Allure of the Seas Feb 2016 - Post Cruise

Feb 28, 2016
Ft Lauderdale, FL

As per usual, we dilly-dallied getting off the boat.  And we were among the last to be called anyway, since we weren't leaving FL till the next day.

Went for breakfast and then got off the boat around 10am.  Got a porter in the terminal (we will be doing that from now on!) who was able to by-pass the long carry off line to go through customs.  We were in a cab in about 30 mins!

Got to the hotel - Hyatt Regency Pier 66.  Of course our room wasn't ready, but we packed our suits in our carry on bag and just checked our suitcases.  Then headed out to the pool area.  Was a gorgeous pool and grounds and we were quite happy.  Sat at the pool, went for a swim and checked emails and texts and caught up with the rest of the world.

Room was ready about 4pm (they sent me a text - I love that!) and we decided to go get settled there.  The rooms were a bit old - I think we were in the older part of the hotel.  The door to the patio was tough to open, the track seemed like it needed some WD40! 

After relaxing in the room for a bit, we showered and napped and then went to walk around the marina.  There are some serious yachts around there - wow!! We ran into a nice gentleman who was telling us about what famous people owned which ones.  (He has made it a bit of a hobby he said)  We ended up at an outdoor bar/restaurant called The Pelican, which had cool views of the 17th street bridge, the intercoastal and all of the amazing boats in the marina.

We walked off dinner some more around the marina and headed back to the room to relax.  Had to be up and out by 8 as we had a 10am flight home :(
