Don't know about the shuttle just to cocoa beach area. I did look into cabs, and it would have been $160 for me to taxi to the port.(!) I'd look into rental cars if I were you. I booked the Royal Carribean bus to and from the Orlando airport. (I had arranged my own airfare.) It was a breeze. Very efficient. $50. I had to go back through my travel agent to add on the bus since I was booked on the cruise as part of a group. Start with RC's 800 number if you booked the cruise yourself.
