We flew into Fort Laurderdale and stay with family for a week before we cruise . We use a cruise connection bus to get to the fort lauderdale Port

You can check out this site or call I believe they go to either Fort Lauderdale or Miami
Also on line there are other sources of transportation such as shuttles
or limo's




have fun on your cruise, we will be sailing in Nov out of Fort Lauderdale

There is no drop-off charge for rental cars within Florida. Checking on a one way car rental might be cost effective.

Know that it is at least an hour, maybe a little more from West Palm to the port in Miami....provided that you don't have troubles in traffic.

I know, having worked with some people from West Palm Airport, that they do not consider themselves a place to fly in for cruises. I suggest going with what another said, rent a car. We flew into Ft. Lauderdale the day before, rented a car for $30 with Thrifty. Drove to Miami the next day, dropped off at the Miami Airport and we got a free shuttle right to the port from Thrifty. Worked out great and probably the cheapest option unless you have a lot of people who can split the cost of a van. West Palm is about 2 hours, maybe slightly less, to Miami.
