Hire a car for the day, go shopping and have a leisuerly lunch and then drop the car off at the airport. I can provide a list of car hire places close to the port if you wish.

I also would suggest hiring a car you can take the complimentary bus which will take you to two or three car hire companies. Go shopping at the Aventura Mall its enormous but keep a track of the time. When ready just drive to the airport (it would have cost you nearly $50 anyway by taxi). When booking your car ask for a airport drop off its simple.

I'm with two of the others, I would rent a car for the day and go to Sawgrass Mills Shopping Mall or for an Airboat ride in the Everglades or walk around the Las Olas district in FL or a ride down to the Art Deco region of Miami. Arrange it so that you can drop your car off at the rental place at Miami Airport. If you have a Sat-Nav that you can use in the States take it because it makes life so much easier. Failing that, take the transfer or a cab to the Airport then either check your luggage in or leave it at the Left Luggage station in the airport then go round to one of the hotels nearby like the Sofitel and spend the day around the pool there. One more thing for £20 each you can buy a place in an executive lounge at the airport, there is one on the outside of the Concourse F and one through security. There you can relax in comfortable chairs, have a small snack and drink free until your flight is boarding. You can spend up to 3 hours in there, and more if your flight is delayed. Just make sure that if you choose the one inside security that you are in the right concourse for your flight. .... Neil.

I would get on a bus or hire a cab and go to South Beach in Miami for a lovely walk along the seafront. There are loads of Art Deco buildings, shops, restaurants and bars. It's a beautiful wide stretch of white sand beach with turquoise water, if you just want to relax in the sand. And then there's just people watching as well.

We fancy doing the Everglades,the ship's pre booking excursions for the last day is showing closed,nor sure if that means all excursions are gone or you can only book the last day when on the ship,so if all gone,are there places off the ship where you could book the eveglades?

If the excursion is showing'closed', then yes maybe they dont release the excursions at miami until the last evening aboard your cruise ship. The everglades passed away a couple of hours- not long enough really- we still sat in the airport for about 6 hours, but hey! it was still agreat experience and i also highly recommend the Freedom of the Seas ship if you ever decide to cruise aboard a mega liner.

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...

Small ships are wanted!!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

P&O have announced that their small ship Adonia is to return to their 2017/2018 season. The ship was much loved by the P&O faithful and when she left the fleet to help with humanitarian work overseas there was a big hole to fill as many of the P&O fleet are larger ships and P&O were losing some of their passengers to cruise & Maritime and Fred Olsen.From June 2017 she will start Mediterranean, round Britain and even an Iceland sailing. The smaller more interesting ports w...
