The Serenity arrived in Miami in the pre-dawn hours – so I was able to get some very nice shots of the port.
After another nice breakfast in a non-crowded Lido Café, we walked off the ship and breezed through immigration.
We had intended to catch a cab but there were several shuttles parked across the street advertising shared rides to MIA. The shuttles, which didn’t have any markings, were supposed to be non-stop (ours wasn’t – it dropped a guy off at his rental car company). The fare, as I recall, was $10 a person. The van did drop us at the American Terminal. This time we did not check in outside (they are looking for a tip) but went in to the terminal to check in.
Our flight, AA242 departed on time at 12:13 PM (thereabouts) and soon we were home.
A very different kind of cruise – little work, much time on the verandah and deck, and wonderful kosher (and other) food.
