Default how do you get to port canaveral?

I"m sailing on the Carnival Fantasy to the Bahamas. How do I get from the Orlando airport to Port Canaveral (other than buying the Carnival bus ride)? Thanks!

We are going in April. My sister is renting a van for 12 from Budget (at the airport). they will have it for the night (they are flying in the day before). The morning of the cruise they take it back to Budget (which I understand is near the pier) and a shuttle takes them to the pier. Reverse for the way home. It was cheaper for them to rent a van to go back to the airport than to shuttle 9 people. Also, if you do a search on "Orlando ground transportation" you can find many limo and shuttle services.

Get the address of the port from the Carnival website and mapquest it to see about how many miles. The carnival website also has typical rates for taxi's from area airports, but that is my advise! We have never used their transportation....toooo expensive.

Where on Carnival's website did you find the taxi rates? We are a party of 6 and that would be $300 R/T with carnival, so if we can find a better deal I am all for it. Would prefer NOT to rent a van.would rather be limo'd or taxi'd.
Any ideas ?

$50 per person round-trip.
6 x $50 will be $300 for us........and I was hoping to find a limo service that might be cheaper.
Any ideas ?

Do a search on Orlando Ground transportation. You will come up with many companies. We were looking for a shuttle for 9 and I was coming up with around $200 RT plus tip, and possible airport charge. My sister decided to rent a van for 12 from Budget . She will turn it in the morning of the cruise, be shuttled to the pier, then pick it up again to go back to the airport. It will be the same price, plus she will have a way to get around the afternoon and evening before the cruise. The price, even including gas was the same as the shuttle.

Go to <htttp://artsshuttle.com> It should cost you about $90 each wat plus tip for 6. The exact fare will be on their website. They are excellent.

When my parents and I were there last year we rented a Mini Van from Budget ... we found this the best way to go as we arrived the day before ... this allowed us to be on our own and do some sight seeing ... Budget has a drop off location not far from the port and they provide a free shuttle to and from the port ...

My question for you would be when are you arriving ... this would help others help advise you as to what they would do ...

We used Legacy Limo Service. It was a couple of years ago. We were very happy with their service.
