Miami Hotel & Shuttle for Victory
Hi - we are joining Carnival Victory in May and will be flying in from the UK arriving on the Saturday night to sail Sunday afternoon. Could anyone help with a good mid range hotel, which offers either shuttle from the airport to the hotel and/or to the pier the next day. Last time we cruised, we stayed a couple of days before so had a car, this time we do not arrive until 9.30pm so it is not worth it. Thank you. :)

I've heard that the Holiday Inn in downtown Miami has shuttles to the pier, or at least used to. If you can't find a hotel with a shuttle, there are plenty of good hotels in downtown Miami that are just a $6 cab ride from the pier.

Thank you very much for the infomation - I will check out the Holiday Inn, I just did not recall it was so close to the Pier from Down Town - so we can get a taxi no problem. Thank you.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Port of Miami last October and they did not have a shuttle service ...

You can get a taxi from the Airport for less then $30 with tip, it is a flat rate, to the hotel. Then a taxi from the hotel to the Port for $10.

We found this to be a great option and it allowed us to have a great view in the morning of the ships before departing to the Port.
