Default Transfer vs Taxi

I am taking a cruise out of San Juan in November and i'm trying to decide if I should ger the Transfer offered though carnival or get a taxi. Which would be cheaper and is there some reason I should go with the one over there other? This is my first cruise. Thanks

Taxi would probably be cheaper. The differance is that with a taxi you have to take care of your luggage and drag it to the taxi stand from the baggage area and from the drop off point to the baggage handlers. The transfer takes you right to the doorstep of the port and they handle your luggage. Taxi is also faster.

24 cruises and counting!

I've found that the transfer that CCL provides is cheaper than a taxi. If you could call toll free to the San Juan airport you could ask the transportation counter what is provided to the docks sometimes that is cheaper than the transfer.

Same question, but LAX to Long Beach, CA. Carnival's transfer at $38 per person or a taxi for a party of 5 plus luggage?
