Check out the website stay123.com. They will have hotels near the cruise port that are reasonably priced and most have a shuttle that will take you back and forth to the cruise port. Just booked a 1 night stay with 8 days of free parking in Ft Lauderdale for our cruise in Nov for $111 after taxes.

To save on costs, it's really better to stay in Miami, and beach it over on Miami Beach..Haulover Beach is close, but be prepared for some nudity.

If you decide to stay in Lauderdale, the Bahia Mar is right across the street from the beach, with a walkover to it, over the street. A shuttle, will cost you $15.00 pp to get you to Miami.

We have the Lago Mar Hotel booked for our pre cruise stay in October. It is in FLL by the Harbor inlet and has its own beach front. You can look it up online. We booked it because of its beach location and because it had one bedroom suites since we are traveling with our two teenage boys (15 & 17) and wanted a separate bedroom.

We too are sailing Liberty of Seas (Feb 19, 2011). Hubby just booked our hotel - Days Inn Oceanside on Collins Ave in Miami. Right on the beach for $199+taxes per night.

Plan to head down on Thursday to enjoy 2 days at the beach before sailing.

Keeping our fingers crossed for a warmer February than last year was

Good luck.
