Most ships leave from Fort Lauderdale and Miami is the closest airport there are some that leave from Puerto Rico and Barbados but not checked the scheule to see if these will be used this year. Most times we go we spend a night in the Sheraton Hotel at Fort Lauderdale and join the ship the following day and from the hotel to the port is only about 20 mins.

Assuming you embark in Fort Lauderdale your best bet is to fly to Miami direct from Heathrow. British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, American Airlines and Continental Airlines all fly this route direct.. It takes about nine hours to get there and eight hours to get back.

From Leeds I would fly Continental from Manchester to Newark, change planes for Miami or Fort Lauderdale or indeed most Florida resorts. The changeover being quicker than the 4 hour drive to Heathrow. Direct flights are great if live on the doorstep of Heathrow or Gatwick.

Miami or Fort Lauderdale. San Juan is a few yards to the ship from the nearest hotel - but a more tortuous air trip. While not US -avoid departures from Colon in Panama like the plague. New York is good. Sheraton in Fort Lauderdale is good as is Intercontinental / Crowne Plaza.

We always stop a few nights at The Atlantic in F.L. It's a wonderful hotel with fabulous service. We got upgraded to the penthouse last November. Now that is some hotel suite. Decide which cruise line, then pick a cruise or ship and see where you sail from. We always fly Virgin Manchester to Orlando, stay a couple of nights downtown to relax and then drive to our destination. Port Canaveral is 1hr, F.L. 3 and a half- 4 hrs, Tampa 2-2and a half hours driving time from Orlando.

From manchester you can fly direct to miami with Thompson,or do what we did & flew virgin to orlando then american airlines to miami. 9hrs to orlando,1/2hr to miami,but leave plenty of time between the two. South beach was great,can reccommend the Park Central Hotel on South beach. Some cruises go from Miami some from fort lauderdale,which cruiseline are you planning to use? If I were you I would speak to a specialist cruise agent who will sort everything out for you. Ring the number above. If you hate flying that much why dont you cruise the med? you can fly from Leeds to barcelona in 2hours & the ports a 20 minite taxi ride. The weather 'll probably be better in the med in July. good luck xx.
