Default Airport Shuttle From Fort Lauderdale To The Port of Miami

Myself and (4) others are taking a 7-day Western Caribbean cruise on the Carnival Triumph in August. Anyway.... what I am finding out is that it is much cheaper for us to fly from our airport in Buffalo to Ft. Lauderdale rather than into Miami.

Can anyone recommend a good resonable shuttle service from Ft. Lauderdale to the Port of Miami?

Carinval wants $300.00 round trip for the (5) of us.

Thanks

Probably cheaper to use a taxi for that many. I think it is like 72.00 each way.

Check out the Ft. Lauderdale airport website and go to Ground Transportation. They will list all shuttles, limosines, taxis, etc. Last time I flew into Ft. Lauderdale, I took the Shared Ride Shuttle, but I don't know how much it is now.

Kiosk is right outside the baggage claim for shuttles, limos and taxi's. I think prices are posted.

I did some checking for my daughter and her family of 5 who will be flying in and out of Ft Lauderdale for our cruise in April out of Miami. I got a quote for a stretch limo from the airport to the port for $112. More than a cab but way less than Carnivals $30pp.

If you fly in the night before and stay at the Best Western they have a free shuttle service to Port Everglades.

I just got a quote from ACE (9877-438-2645) of $85 (one-way) for a private car from FTL to the Miami cruise dock -- I haven't used them (or even cruised yet) but you might give them a call.

The quote for the limo for 5 people was from: http://www.a1worldwidelimo.com/

Their quote included gratutity and a $10 port fee.

I'm not sure if we are going to use them or pay the 65-70 for a van size cab as 5 people will not fit in a regular cab.
