Seize the day and make the most of your time in Miami! If you have a few hours between flights or after your cruise and you’re looking to hit the town even if just for an afternoon there are a few options for luggage storage so you don’t have anything weighing you down.
Miami International Airport has luggage storage options open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Charges depend on baggage size and daily rates are available (maximum of 60 days).
If you have a few days in Miami after a lengthy cruise you might not want the hassle of transporting your full load to a hotel, after all this is supposed to be a stress-free beach vacation! Check with your cruise line for luggage forwarding options. Another option, if you’ve come into town with a few hours or a morning to spare before your cruise departs is early baggage check in times. Call in advance to confirm whether or not your selected cruise line offers this service and be sure to ask how much time you’ll have before you depart.
If you have enough time, you can opt to take a tour. BigBus Tours has a Ship to Shore Miami tour that can be arranged by your cruise line. This package is available exclusively to cruise ship passengers disembarking in the Port of Miami and includes a luggage storage service. Enjoy the best sights in Miami on a fully narrated 90-minute tour. Afterwards, a complimentary shuttle service will take you to either Miami International or Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airports. If you are traveling to a local hotel, a taxi service is available at your own expense.
The last option for luggage store is checking with your hotel. Many hotels will hold your bags even after you’ve checked out so that you can check off those last “to-dos” from your list without lugging around a carry-on or duffel bag.
Enjoy those last (or first) few hours and be sure to call in advance because policies vary from hotel to hotel and cruise line to cruise line.
