Default Orlando to Port Area Advice Please

Hi everyone,

I am debating between 3 pickup companies to be picked up from the airport and taken to a hotel near the port. The difference between the 3 companies is $10. They are between $50 and $60 each way. I would like to know if anyone has any positive or negative experience with any of them. The companies are:
-Royal Transportation / Royal Cab
-Coca Beach Taxi / Beach Bound Shuttle
-Port Canaveral Shuttle Service

Thanks.

We use the Cocoa Beach Shuttle service a few years ago and we were happy with their service. Have you looked into renting a car? We did the next time from Budget. It is only an hour drive to PC and you will have more freedom to look around the area maybe even picking up last minute items. Their drop off location is the closest to the port with free shuttle service. We used the ships transfers back to the airport after the cruise.

We used Budget to/from Orlando . The company has a shuttle both to/from

the pier. The car rental is only about $60 each way. Then you can travel on

your own schedule and not the shuttle's.
