Miami Beach: You can’t visit Miami without visiting sandy beaches and soaking up some rays. There’s just something about listening to the waves and letting the sand get in-between your toes to help you forget your worries and relax.

Visit the Art Deco District: The Art Deco District here in Miami is a sight to behold, with its bright colors and 1930’s nostalgia. It’s a place to let your imagination run free.

The Vizcaya Museum: If you’re a fan of history, this is the place to visit. Walk through the rooms of the Renaissance-style vista filled with art from the 15th and 16th centuries. Set your eyes on the breath-taking courtyard and take in the beauty of it.

  1. I don’t know who this “Guest Post” author is, but my eternal gratitude for taking the time to share this amazing information with the rest of us! Our family has been cruising for over 1.5 decades. As such, we’ve become quite savvy at not just saving money on cruises, but knowing where to find bargains and the BEST escursions, not to mention which ports are the most satisfying to us, our extended family and friends who often join us on these amazing ships. But one thing to date I have not found when sailing out of Miami is where to stay one night prior to my cruise and get FREE parking for upto 14 nights!!! Knowing how close the Intercontinental Hotel is to the port, and all the freebies they offer their cruising guests shall now move PortMiami to the front of the line when sailing from Florida for 5 or more nights.

    THANK YOU FELLOW CRUISER, WHOEVER YOU ARE!
