Default Miami or Fort Lauderdale?

The Carnival Miracle departs from Port Everglades. Is is closets to Miami airport or Fort Lauderdale airport? Any idea how much by shuttle (taxi) to the port from either center?
Are there any free shuttles with certain hotels?

Thanks!

I would fly into Ft. Lauderdale. The port is right next to the airport, short 10 minute taxi ride from airport.

Donna is right, as usual. From the Ft. Lauderdale airport, you can see the ships! It's actually, right next door, so if there's any way, you need Ft Lauderdale airport. Have a great cruise, and let us know how it went! (The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I are booked on Miracle Oct. 22nd, and can't wait. She's our favorite Carnival ship!)

Ft. Lauderdale is a piece of cake! If you go down to the rental car area, walk out to the curb look to your right and there is a free shuttle there that will take you to the cruise port. You'll need to take a cab back to the airport when you return.
