Explore Miami's Cuban heritage as you travel along Calle Ocho to the area affectionately known as Little Havana. Have your camera ready as you take in the glitz and glamour of South Beach and its unique Art Deco District.
Upon arrival at Bayside Market Place, your mode of transport changes, as you step aboard the Island Queen for a 1½-hour leisurely cruise on the city's waterways. View the Port of Miami -- the Cruise Capital of the World -- where you will have an opportunity to snap a photo of your ship. Then, cruise to Fisher Island for a closer look at the multi-million-dollar homes owned by the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Boris Becker and Paul Newman. As you pass Star Island, peek into the garden of Rosie O'Donnell's and Gloria Estefan's estates. Another popular property to watch for is the honeymoon cottage once occupied by Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher.
As you make your way back to Bayside, savor the spectacular famous Miami skyline.
Your tour ends with a transfer to Miami Airport or a return to the ship.
Please note: There are a few steps to board the Island Queen. This tour is available to guests returning to the ship and to guests whose cruise ends in Miami, with flights from Miami Airport after 4pm for domestic flights and 5pm for international flights. If you have already purchased an airport transfer with your cruise booking, it will be refunded on board the ship, as this excursion automatically includes a transfer.
