Air Tran just moved our flight to 11:58am leaving from Fort Lauderdale. Does this leave enough time to get from the Miami port to Ft. Lauderdale Airport? We are sailing on Explorer of the Seas with Royal Caribbean diembarking at 8:30am, if this makes a difference.
Also, what's the best way to get from the port? Taxi or what? Does anyone have a shuttle or car service you would recommend?
that's cutting it really really close. i don't think you can make it. IF you have an 8:30 disembarkation time that doesn't mean you will be off the ship and in a cab/shuttle by that time, that means at 8:30 they will call your luggage tag colors - you will have to go thru immigration, find your bags amongst the hundreds that have the same luggage tag colors, gather up your bags - grab a cab/shuttle - hope for no traffic, get to Ft.Lauderdale - unload, go thru security etc, etc.------ You could make it- it would be close if you were flying out of Miami. Try to get a later flight if you must fly out of Ft. Lauderdale.
