We are going on the Glory in Oct and wondering if anyone has used a shuttle service to Cocoa Beach hotels from Orlando airport and then back to airport from the ship? Who would you recommend?
thanks for your help.
We used the Carnival shuttle bus from Orlando airport to Port Canaveral. I think we paid $60 each for a roundtrip. You'll see a Carnival representative at the luggage pickup area at the airport. You can buy the ticket there.
yeah, since it's a 45 miniute drive to P.C. from the airport, it sounds like you're coming in the day before your cruise, so you may have to get a car rental as cruise shuttles may only run on days tehre is a cruise departing. So use a car rental co that also has an office within 5 miles or so of your hotel, and they will likely drive you to your hotel after you drop off the car or it will be cheap enough to get a cab.
What you may want to do to makeit easier on yourself is to stay at a hotel near the Orlando airport, as we did. We stayed at the LaQuinta west (there are 2 La Quintas by the airport). We got their freeshuttle from the airport upon our arrival and the next morning it took us again to the area where we waited for theMears transfer (motor coach) that took us to the Port. It has a nice pool, it's a 3 story hotel, and they have a free continental breakfast. You sign up at night for the shuttle time in the morning - every hour, on the hour, they leave. 5 am, 6 am, 7 am, etc. to the airport. We stayed there the night the cruise ended and checked out stuff in Orlando before we flew home the night before. You'll be close to a few malls as well. Some rooms have a microwave and small refrigerator, so ask for oneif you want one. There's also a McDonald's next door and a seafood restaurant, as well as a gas station/7-11 a few doors down to grab snacks for the hotel room/road.
