Default Ft. Lauderdale to Miami Pier

Hi-
Does anyone know how much a taxi would be from the airport at Ft. Lauderdale to the port in Miami? We are a family of 5 and the travel agent said it's $48 per person roundtrip. I know we won't fit into a standard taxi, however a van taxi would work if anyone knows the rates? Thank you in advance

The transfers from the cruiseline may be very affordable- and they will handle the luggage!

For the most part, transfers are an easy solution for many, though one I don't especially care for. The wait time for the bus to fill up, might be longer in this scenario, since you are going to Lauderdale, and most people do fly out of the city they cruise from. Price compare to do what's best for your needs. Have a great cruise!

In most cases, the cost of transfers is a joke! Taxi fares can't be much. The distance between the airport and cruiseport can't be more than two miles. I bet that the taxi is cheaper.

The OP is asking about transportation between Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. It is about 35 miles. A cab ride is about $70 each way.

The distance between the Fort Lauderdale airport and Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale port) is just a couple of miles and around a $15 cab ride.

Take care,
Mike
