Hello Debbie, when we sailed the Glory in 2004 , we rented a car and drove to port canaveral, we flew in the day before and got a room at the radison in port canaveral, turned in the rental car the day of the cruise in port canaveral took the free shuttle from avis back to the hotel then took the free shuttle from the radison to the ship, it sounds like a lot but it was very easy, and the radison will be full of fellow cruisers, and puts on a great pool party the night prior to the cruise. I think the cost for the rental was around 60 bucks
Mears Transportation Services, which operates the cruise/airport transfer services for Carnival, Disney, and Holland America, charges $25/person for the 45 minute ride. They have shuttle vans and luxury sedans if the thought of sitting on a bus makes you slightly queezy.
I'm TomS, and I approved this message.
