Default FLL to Port taxi/shuttle

I will be leaving on Holland American Westerdam in a week. Which taxi and/or shuttle companies are the most reasonable and trustworthy to get me to the port? The port is less than 2 miles away from the airport, so I don't want to pay a ridiculous amount for that type of ride. What would be the typical fare? Which companies are more reliable and trustworthy than others? Any help would be appreciated.

We took a taxi for about $12. Shuttles are per person so that would cost more.

I agree, just grab a taxi, many there waiting to take you to the port.

Default Food for thought

I've taken a taxi from the airport many times,best way to go.
However on the return taxis can be hard to get,therefore you may consider buying a ticket while on the ship. Of course once your off the ship there'll be 40 taxis that are free.
Enjoy your cruise,I love HA.
