Default MIA to Port of Miami Transfer

I am looking for some suggestions for a transfer from Miami Int. to the Port of Miami. On our last cruise we waited a very long time for the Carnival tansfer and I dont want to do that again. There will be 7 of us total with about 2 bags each, and I was curious if anyone had any suggestions. I am open to a Limo or shuttle, any help would be greatly appreciated.......Thanks Rich

We had 9 people and had no problem finding a van to hold us all.

You could even divide up and go with 2/3 cabs or a limo, they are available and much quicker and less hassle than the cruiseline transfers. Plus, I bet less $ at the same time.

Not sure about the limos, but the taxi's will be everywhere.

When you are at the port coming back they will actually fight for your fare!

are there alot of taxi vans? thats def what we would need, otherwise we will have to have a shuttle, it makes no sense for us to take more than 2 taxis.

RMG1600:

We looked into purchasing shuttle service and taxi fares. We have 8 traveling with 14-15 bags (including carry ons) and decided to go the limo route.

We found a limo company in Miami that had an Excursion limo that seats 22 and we are being charged $150 plus tip and taxes.

Shuttle service was going to cost $20 per person (x 8=$160).

Figured it was worth the little bit more to have a little more room when driving from point A to point B.

Good luck and safe sailing.
