    You're right. I forgot the lime. Question: Is there Coke/Pepsi Lime on the US?

    I've seen it often enough, so I'm pretty damn sure you can easily find Coke w/Lime around here in just about any store.

    Oh boy, don't even get me started. LOL

    Disneyland (Anaheim,CA)- oversaw by Walt Disney himself, built in the 50's, jammed packed with attractions in a small area. They built a 2nd park called California Adventure, so The Disneyland Resort consists of 2 parks and a few hotels.

    Walt Disney World - Lake Buena Vista, FL- has 4 theme parks, lots more hotels, 2 water parks and it insanely HUGE compared to Disneyland. Walt Disney World's "Magic Kingdom" park is the Florida version of the "Disneyland" park, larger in size but with less attractions and less "frills" since Walt died before the park opened and wasn't able to assert his signature touch. The other main parks are: EPCOT, Disney Hollywood Studios (formerly MGM Studios) & Animal Kingdom.

    I won''t bore you with any further details, but Disneyland is a few day trip, Walt Disney World is a week long trip to see everything. Easy way to remember is "a world is bigger than a land".

    I was thinking in taking the plane to Miami and rightaway take the Cruise, and after that going back home, but this forum has given me ideas. After all, u don't go to Miami every week!
    I want to explore a little bit Miami, like the beach and do some scubadiving and kayaking and all that. But as a student, with not much money, I would like to know how can I enjoy Miami a day before and a day after the Cruise with a basic budget.
    Also, I may be by myself outside the Cruise. Are there any groups that are willing to "adopt" me for a day or two?? =P

    Hey Katia... I'm sure we'll all have pretty much adopted each other by the end of the trip. As for before setting sail, it sounds like many of the people just here on these boards are already making a variety of plans for stuff to do the day or days leading up to the voyage so I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding others to share in whatever interests you.
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    How's the traffic in Miami?

    I live in a city with +100 KMs of jammed streets. Traffic is not a problem to me, but I would also take some vacations from it :D

    The traffic can get pretty out of hand during morning (7-9am) and evening (4:30-7pm) rush hour, but that's really more during the weekdays. Weekend traffic can vary, but you better be on your toes to drive around here, as it can get tricky at times.

    Considering that the population of Dade County (where Miami is located) in 2007 was about 3,078,745, then you can only imagine :lol:

    Everything here is very widespread, so taking a bus would definitely require having bus schedules and routes in hand. Train wise, we have something called Metrorail that will get you around to some parts of town, depending on where you're going. there's also TriRail which services the tri-county area (Dade,Broward and Palm Beach Counties), which unless you can catch a ride with someone else, is how you might get to the venue where the pre-show is planning to be held (in Ft. Lauderdale).

    Honestly I haven't used public transportation in years, so I'm not exactly an expert. And yeah, Taxis can be expensive. You might be better off renting a sub-compact car for a day or two. If they have Smart Cars, then you'd really be set fuel economy-wise

    Coral castle is not really much of a castle at all and would probably be entertaining for about an hour. I went there once years ago on a school field trip and have never been back since. If you don't have a rental car, it would probably take quite awhile to get there using public transport as it's quite a bit south of Miami.

    Day before cruise is the 2 NFL championship games. If the Miami Dolphins can make it that far & win the AFC game then they,ll qualify for the Superbowl. Which will mean the town will party bigtime. Not a Miami fan & doubt whether it will happen, but be great if it does!! :cheers:

    I was just watching Discovery Channel "Dirty Jobs", and in this episode the guy was chasing chickens in Miami. They call it the "Chicken Busters". Is this something to do while in Miami?? :lol:

    Just kidding =P But, is it true you have THAT many chickens around??

    I know that there are people here and there with Chickens, but I've never of these so called Chicken Busters. Sounds like an exageration to me :lol:

    And as for the zoo, well, you cannot go on any safari's there, but you can walk around and look at the animals. Maybe you'll get lucky and they'll be awake. The only safari to be had around here is Lion Country Safari, which is a few hours north, and I have never in my life been to it. You'll have to read up on that and see if it sounds like the thing to do

    This is a simple touristic question I submit you.
    - What can I do in Miami (or Florida) before or after the cruise?

    I heard of Key West being great to visit, as for Busch Gardens or Disney.

    Any other ideas or recomendations?

    Thanks!

    Zeh


    I was in the Navy back in 88-92, got stationed for 3 years in Key West. It would be a great place to visit if you have the time. Be warned, the drive down there is long and a bit sketchy. US 1 down to Key West is 2 lane most of the way, lots of crashes on that stretch of Highway. However, if you do go, Duval Street is wall to wall bars (known as the Duval Crawl, I did it more times than I can count, or remember for that matter). At the far end there are a couple popular bars, Rick's and Durty Harry's (Google search shows them to both still be in business) Rick's was always and probably still is a dance club, but Durty's was a killer Rock bar, small stinky and packed with metal heads and rockers every weekend. They pulled in great bands (mostly cover but some original) from all over the country. I had killer times there and would go back in a heartbeat. In any case, it's worht the trip down, but if you go, hop a plane and rent a car (or moped) in Key West and skip the drive down. http://www.ricksanddurtyharrys.com/?page_id=22

    One thing I would advise to people who have never been to Miami but who are planning to check things out all around the city before or after the cruise... leave yourself plenty of time to get wherever it is you are going! Traffic can be a friggin' nightmare depending on time of day and which direction you are headed. I am sure it has been said elsewhere, but things are pretty spread apart and not easily accessed with public transportation or cabs ($$$$).

    I am sure there are plenty of other cities with worse traffic, but having lived in Miami off and on for 11 years and still traveling there twice a week for work, I know how maddening it could be!

    And one suggestion for places to check out there is Vicaya Museum and Gardens (http://www.vizcayamuseum.org). Just a cool mansion and gardens to wander around and a portion of the first Ace Ventura was filmed there! "Excuse me sir, but do you have a mint? Perhaps some Binaca?"
