From the UK you will not face any differences. Just tell the check in desk you are travelling using your visa - they will probably ask anyway.

When entering the US you may be sent to secondary processing, but I doubt it.
Thank you mate
Its my first time going into America so pretty happy! Just took so damn long. Do you know much about Miami? Im staying in Miami in a casino hotel just before I go to Miami Port, Is there any good bars etc to visit.. its in a place called the Miccosukke hotel.. anything near by to go to for the evening?

I would head to Little Havana -- 8th Street, aka Calle Ocho.

I spent most of my growing-up years in Miami and was there around 25 years.

The Miccosukee Resort is not in the city, it's on Krome Avenue at the edge of the Everglades, the complete opposite side of town from the Port. Street development on Krome Avenue is minimal and you won't find anything around there. Krome Detention Centre is also near there. However that area is something of a gateway for Everglades National Park so if nature is up your alley it's a good jumping-off point for that.

Give yourself plenty of time to get to the Port when it's time for you to do so. Traffic is ferocious and you will have a long way to go. Second thing I will mention is make sure you have the right port, that it is the Port of Miami and not Port Everglades (in Ft Lauderdale) as cruises leave from both.

As you head into the city from the hotel you will first cross suburbia which will have various American chains and strip malls. As Miami sprawled it tended to sprawl westwards until legislation came in to stop further encroachment on the Everglades - landing you will notice how the city seems to come to a dead stop at certain roads.
Earlier poster mentioned Calle Ocho, that will be something for culture etc but bear in mind that will be quite a ways from where you will be though near the same street technically. A taxi from there to your hotel will cost you a fortune. With traffic you are probably looking at about a 60-90 minute drive to get from that hotel to Miami Beach (which is an island offshore connected to the mainland by causeways, not a patch of sand in on the mainland coast). Getting to the Little Havana part of Calle Ocho will be closer but not really "near."

A hire car is a must.

Good luck.

Do you know Spanish as well as English and your mother tongue? If you are planning on drinking and gambling in Miami knowing Spanish will be a big help.

Also how long does the crew visa allow you to remain on land in the US?

PS Got my answer ... 29 days ... The transit visa D1 for a crew member allows the visaholder to be onshore for 29 days.
