Default Transportation from JAX to port question...

We're leaving on Fascination on Saturday, April 18, and I was wondering if the Carnival shuttle that we can get between the airport and the ship is the best way to go or if anyone knows if there is a cheaper/faster way. We're flying independent of the cruise so have the option to choose - $15 pp seems reasonable for their shuttle but I'm not sure if a taxi might be cheaper or more convenient than sharing the shuttle/having to wait for the shuttle to fill up etc. There will be two of us. We'd appreciate any tips we can get! Thanks!

There is a van shuttle ($10 pp last time we used it) that is very easy.
The Carnival Rep will direct you where to pick it up. Never had to wait more than a few minutes for it to depart.

Thanks for the info about the shuttle. I also saw on another message board that a taxi between JAX and JAXport is about $30.
