    Some people do Fort Lauderdale, and I think some people congregate around the Riptide in Hollywood.

    But most of us will be in Miami Beach. The Clevelander will be wall-to-wall metalheads, and drinking on the beach is permitted (but don't be a jackass about it).

    Can't stand the Clevelander myself. Had terrible experience with the service, and I prefer to be able to breathe without sticking my nose into someone else. I'll be doing some low key prep for the cruise, either on Hollywood Beach or at a hotel near the port.

    Hollywood Beach (staying at Riptide) for me. I won't be able to get into town until late Wednesday afternoon so going down to South Beach would not be worth it for me. Plus, I like to enjoy the calm before the storm hanging out at Riptide's Tiki Bar then later going down the Hollywood Brewing Company. Then it is quick/cheap Uber ride to the port the next morning.

    We're staying at a little hotel near South Beach, it's called Fashion Boutique Hotel and looks nice. It's about half a mile from the Clevelander.

    While we are talking about pre-cruise arrangements, would you care to give the newbie a bit of an insight?
    So, I know about the South Beach Party, I've read a bit here in the forum, but still I just can't get enough information (must be the excitement).

    We are going on a road trip across the southern states and will be in Miami on the 29th, so two days before the cruise. When are you all arriving? When is the party?

    Also on a side note: Any tips for a nice meal down in Miami? :lol:

    I haven't been to Miami since 2012 but I enjoyed my time there more than any cruises out of Fort Lauderdale, so I'm going back there for 2019. Booked into the SoBe hostel on South Beach from 27th - 31st.

    I'll be in Hollywood Beach. I prefer the more relaxed atmosphere, and there are still plenty of metalheads there to meet. Not exactly sure of my hotel yet, but I'll be close enough to Riptide.

    I most likely won't be doing any of the pre cruise stuff this time around. Plans are still liquid, but currently will be in Orlando right up until the day before so we can do family stuff like Universal Studios, Disney, etc with my son.

    The main beach party is at the Clevelander the day before we sail but if you go there any night in the lead up to the cruise there will be a heap of people there. Full details here in the Facebook Event Page:

    https://www.facebook.com/events/197420697571088/

    As far as food, Nicko McBrain's Rock n Roll Ribs is a must. A bit of a drive north of Miami but it sounds like you'll have a car:

    http://www.rocknrollribs.org/

    Around South Beach itself, I highly recommend 11th Street Diner. Good honest American fair, and I met some fantastic cruisers when I ate there this year:

    Haha, OP: "Who is in Fort Lauderdale this year?"
    Thread: "Let's talk about Miami stuff" :P

    Speaking of being off-topic, Dallas, you're bringing your kid on the cruise this year?

    I wasn't even planning on doing 70K this year due to buying a house a few months ago....but when booking opened up I caved pretty quickly....can't imagine missing out on of these yet.

    That being said I am trying to do things a little bit cheaper this year. Which means I will be skipping out on the festivities at the Clevelander (spent three nights there pre-cruise last year and ended spending more than I did onbroad! :whisky: )

    I'm just going to stay one night in Hollywood Beach before the cruise. Booked a room at the Hollywood Beach Suites Hotel. Rooms are cheap and t's attached to an awesome taco joint. It's also really close to Hollywood Brewery and isn't too long of a walk up the broadwalk to get to Riptide.

    ^Beware of that Hollywood Beach Suites place. They like to charge $50 "deposit" to your credit card which they claim will be released back to you upon check out, but that wasn't the case for me. They refused cash so once you're long gone and realise you haven't been refunded they can ignore your e-mails and it makes things difficult to get it back. Only hostel/hotel I've ever stayed at that doesn't accept cash. Pretty dodgey.

    I never got the refund.

    My room in Hollywood Beach Suites last year was pretty unacceptable. I won't get into details because it was that bad.

    Love the Taco Bar, but I won't stay at the Hostel again. I'll be taking at least one trip to that place, regardless of where I wind up staying in FLL.

    Riptide Tue and Wed. I've been to the BIG pre-parties, it's fun, but I actually get enough partying on the boat, and I enjoy the smaller venues more. I do Fort Lauderdale post cruise for 1 day Monday at Ramada Airport/Cruise Port, free shuttle to/from port and the airport, free breakfast, tiki bar, always enough people there to hang out with, pre and post cruise also, but only good if you aren't going anywhere and just want a place to camp out.

    If you're planning on attending the BIG pre-parties, I'd advise traveling Tuesday. I've done the Wednesday all-day travel and arrive at the party at 7:00 PM, too bushed to really enjoy it.

    Now you've got me worried :shock: . You've gotta give some more detail lol.

    I've stayed there a couple of times but last time was over two years ago. I've heard of the credit card horror stories too but was lucky enough both times I stayed and never had an issue with it. Even if I get screwed out of the 50 dollar deposit it'll still end up being cheaper than a room at the riptide.

    Plans are still liquid, but currently will be in Orlando right up until the day before so we can do family stuff like Universal Studios, Disney, etc with my son.
    We are currently planing Disney after the cruise as our return flight leaves from Orlando on the 7th.

    As far as food, Nicko McBrain's Rock n Roll Ribs is a must. A bit of a drive north of Miami but it sounds like you'll have a car:
    http://www.rocknrollribs.org/
    You are correct with both good sir! That does sound like a most. We will definitely make the drive up there.

    Thanks for all the info! Really appreciate it.

    Ever since the switch to the larger ship it's been harder for us to hit up the pre-cruise parties without weekends bookending the cruise. We usually stay in Ft Lauderdale (unless Miami ends up much less expensive) and just grab some food and make it a low-key night. Enough time to party on the ship. That will probably be the plan this year. Check into the hotel, get some cuban food and call it a night. Losing the whole day to travel sucks.

    I'm always around, but at work. This year I might just take the extra day before cruise so I can wander over and join all these parties that always happen.

    My room in Hollywood Beach Suites last year was pretty unacceptable. I won't get into details because it was that bad.

    Love the Taco Bar, but I won't stay at the Hostel again. I'll be taking at least one trip to that place, regardless of where I wind up staying in FLL.
    I'm currious since I just booked that hotel as well.

    I found the bathroom in my room to be quite disgusting. I will most likely be booking at St Maurice Inn again, once I figure out flight dates (leaving from my city results in me often needing to take an extra day in travel because suck).

    I have stayed at Hollywood Beach Side Boutique for all but one FLL cruise. I like it. Clean small apartment rooms. Close to everything. A bit more money, but if the toilet doesn't work or its full of roaches or something--worth it.

    I attended the Miami Beach pre-party this year and it was nothing short of awesome. Miami Beach IS the place to party.

    Fortunately I will stay at my friend's new house in Miami and probably Uber to/from the Clevelander

    That's us too. Even if we leave early in the AM, we have to connect through somewhere (usually Atlanta) and never get into Ft. Lauderdale until 6 or 7pm. Usually just want to grab dinner and sleep at that point.

    I'm very content to just let the party start on the boat the following day.

    The real threat is BED BUGS. Take some of these nasty critters home and you'll be in true dread. I always enter the room, put my suit case in the bath tub, then I go around with a flash light checking the head boards, mattress pads, etc. I've known people that got these babies in their house and it took over a year to get rid of them and everything they owned they had to burn.

    ^Beware of that Hollywood Beach Suites place. They like to charge $50 "deposit" to your credit card which they claim will be released back to you upon check out, but that wasn't the case for me. They refused cash so once you're long gone and realise you haven't been refunded they can ignore your e-mails and it makes things difficult to get it back. Only hostel/hotel I've ever stayed at that doesn't accept cash. Pretty dodgey.

    I never got the refund.
    I hate that! I mean, imagine if all businesses did that?

    *walks into department store*

    *security approaches* "Excuse me sir, we need to take $50 off you on the off chance that you break something in store. But do not worry - we will probably give the money back to you, eventually"

    I had a similar thing last week. Went interstate for work, work paid for the hotel. But they still put a $75 'hold' on my credit card, that eventually got returned to me a week later.

    So way off topic, but got a bit of a scare when renting a car on Iceland this summer, when they charged $3,500 deposit before picking it up.
    You'd get it back "no later than 2 weeks after returning the car, when we could check there were no damages".

    Did get it back some 2 days after we were done, but it was quite the high deposit for a car rental.
    MY GOD that is ridiculous!!! A lot of people wouldn't have the ability to even cover that :|

    My deposit was about 2000 euros in Iceland. They took it off the same day I returned the car though. Unlike in Denmark in July, where Hertz had the deposit (about 600 euros) blocked on my card for well over a month. Called them twice and the only response I got was that it will clear in a week or two after returning the car (even if it was already well over that). Had to contact my bank to finally get it removed.

    I kinda get the high deposit in Iceland. You're not allowed to drive on gravel roads (unless you pay extra and take a 4x4), but all the cars in the rental return lot looked like they had been dragged through gravel roads on their sides and roofs.

    I'm staying in an airbnb in the Rio Vista Area, right next to the Port basically, just the night of the 30th.

    But I'd be down to meet up with people who are nearby ish, drinks and food or something :)

    Not sure why I didn't think of that! airbnb makes sense I'll have to do that in 2020!. Maybe get a few of us and cab it to Rocknroll ribs and maybe meet Nicko. Apparently I just missed him the last time I was there.

    Since you mentioned 2020, the Super Bowl in 2020 is being hosted in Miami. We won't know what our dates are until Andy announces Sunday night. I'm hoping UMC can schedule a different week other than Super Bowl weekend, cause it's gonna be a mess for us getting rooms, etc that week.
