Default Tranportation from MIA to port...quick stop

We (party of 4) are flying to MIA next month to sail on the Valor. Opted NOT to take Carnival's transportation. Has anyone booked privately, and asked them to stop along the way? If so, who did you use. DH is a pepsi guy, and the ship is all coke, so we'd like to make a stop for a quick purchase. We ordered booze from the Bon Voyage dept, so we just need DH's mixer.

Can all 4 of you fit into a taxi?? Its not that far, just ask the taxi driver to stop. I would think it depends on how much luggage you have if you all would fit. Its not far enough that Id hire a service/driver.

I doubt we can all fit in a traditional taxi, as we'll each have one fairly large piece, plus a carry one. I was hoping someone has used a particular transportation company they could recommend.

Everytime I've flown into Miami, I have found many taxis at the airport are minivan type taxis. You can easlily fit 4 people and 2 bags each in one of the minivan taxis.
