One good piece of information deserves another.... Thanks for the info on transportation from Gatwick to Southampton. Being that I live in Florida, I am well aware of the transportation around the Florida ports. As stated by someone else, the taxi fare would be approximately $75 from Port Everglades to MIA. That would be for up to 4 persons, however, luggage space could be a problem! There is a shuttle service that charges around $20 per person for the same trip, but it could make several stops along the way, as it takes up to 9 passengers, and not everyone usually goes to the same place. On the other hand, after a trans Atlantic crossing, there will probably be many passengers looking for immediate transportation to MIA! Finally, RCCL will offer transfer service from the pier to MIA by coach! I believe that they charge $30 per person to go from the ship directly to MIA. You can confirm the price on RCCL's website, and if you desire, can book the transfer on the ship at the shore excursion desk during the crossing! Any other information about what to expect of do after arriving in Florida.... just ask. I will be more than willing to share my expertise! Otherwise, maybe we'll meet onboard the Jewel on the October 30th crossing!
Auf Wiedersehn for now,
