The Sail Away Here we are! Married 45 years and decided to take a second honeymoon to celebrate! Our first honeymoon in 1969 was a two day trip to Carmel California, a short drive away from where we were married. We took our car across the state and visited family, then took the train down to Miami. It was fun, but......Never again, we didn't realize the risks. My recommendation is that you do not use the train on the day of your sailing. Trains are unreliable about arrival times and can be up to four hours late as this train was the very next day. But if you do, a taxi can be hired for just a few dollars from the train station to take you direct to the ship. It was very exciting when we boarded the Norwegian Pearl We immediately went to the buffet. We boarded very early around 11:00 even though we weren't scheduled until much later. They don't make you wait until your scheduled boarding time, you just process through.
