There’s no place like Miami. When it comes to cruise port, it won’t be easy for you to find other ports that are as “colorful” as the Port of Miami. Great nature, wonderful tourist attractions, various water sports, fantastic eco-tourism, lots of golf courses, excellent beaches, various shopping areas and all kinds of cuisines. This is also one of the few places in the world where you often have to brake when driving just to avoid running over an alligator.
