I've tried to look through other posts on here to see if anyone else has posted this information and I can't find it. We are leaving for our honeymoon cruise out of the Port of Miami on a Friday and were going to fly down there Thursday night. I've looked into flights into both Ft. Lauderdale and Miami and can't decide which to do. Is there any easy way to get from the Ft. Lauderdale Airport to the Port of Miami the morning or the cruise? Any recommendations on where to stay in either Miami or Ft. Lauderdale that is cheap yet safe and close to transportation to the Port?
personally i hate flying in and out of Miami International Airport, its just such a hassle, Ft. Lauderdale is so much easier. If given the choice, i would fly into Ft. Lauderdale, make arrangements before hand for shuttle service to my hotel in Miami and from the cruise pier back to Ft. Lauderdale with the same company there are alot of shuttle service companies to choose from.- the Holiday Inn at Bayside Marketplace in Miami is a good choice and not horribly expensive, that way all you would have to do is when you check into your hotel, is to find out if they offer shuttle service to the pier, the vast majority of them do either complimentary or for a small fee.
