As you embark on the most EXCITING journey at sea, the Royal Caribbean Cruise Junkies have some hotel recommendations, just for you!

Below is a list of hotels we previously stated at the day before our sailing!  We stay at many hotels and will give feedback as to which is our best, okay and not so best hotels!  


Based on our “Cruising Departure Ports!” 
Hotels are listed from BEST to not so best!

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

  • Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six

Currently Closed for Renovations!

Prior to the hotel closing for construction, this was our go to hotel and stayed here often!  Highly Recommend!!

  • Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise

This hotel was a leading contender to the Hyatt Regency but is in need a massive repairs!  The rooms are a bit dated for the price but a great location!  Recommend!

  • Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach

The scenery absolutely stunning! The price was on the higher side for one bight, we booked the 2 Double Oceanfront Juliette Balcony!  But the over room rates are reasonable but I cannot recommend the other rooms as we haven’t stayed in them.  Recommend!

  • Fairfield Inn Suites 

We stayed here once as a hotel recommendation and we just thought it was okay. Not sure we’ll stay here again!

Miami, Florida

  • Intercontinental Miami

This hotel is stunning and is by far one of our favorite hotels to stay at.  We’ve stayed here multiple times and is 7-minutes walking distance to Bayside Marketplace!  Highly Recommend!

Check out our YouTube video!

  • Kimpton Epic Miami

This is another hotel we love to stay at!  It’s on the pricy side but we stayed here multiple times. This hotel is a little further, 13-minutes walking distance from Bayside Marketplace!  

Highly Recommend!

  • Holiday Inn Port of Miami-Downtown

We use to stay here often but the rooms are very dated! It’s right across the street from Bayside, 3-minutes walking distance! We haven’t stayed here in years and probably wont stay again! 

Port Canaveral, Florida

  • Country Inn & Suites by Raddison

We will never stay here again! We had a horrible experience where the front desk  people mixed up our rooms and upon our return from the parks, someone was in our room! Management contacted us and apologize but due to the fact of how we’ were treated, we will NEVER stay here again!
