Need pre-cruise hotel/shuttle advice

My husband and I and 2 teenage boys will be cruising out of Miami on Carnival in May. We are flying into Ft Lauderdale. We would like to go deepsea fishing one day and maybe an excursion to the Keys the other day. Can you please advise on hotel location & price? I saw a post about the hiphop weekend. We are not the party type. Just need an affordable hotel for sleeping in a decent location (cab fare, security) around FLL airport, cruise terminal, fishing. Free breakfast, microwave/fridge a bonus. Thanks for any help!

If you trip is during Hip Hop weekend, and you're not the party type, then stay in Fort Lauderadle for sure! I would recommend a hotel on 17th street causeway which is just a few miles from FLL and Bahia Mar marina where there are plenty of fishing boats. When it's time to board the ship, then drive to Miami. Check on the Fort Lauderdale forum for specific hotel ideas. If you have only 1 day an excursion to Islamorada John Pennycamp park would be a great idea, snorkeling!
