I am getting married on the Carnival Liberty in December. I am looking for any reviews from past brides on the weddings on board prior to leaving port of Miami and the make up artist they send to your hotel. Also does anyone have a hotel in the area they recommend for out of town guests? Plus I will take any other advice or details you wish to share!! Thank you!

We stayed at the LaQuinta Inn Airport East (i think it was east), and they were good - clean and comfortable, with a Benigans right outside within walking distance. They had free parking for the week, a pool, free breakfast and free shuttle to the port.
However, if you're having an embarkation day wedding, you might want to set up private transportation to make sure you get to the port on time. Their shuttle was CHAOS and didn't start until late morning. I would have paid for a private one if I could do it over.
We didn't have an embarkation day wedding, so I'm not 100% sure about hair & make-up in Miami. I don't know who Carnival uses for their vendor, but I know other girls have spoken highly of Tiffany from Professional Elegance www.professionalelegance.com and Beauty by Noel www.beautybynoel.com.

Thank you!!! What transportation services are in the area? I wonder if chartering a bus is expensive?!

Even if you just called cabs, it's not that far to the terminal, and would be much easier than dealing with the free shuttle. I guess it depends how many people you have... Just my opinion, it was a hot, stressful morning :-)

Thanks! I think I am going to begin looking at chartering a bus. I think we are going to have 50 - 75 people.

I am looking for private charter as well. I want everyone to stay together and be there on time! I want one less thing to stress about. I will let you know when I find a good deal!

If you want to be close to the airport, I stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Airport South Blue Lagoon (www.hamptoninnmiamiairport.com) and it was very nice, but not much to do in the area. Closer to the Port of Miami, there is another Hampton Inn - Hampton Inn & Suites Miami Brickell Downtown (www.hamptoninnmiamibrickell.com) that is amazing. It is about one year old, and very well located by Mary Brickell Village - cool place to eat and play.
Transportation from the Hotels to the Port is fairly easy. Both hotels have a cruise package with two one-way transport to POM but a cab won't be expensive - $10 from Brickell and $20-25 from the Airport. The company that makes the transportation for the hotel can get you a good deal for all your guests.

I am also getting married on the Liberty in Dec- an embarkation day wedding. Thanks for the advice acireta. Although the hotel says they will provide transportation I will take a taxi.
As the time draws near I am a bit anxious. Does anyone have any feedback on the disco for reception?
