Default jacksonville tranfers/rental car

We are catching the carnival out of jacksonville, any idea if its cheaper to take a cab then do the transfers with the ship?

Also has anyone got a rental car once off the cruise and were you able to get them to pick you up at the port?

thanks
cowgirl

The Carnival shuttle is $15 pp one way. I've heard a taxi is about $30 between the airport and the port. So it's about even for two people, but if you have three the taxi would be cheaper. There's two of us and I think we are leaning toward the taxi for convenience...........someone please let me know if this is not a good idea!

we took the taxi, and it was about 35, as we stopped at the convinient store for pop and wine.

it was better, they were all standing around loading on the shuttle and we were gone and in line at the cruise before them.
