Thanks in advance for all of your wonderful information.
We're having a similar dilemma as we are also flying in to FLL a day early and then our cruise leaves from Port of Miami. We're trying to figure out if we book a hotel close to FLL airport how we handle the shuttle/s ultimately to the Port. Hopefully someone out there will give us some suggestions. We've looked at both staying by the airport and by downtown Miami. Hotels in February are not as reasonable as I would have liked, but we're getting in to high season.
Any advice from an experienced traveler or FL resident would be much appreciated.
