Doubletree Hotel is part of the Hilton Group and there are a number in the Miami / Fort Lauderdale area if this is where you are staying. Nice hotels but I am not fond of their food options but that is me not the problem with the hotel.

Looks like you will be overnighting in Newark NJ. The normal carriers used for Newark are BA and Virgin but as this is the start of the busy time I would suggest, as you have a booking, you ask RCI the name and the "Locator Number" or Reference Number you will have for your flight and then go to the actual airline web site and check it out there. I would also recommend that you look at a site called trip advisor ( all one word) as they are the best to find reliable and up to date hotel information from past customers who have stayed at that hotel. The port Terminal at Port Liberty is not the finest in the world and I am sure that if you have a fly and cruise deal that you will get transfers to the ship which is much better than a diy try.. Hope that helps. ..... Neil.

Next time I think I will get off and explore, weather permitting. Here is what I missed and what you could do when visiting this lovely French Town.A Taste Of Normandy Unlike the rest of France Normandy is blanketed in apple orchards instead of vineyards.

There is a wealth of affordable voyages available if you know where to look. Over-capacity in cruising hot-s...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
