Arrive a day early and take a narrated water cruise of the "Venice of America" and see the mansions and yachts from the water.

Took Uber to Sawgrass Mills mall. Spent 8 hours there and still didn't see it all. Huge mall with great shopping, great restaurants, movie theater.

We've been to Ft. Lauderdale dozens of times. Beautiful place to hang out in the sun. We stayed downtown Miami for a couple of nights before the cruise and that was a blast too. It was different (which we wanted) but nice. (I prefer Ft. Lauderdale I think though). One thing to remember... If you're driving, allow at least an extra half hour for traffic right before you get to the ship. It's just very congested. DO NOT TAKE A CAB there. It'll break you. We used Uber from downtown Miami and it wasn't bad at all.

Easy to get in and out of. If you are flying use the Ft. Lauderdale airport instead of Miami if you can... It is less than a mile from the port.

We arrived the day before and stayed one night at the Hilton Embassy Suites Hotel and it was a pleasure. We had a FREE Cocktail Hour that night and a FREE Breakfast the next morning and the accommodations were fabulous. There were four of and more than enough room with the suite which included two queen beds and a sofa bed and sitting are in second room. Fabulous views as well. Will definitely stay there again when booking cruises which sail from this port. Best Experience ever in this area.
