Default Transport from Miami Airport to Port

Is taxi or bus or some other transport the best way to get from the airport at Miami to the port?

Taxi is usually the best price. Sometimes the Carnival transfers are cheaper if you are sailing solo or two in your party.

Thanks. There are 4 of us, so I guess the taxi would be best. Do you know if they usually have lots of taxis at the airport, or is it something we need to prearrange?

There will be loads of taxis outside of the baggage area - you will have no problem

They also have a shuttle bus that takes several people at a time it`s about 8.00 per person and there is plenty of space for luggage that is our problem we never fit in a cab bc of the suitcases. When we travel 4 or more at a time we usually use the shuttle bus. The buses are always there in the baggage floor. Enjoy the cruise ours isn`t for another 6 months....

Thanks all of you for your ideas. We'll have to see how much luggage the 4 of us have, and then decide on taxi or shuttle. Enjoy your cruise also. It'll be here before you know it.

We will be returning a car at the Miami airport before going to the Port. Does anyone know if a cab would come to the airport car rental location (which might actually be outside the airport) to pick us up?

Yes they will pick you up at the car rental but you should check if your rental company had any locations near the port that way the taxi fare will be cheaper. We are renting from Budget and the have one only half a mile away.

Depending on the car rental place - you may get a free shuttle to the port. We rented from Dollar and they provided a free shuttle to the port.

Alamo has a free shuttle to the airport and also the port. They are not on the airport property but offer this shuttle. We got a great price from them in April and the shuttle worked well.
