Tips for cruising to Miami

Currency considerations

While in Miami, it’s important to note that the official currency is the US Dollar (USD). It is advisable to carry cash in small denominations, as many small businesses, street vendors, and public transportation services may not accept credit cards. ATMs are widely available throughout the city, but make sure to check with your bank about potential foreign transaction fees. In restaurants and bars, tipping is customary, with a standard rate of 15-20% of the total bill for good service.

Customs and traditions to be aware of 

Miami’s diverse and multicultural community is one of its most defining aspects. While the city is quite open and welcoming, it’s essential to be aware of and respectful towards the various customs and traditions of the different cultural groups that call Miami home. In Little Havana, for instance, you’ll find a strong Cuban influence, and it’s not uncommon for locals to greet each other with a warm hug or kiss on the cheek. Be prepared to adapt to a more laid-back and relaxed pace of life, often referred to as “Miami time.”

Making the most use of short durations in port

If your cruise stop in Miami is brief, it’s essential to prioritize your activities to make the most of your time. Choose a few top attractions that are close to each other to minimize travel time. A great way to see multiple sights quickly is by joining a guided tour, whether by bus, bike, or even a Segway. Alternatively, you could opt for a hop-on-hop-off sightseeing bus that allows you to explore at your own pace while still covering a significant number of attractions.

Transport

Miami offers a variety of transportation options for visitors. The Metromover, a free automated train system, covers downtown Miami, making it a convenient and cost-effective way to navigate the city centre. The Metrorail and Metrobus systems provide affordable connections to major attractions, neighbourhoods, and the Miami International Airport. Taxis and rideshare services like Uber and Lyft are also widely available. If you prefer a more active mode of transport, consider renting a bike from one of the many Citi Bike stations scattered throughout the city.
