Hello-
Does anyone know what the cab fare is from the fort lauderdale airport to the pier for Royal Carribean?

It should run about $12 and there is no extra charge for luggage or extra passengers.
The cabs are metered and you will be "guided ' to the next available at the curb by a
"starter" at curbside. The trip is only about 10 minutes maybe a few minutes more if they hit a few lights.

Papa...

That sounds a bit high to me. (I have been scammed a few time at Ft Lauderdale). Make sure the meter is running and it comes out to about $7.50 (it is only 5 mninutes away). But I have had a few cabbies tell me it's a flat fee: $12

it isn't.

Florida cabbies are NOT well regulated. Watch yourself and the meter.

We decided to do this transfer ourselves many years ago, after finding out the taxi fare
including tip, is no greater than $10.00, from the airport to the pier or hotel. We always
stay at the Marriott Mariner the night before. This price was good thru last year (2003).

Just ask the cabbie the average meter rate at the airport. If it is any higher, you might want to check to see if the driver is using the meter or just charging you a flat rate.

That price is allowing for 3 bags per person.

I take it the RC pier is in Fort Lauderdale, since that taxi fare sounds really cheap.

Does anyone know the cost for taking a cab from the Fort Lauderdale airport to the Port of Miami (where NCL docks)?

Thanks much!

Thanks much, Mike. There are four of us, so I think a limo might be the easiest. Appreciate your help.

We are going to Disney world and then onto a cruise from Fort Lauderdale. What is the best way to get from one to the other.

Thanks

YOu have two choices, Fly then take a cab or rent a car and drive, it is a LONG drive.
