Default Any Carnival Shuttle Fees?

Is there a fee to take the shuttle from the airport in Miami to the Carnival port? If so, how much? How Long? Lines? Anything else I should know?

You should ask your travel agent the cost of that. I took the Carnival transfers from Orlando airport to Port Canaveral last year at a cost of $50 round trip. Now, that trip is farther away than the Miami one, so it shouldn't cost as much.

We're not using a travel agent, we're piecing our vacation together on our own. So where would I find this information?

Thanx,

you should be able to find the information on cruise ship transfers on Carnival's web site or by calling your PVP.

Is that per person? That's a lot of money for a shuttle. I took the whole family in a cab (no waiting either) from Ft Lauderdale to the cruise port and paid in the low $20s.

Yeah, I agree. That is steep. The hotel I'm staying at is a $5.00 taxi ride to the Miami port from what I am told. And the Hotel website says $20.00 to the airport. So shouldn't be over $25.00 total if someone were taking a cab from the Airport directly to the cruise. So $50.00 round trip for a cab, but you could put at least 4 people in a cab I guess.

Four people, maybe, but I doubt four people and all their luggage too.

Bottom line is I think the Carnival shuttle should be little to no cost.

I should have written two adults and two children. We had a good amount of luggage as we went to Universal and Disney after our cruise and had no problem. Shuttle at $50/person is overpriced.

Funny you should mention that That's what we're doing. I asked the question for the sake of Miami airport to port, + I'm in Miami for a couple days, but when we get off, we're renting a car and driving to Disney for 4 days 8)

I know from Ft Lauderdale cruise port there's a free bus that goes to the airport for dropoff to all of the car rental places. Have fun at Disney. Blizzard Beach is a great water park there. If you're there for 4 days, check out the Universal parks too. I actually like their parks better. They are more up to date and so is their entertainment themes.

We will be on the shuttle from Orlando airport to the port. DH and I, and the cost is 50.00 one way. I called PVP weeks ago and there was a price break so that is covered plus we got ship board credit. We will have Hertz pick us up at the port as we are renting a car for a few days. 50.00 one way for the two of us that is. Hope this helps

I'm not sure what the amount is at Cape Canaveral, but Jacksonville is $10.00 for Shuttle Express.
