I could probably research this myself but thought I would just ask the real experts here first. Will be sailing out of Miami in late November aboard the Destiny. Managed to find some decent airfare despite the Holiday craziness but will be flying into Ft Lauderdale.
First Question- Best bet for getting from Ft Lauderdale to Miami. We are arriving the morning of the cruise. Use the Carnival transfer? Do they offer it from there? Taxi? Other?
Second Question- Our flight home is not until 7PM so we will be spending a good part of the day in Ft Lauderdale departure day. Will Carnival send the luggage to Ft Lauderdale airport? I know they do this in the port city but not sure if they will send it up 95? We jst don't wanna lug it around and would not mind finding something to do during the day.
There is also a nice shuttle service called SAS that does transfers between FLL and the Miami Port each way. There web site is www.ridesas.com

I agree with the above posters who recommended SAS Transportation, they have a very good reputation in south Florida and are very reasonable.
Can't help you with your second question, I kind of think they don't process luggage to Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood Int'l airport. Maybe you can check your luggage with your departing airline and take a taxi from the airport to the beach? restaurant?
