we are at sea all day so the plan is to just relax and maybe go swimming later ready for Jamaica tomorrow. Finally, to confuse us a little more we are now 6 hours behind the UK until Friday when we arrive in the Bahamas
