Hi all I have lived in Florida almost 20 years and can actually say I HAVE NEVER been to the Port Of Miami...so I am asking has anyone been there? Is it expensive to park your car there for 7 days? I only live about one and a half hours from there, if that...so I could easily drive, but dont know how much of a hassle it will be driving in there. Maybe I could just do the 20 bucks a day rental car thing and drop my car off down in Miami and leave it..any suggestions? Thanks all~ Joannfla
I've never driven to that port but have done the rental car thing before and recommend it. I'm sure you can find one close enough that has a free port shuttle. Be sure to reserve a car for your drive home. This way you can save the port parking $ too.

Dollar Rent A Car - I rented at the Sanford Airport, dropped at Miami International the next day at a rate of $16.99/day. I only needed a compact car, so this was great! They have a shuttle that runs to the port for free. Then reversed on the way back, took the shuttle to Dollar's office, got my car and was on the road in a few minutes.
From what I understand, parking is $20/day in Miami. I'm not sure if I read that on Carnival's website, but that's what's sticking in my mind.
