Default Do cruise lines have shuttles to/from Melbourne Int'l

I am researching a cruise on RCI next year (Freedom of the Seas) and thought I'd try out Melbourne Int'l Airport because it is closer to Port Canaveral than Orlando. Do you know if any of the Cruise Lines that use Port Canaveral have shuttle service to/from Melbourne? I assume they all must have shuttles to/from Orlando, but I haven't seen anything about cruises offering shuttles from to/from Melbourne. If anyone knows if Royal Caribbean offers shuttle service to/from Melbourne, I'd really appreciate hearing from you.

While it is true, Melbourne is closer to the PC than Orlando, 27 miles vs 48, it is not straight fwy and could take the same amount of time, 51 mins vs 53 mins (per google maps). I remember growing up on Merritt Island and my parents hated driving to Melbourne because of the traffic. I know times and road have changed. I think is also less expensive to fly into MCO. For shuttle service, we have used The Cocoa Beach Shuttle and they were friendly and timely. Good luck and Enjoy.

Thanks. I did check flight prices (Orlando vs Melbourne) and they were cheaper. Thanks for the shuttle recommendation.
