My husband and I our taking our first cruise on the Inspiration on April 11th out of Tampa. Our flight gets in at 11:10 on the 11th. Should we arrange ground transporation through Carnival or should we just go ahead and take a taxi. Which would be cheaper, faster, and most importantly easiest? We like hassle free vacations. Also for the transporation back to the airport on the 16th which would be better for us since our flight leaves at 1:54?
I say take a cab, this way you'll only pay one fare. With the transfers, you'll have to pay for two. Forgot exactly how much they are, but cabs are definitely cheaper, and there will be loads of them, both at the airport and at the dock once the ship returns.
Have a great time! Tell us all about it when you get back!
Definitely take the taxi. The port is only about 15-20 min from the airport. Taxi should be about $20 total.
