Default Port of Tampa- how do we?

We are cruising out of Tampa.

Best way to get to our hotel - cab, taxis or some limo service

We're using Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore. They will provide transportation to hotel from airport and transportation to pier if prearranged with the bellman. The rate, with an Entertainment card is only $89 and it is a five star property.

We were there in May of this year. We stayed at Marriott. We drove and parked at the pier.

The hotel was about 5 miles from Port Tampa. I think when we left that morning we just got the main road, I think is was highway 60 or 61 and don't get off of the road and you will run right into Port Tampa.

What an awesome sight to turn the curve and see you ship sitting there.

Have a wonderful cruise and enjoy every minute to the fullest.

The Marriott at the airport has a stay and park plan. You stay for one night and you get 7 days free parking ... then you could take a taxi to the pier. That is, of course, if you're driving into Tampa.
