    The internet is full of videos of a privileged few 'early access program' drivers testing Version 10 of Tesla's Full Self Driving Beta autopilot software.

    Allegedly, release 10.1 is 'imminent' (possibly this Friday, 9/24). This will introduce a 'button' into the Service menu of the car that will let regular drivers of autopilot equipped cars (i.e., those not invited into the 'early access program') enable FSD, subject to a 7 day pre-approval process when the car assesses your driving habits.

    Please join us for a Q&A at 6:00pm on Monday 27th to discuss the FSD Beta. Since it is so new we might not have many answers, but we'll at least see what questions there are and try and get some answers where we can.

    The webinar link will appear below here in the confirmation email.

    Let's go on safari!

    On Saturday November 13th, join club members for a silent caravan drive through the Lion Country Safari in West Palm Beach.  Following the safari we will have 30 minutes reserved at the pavilion with a raffle of prizes from our friends at EVANNEX. 

    After the raffle, you are free to stay and enjoy the other areas of Lion Country Safari. 

    The best time to view the animals is either early morning or late afternoon as the animals are usually resting during the middle of the day, so we'll meet at a nearby Publix Parking lot at 9:00am and travel the 4 miles to Lion Country Safari at 9:30AM to arrive just after the park opens.

    We are able to get a discounted group rate of $12.50 + tax per person (this is more than 50% off regular price). The link below (coming soon) will take you to the Eventbrite page where you can buy your tickets for yourself and anyone else going in your Tesla. Children 2 yrs. old and younger do not need a ticket. 

    If you plan to attend please RSVP on the club site, but also remember to purchase your tickets through the Eventbrite link. You will not be able to take advantage of the group rate discount if you purchase your tickets on the day of/onsite.

    (Eventbrite link will be provided by Lion Country Safari soon)

    Join Florida Tesla Enthusiasts aboard the beautiful Enchanted Princess Cruise Ship on February 28, 2022, for a 10-Day Southern Caribbean Voyager Departing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

    We had such a blast cruising the Caribbean that we decided to plan another cruise this time for 10 days aboard the spectacular Enchanted Princess, the newest ship in the Princess fleet.

    Departing:  

    Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades) on Monday afternoon, February 28, 2022, at 4:00 pm and returning on Thursday morning, March 10, 2022 at 6:00 am.

    Ports of Call

    Princess Cays, Bahamas; St. Thomas, Virgin Islands; Antigua; St. Lucia; Barbados; St. Kitts.

    Click here for the Ship’s Itinerary

    Reserving a Stateroom

    After you register to attend this event, you will receive an automated message with booking instructions to join our Tesla Group package. Due to COVID cabin fever, there is a high demand for cruising, and staterooms are booking up quickly.  Our Princess agent will be on the lookout for promotions or discounts, and if they materialize, she will apply them to our group package. We recommend that you book early to reserve your stateroom. You will have until November 2021 to cancel and get your deposit returned without penalty.

    COVID-19 Considerations

    We are proceeding with this club event.

    Legal battles continue, that affect the Florida cruise industry and CDC coronavirus cruise requirements. Click here to read about them.

    At this time, the various cruise lines, including Princess Cruises, are implementing temporary COVID-19 measures to minimize the risk to their guests.  Regardless of the outcome of the legal battles, we believe that these interim measures will adequately address the safety of our fully vaccinated members and their guests.  

    We strongly recommend that all members eligible to be vaccinated do so, especially if they intend to take a cruise. For this cruise, being vaccinated will enhance your safety and improve your onboard experience. For that reason, we recommend that you refrain from bringing children under the age of 12 since they currently are not eligible for vaccines.

    Here are Princess Cruise's COVID-19 Guest Protocols as of August 12, 2021.

    The protocols have been updated, and currently, they state that guests will be asked to confirm their status as fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and provide proof of vaccination in advance of boarding. They also require ALL fully vaccinated guests to produce a negative, medically-observed viral COVID-19 test (PCR or antigen) taken within 3 days of their embarkation on all Princess sailings.

    Here is a link to Princess's Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) as of August 11, 2021. In particular, please address your attention to the Before You Sail questions.

    Please note that individuals who, under applicable laws, have a medical or religious exemption from being vaccinated; nevertheless must comply with applicable CDC requirements.  In summary, they must show proof of negative PCR test results before embarkation, pass tests at the terminal and pay $150 per person for the testing.  They must also wear a face mask indoors, maintain physical distancing, and are limited on which shore excursion they can take. Although the FAQ doesn't discuss the issue in detail, based on what is being done on other cruise lines, unvaccinated guests may not be permitted to attend specific venues intended for vaccinated passengers.

    Group Events

    Whether we organize group events together will depend on how many sign up for this cruise. We expect that COVID-19 considerations will be mitigated by late February 2021 and cruising will be permitted by the CDC. Nevertheless, depending on the course of the pandemic, there may still be requirements for some level of COVID-19 protocols that could limit our degree of social interaction.

    Each port of call can be experienced individually or through the excursions that Princess offers. Fully vaccinated guests may choose to explore destinations independently on self-guided tours. Unvaccinated guests will only be permitted to go ashore through shore excursions sold by or through Princess.

    Cruise Parking

    Princess ships generally berth at Pier 2/Terminal 2 in Port Everglades. On days when multiple ships are in port, another berth may be assigned. Ship pier/terminal assignments are posted at the entrance of the port and will direct you to the appropriate location. 

    There is a 6-level parking garage adjacent to terminal 2 that costs $15 per day. (Price is subject to change.)

    Nearest Superchargers

    Terminal 2 is about 10 miles east of the Plantation Supercharger Station.  It is about 15 miles north of the Aventura Supercharger Station and about 34 miles south of the Delray Beach Supercharger Station.  If you plan to leave your Tesla parked for the 10 days unplugged, it would be prudent to leave it with an adequate charge because it will lose charge during the cruise.

    Hotels

    For anyone interested in staying at a hotel the night before departure, Hyatt has two nearby hotels with Tesla Destination Chargers.   

    Hyatt House Ft. Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port

    Hyatt Place Ft. Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port

    Both hotels are about 6 miles from the cruise port. Their locations are programmed into your Tesla's navigation system.

     

    We look forward to seeing many of you on this Cruise!
