We are going on a cruise in a few months and will stay one night in Ft. Lauderdale before cruise. Want to leave car there if our hotel has a shuttle or if there parking at the cruise terminal we would probably go that route since we will be heading home right away. Any ideas?
I do know that the Ramada Inn offers this for free. Keep your car there until end of cruise and shuttle from hotel to port and shuttle from airport to hotel. I haven't stayed there as we changed our reservations to stay in Miami since we were porting out of Miami. But even with that they were only going to charge us to shuttle us to Port of Miami for 15.00. Pretty cheap.
