There is a Left Luggage Section at Miami Airport but I have never used it so cannot say if it is ok or not. You say shop or tour are possibilities so why not rent a car at Fort Lauderdale and drop it off at the airport in Miami when you are done. This will give you so much more oportunities and solve the luggage problem at the same time. .... Neil p.s. If you have a Sat-Nav with the USA on it take it or hire one with the car they are so useful there.

I have used left luggage at MIA twice now and found it very reasonable and secure. Get off the ship early and take a cab staright to the airport. Get the luggage put away and then you have a few options, the closest is a $25 - $30 cab to Dolphon Mall or try catching the shuttle bus that stops outside the main departures pick up drop off just outside of the covered bit and central. The times and prices are online if you search. This is a good mall if you are into shopping. We have also gone one better taking the everglades excursion that drops you at MIA about 11.30 then left luggage and a cab to Dolphon mall for a couple of hours where the food court offers a good choice for some late lunch and a shop. By the way we love the freedom of the seas,.

We had a disaster trying to leave luggage at Miami, we queued for nearly an hour and before we got to the hatch the room was full and they closed storage. We now always book a room at the onsite hotel, we can store the bags in our room and have a lay down before the flight, there is a great restaurant in the hotel which looks over the airport. It is great to nip downstairs, check in the bags and then go back to the room for an hour or so. Sorfry cant remember the name of the hotel but sure you will find it on line. If not have a limo meet you from the ship and take you sitseeing for the day and drop you at the airport.

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...

The Amazing Royal Princess ...

I was recently lucky enough to spend 3 nights on board the beautiful Royal Princess sailing from Southampton to Dublin, and being a over of the recent hit cruise programme ‘The Cruise ‘ I had an idea on what to expect but actually sailing onboard her was a million times better!Once you board the main centre point of the ship is the piazza, which constantly has a buzz surrounding it, from line dancing, speed painting, fruit carving plus more during the day you also have various bar...
