Default FLL or Miami airport?

I am going on the Valor out of Miami on October 28th. I'm wondering how much of a pain it is to fly into Fort Lauderdale instead of the Miami airport. Do you think I can still get shuttle service from the airport to the port, or would I have to pay for my own taxi?

As I answered in a different post, the shuttle from FLL to Port of Miami was $18pp in June and was simple to do. Sign up right outside the baggage claim area at FLL. The cruise personnel will even help you find it.

Depends on price you can get for air to Miami vs Fort. Add $18 and tips from FLL to Miami. We can always get a better price out of PA to FLL, even if we pay the $18 ea to get to Miami and back to FLL airport. We also get the price 10 months out or as soon as availability of air. Thats when its the cheapest.

Just alittle west of HBG, in Mechanicsburg, home of the Pennsylvania Posse, I'm a big sprint car fan. Use to go to the Reading Fairgrounds till it became a shopping mall. I lived in Lebanon at that time.

We're leavong for a cruise next saturday. We fly into Ft. L, and get shuttled to Miami. Once the cruise is over you can also easily get shuttles back from Miami, infact if your plane leaves later in the evening you can take a Miami excursion that ends in a shuttle back to Ft.L. The reason were going through the trouble is becuase we got $10 skybus flights. Can't beat that.

IF at all possible, I will NOT fly out of Miami! It has got to be the most unorganized airport I have ever seen. We had a flight at 12:45 our last cruise and BARELY made it! The lines were out the doors and we arrived at the airport around 9ish! Maybe I just hit a bad day - but if I had the choice between FLL and Miami -- I'll go FLL!

Earlier this year, I took Carnival's air. I flew into MIA and out of FLL. No problems ! 8)
The cruiseline's transfer buses go to both airports .
