Default How do I get from Ft Lauderdale to Miami

Please help. I am doing the VOS 12/18/04. Originally I booked US Air directly to Miami. They changed their flight times and I had to cancel the reservation. Rebooked on Southwest Airlines but now we are flying in and out of Ft. Lauderdale and the cruise leaves from Miami. There's 4 of us and lots of luggage. What's the best way to get to the port from Ft Lauderdale? Also has anyone flown Southwest Airlines?

Thanks,
Bev

Super Shuttle or limo to get there and maybe do the return transfers from the ship--- I did that and it worked out great---- I did do a shore excurtion that ended up at the airport-- worked out kind of nice

The fare from FLL to Miami cruise ship terminals is $65 (2 persons) using Ace Tours and travel. They have a great web site and are located in Fll.

We are commuting from Fll to Miami the same day to go on the Norwegian Sun. This is how we are making the connection.

I think you could rent a van or SUV for the price of transfers or a car service. We have flown from Phoenix to FLL on SWA and rented from Enterprise. They let you return the car in downtown Miami and then shuttle you to the port for free. Some companies make you turn in the car at Miami airport. That's why we like Enterprise in this particular situation.

As Jen says RENT A CAR. A van or 2 cars would be less stressful than a shuttle. I have used Hertz in the past. Turn the car in near the airport and they have shuttles running very frequently to the docks.

Thanks for the ideas. Unfortunately Enterprise is sold out for 12-18-04 so I think David and I will stick with the shuttle service. I guess I'll give Hertz a call to just to see if that will work instead.
