Is it cheaper to fly into Ft Lauderdale w/transfers or Miami
We have the cruise picked now its time for the how to get to and from decision. Its going to cost an extra 106$ total to fly into Miami directly. What is the cost usually for 2 people to and from Miami out of Ft. Lauderdale? I'm guessing that its going to be more convenient and cost effective to fly into and out of Miami. Any help or direction is appreciated, thanks!
Are you coming the day before and staying at a hotel? or flying in the morning of your cruise? If it's the morning of, I would recommend flying into Miami. If it's the day before, relax and enjoy Ft. Lauderdale and ride the water taxis. The above company will pick you up at your hotel and return you to the airport when you return. Enjoy.

If you are flying into FLL and leaving out of Miami, transfers thru Carnival is $48 per person. If you fly into MIA and leave out of Port of Miami, it is $28 per person. That is the "round trip" price of both.
My wife and I sailed out of Miami on the Liberty last month. We have the option of flying out of Newark, NJ (to Miami or Fort Lauderdale) or Newburgh, NY. We flew from Newburgh to FLL because of the flight schedule and it was more convenient, even thou the cost was about the same. We used Go Transportation from FLL airport to the port of Miami. Our plane arrived around 10:30, we grabbed our bags and the Go Transportation booth was just outside the baggage claim area at curbside. We only waited about 10 minutes to be pickup and the ride was about 30-45 minute ($18. pp plus tip). Everything went very smooth.
On our return we decide to take the transfer offered by Carnival ($24. pp) back to the airport. We were one of the first people off th ship and had plenty of time to check our bags and go through security (our flight was at 12:05). We found FLL airport less of a hassle and much easier to go through than Miami.
I also will be flying into FLL and cruising out of MIA. I called Go shuttle and they quoted me $23.
On the return I think I will do either the cruise ship transfers back to FLL or just cab it.
FLL had the better flight times then MIA.
Enjoy your cruise!
