    New to the Forum and we're landing around 2pm Saturday. Likely food/shopping/exploring Saturday. We'll look for the beach party Sunday and definately checking out Amon Amarth's show Sunday.

    After we're flying straight out. :(. Damned work and responsibilities at home and all.

    We survived the 2013 cruise. We also &*%!ed a mermaid. Well we think we did, details are a bit scetchy.

    Awwwww :D

    Prior to the cruise the wife and I will be arriving into Miami on Friday evening, then will be hitting up the beach parties, maybe the karaoke, and just sampling as many food places as possible :heavydrink:

    When we return, we fly out that evening so will probably go straight to the airport, check in our bags, then hit up Miami International Mall for some last minute shopping.

    NHL team Florida Panthers play friday night in Sunrise/Ft.Lauderdale, NBA stars of Miami Heat take on San Antonio Spurs on sunday (1 pm) at American Airlines Arena in Miami (expensive!!!!).

    I'll be in Tampa from Saturday, will head to Busch Gardens one day before the 25th. Depends on when Steph can and want to go though.


    Have you gone before? I am wondering if it is worth the cost?

    I guess I will stick with my original plan then. I hope they have lines for single people like at Universal.

    Yes! Join us for some Key West Mayhem! I arrive on Wednesday and wanna check out the "girls drink for free" and "sexy bullride competition" at Cowbow Bill's Honkytonk Salon! People might think Sweden is quite the liberal country but we have no free drinking or sexy bullrides here.

    As a first-timer going with a bunch of veterans, I'm pretty much along for the ride.

    Jan. 25 - Arrive in Miami early evening. Beach party? Booze? Metal?
    Jan. 26 - Do shit in day time. Wear as few clothes as possible. Stripper bus to Amon Amarth. I am not one of the strippers.
    Jan. 27-31 - The cruise I've been looking forward to since I first heard about it years ago.
    Feb. 1 - Recover. Drink water.
    Feb. 2 - Fly home in the afternoon.
    Feb. 3 - Go to work and cry a little bit.

    By the way…has anyone ever gone for a day trip to the everglades from Miami? Is that doable this time of year?

    We visited Jungle Island when we were in Miami for the first 70K in 2011 - it was alright, nothing special.

    Miami Zoo is meant to be pretty awesome but haven't visited it previously.

    Shopping! Miami International Mall close to the airport I can recommend as an Aussie visiting Miami. Plenty of good bargain stores we dont have here (Sears, Macy's, JC Penney, Best Buy), and lots of good american junk food to eats :D

    http://www.simon.com/mall/miami-interna ... all/stores

    As wife and I fly back to Oz on the Friday we dock, we will more than likely go straight to the airport and check in, then head to Miami International Mall to shop :)

    I have being to Miami Several times but never went to this mall....

    I have to go to a best buy but I will try to choose another one.

    Those malls near the Miami airport are target by small thiefs(Car burglars).

    Those malls are filled with tourists willing to buy heavily(cars packed with goodies), so if you are with a car extra attention. If not, no worries......

    I've been to the Everglades before the cruise twice. If you have a rental car and the time, definitely do it. There are several different parks in the Everglades. I've been to the one where Gator Boys is filmed, it's in Ft Lauderdale area. It's not bad, but I enjoyed the other one I went to much more. The other one is just outside of Homestead, FL and a bit of a drive south of Miami. I believe it was called Shark Island park or something like that. You can rent a bike and go down a nature path which has gators just sitting around by the road, which was really cool. I got lots of great picks (with a zoom lens) as well. I'd suggest planning a day for it though. Leave early, so you can get there in time to rent a bike. Leave early enough to allow some time to stop by the Coral Castle thing. It's right off the highway that goes back to Miami and is pretty neat.

    you'll have a great time I'm sure!!

    I've come in through Everglades once, camped there too, days before 70k11, cold but doable for sure.
    I'd say go for it, make sure to take one of those river boats too, good fun.


    Thanks dude! I really, really want to get on one of those boats.
