Leaving Orlando for Miami and Liberty of The Seas

On our way to Miami - Liberty of the Seas is waiting for us

Got up early, packed the car and headed for Miami.

We didn't have much traffic but we did see some action on our way.... As we were pulling in at a Wendy's through a gas station there were several police cars pulling in the same way we were, they stopped two cars that were about to drive out.... The policemen pulled their guns and pointed them at the cars... about as much action as we need for the rest of our holiday....

We delivered our rental at Enterprice and took the rental shuttle to Miami Airport, to wait for our shuttle to Miami Port... Later we learned we could have gone directly to the port :-(

The check-in was real efficient, and we were soon in our cabin - our home for the next 7 days.

Next we went on deck 11 to see Miami as we sailed out of the port....

There were three ships leaving Miami at the same time, busy port! And lots of people waiting to waive bye-bye on land. Not to mention all the small boats below. We even had crew members on a container ship doing their little "dirty-dancing" for us.

We spent time looking around inside the ship, and found a nice place to have some cool drinks before dinner! We were seated at the main seating at 6:00 PM together with 5 other Norwegians.
