Jazz Cruises Recommends Arriving in Miami the Day BEFORE Embarkation.
Jazz Cruises highly recommends that guests arrive the day before embarkation in order to alleviate stress from any potential travel delays or issues. Though many of our guests stay that night in the Miami area with friends and family, most secure hotel accommodations.
Selecting a Hotel
With so many different options of hotel properties in the Greater Miami area to choose from, if our guests act soon, they should have opportunities to select a hotel in whatever location or price range they desire. For those unfamiliar with the hotels in the area, Jazz Cruises has compiled a list of potential hotels along with a direct link to each reservation procedure. Going to the reservation link is the only way to determine both price and availability for each hotel. Please contact the hotel regarding airport/cruise port Shuttle Service.
Hotel Rooms at the Hilton Miami Airport Blue Lagoon
A very limited number of hotel rooms are available under the Jazz Cruises block at the Hilton Miami Airport Blue Lagoon. The reservation link is included in the list of potential hotels. Please note that the Jazz Cruises block may or may not be the best offer for a hotel room at the Hilton Miami Airport Blue Lagoon and the list of potential hotels includes hotels that are more highly rated and some that are more cost effective.
Ground Transportation to the Pier on Embarkation Day
Regardless of where you stay the night before embarkation, you may elect to purchase Jazz Cruises’ exclusive coach transportation to the pier on Embarkation Day. The coaches will leave from the Hilton Miami Airport Blue Lagoon at designated times with the goal of having the guests arrive at the pier no later than 1:00pm.
Your luggage will be loaded onto the motor coach by our team and you will be assisted at the pier by the cruise line porters. No tips or lifting necessary! Coach transportation from the Hilton Miami Airport Blue Lagoon to the pier costs $30/person. Ground Transportation is limited and on a first come, first served basis. Guests may register for the Pier Transfer now by completing the Transportation Form.
You will receive an email confirmation with further instructions regarding this transfer approximately 15 days prior to the cruise. The fee will be added to your account under your reservation.
Please note: Jazz Cruises’ ground transportation is offered on embarkation day only. If you would like to purchase ground transportation for your disembarkation day from the port to the airport, Celebrity Cruises offers shuttle services that you may purchase once reservation numbers are distributed in the coming months.
We Look Forward to Sailing with You!
