Bild in Lightbox öffnen (open image in lightbox). Well after going through the immigration procedure of the US at 6:30 in the morning (!) we left the ship after 3,5 weeks and took a taxi to our hotel at Miami Beach. This was the view from our room ...
Bild in Lightbox öffnen (open image in lightbox). This is how it looks there basically, concrete, buildings everywhere ... to our taste overrated and overpriced ...

Bild in Lightbox öffnen (open image in lightbox). We thought it was a good idea to go to an American restaurant in the hotel, the "Gotham Steak" ... it turned out to be fucking overpriced ... the whole menu cost us 450 USD!! ... at least the steak was great and the waiter was very friendly ...

The next was 200 USD and Thomas still said "cheaper" ;-)) Then he just walked away with the words "then I leave you to it" ... !!!! The reason maybe this shelf and the fact that the wine list came on an ipad!

 We weren't overwhelmed with Miami, maybe we missed the more interesting spots (although we were warned not to go to "Little Haiti" or "Little Havanna") ... so to summarise Miami: been there, done that.

Well this cruise has come to an end ... we visited an amazing amount of places and we hope, you enjoyed reading this ... we definitely enjoyed this wonderful journey!!!
