    You'll be spending alot of time at the aiport if you're taking a cruise. Here's some helpful tips.

    1) wireless is free at the airport so bring a laptop or web-enabled phone to pass the time.

    2) If you are checking in more than 3 hours early to the airport check if your airlines will take bags early. Southwest did allow early check in at their bags-to-go location at baggage claim so we were free to get outside of the aiport instead of wait with our luggage.

    3) bus and tri-rail service are available for pickup outside of the baggage claim if you have a lot of time to kill and are looking to save $.
