Default Palm beach airport to Ft. Laud port?

I am trying to find the least expensive way to fly to Florida with our family for our April cruise. Airtran has a little lower fares if we fly into Palm Beach instead of FLL. Does anyone know how far or long of a drive it is to the Fort. Laud port from Palm beach airport? Or the cost of a shuttle (there are 6 of us). It may even out to just pay the extra $ to fly into FLL depending on the cost of transfers to the port.

Thanks!
Christie

Last time I went to the Caribbean we flew into FLL instead of MIA and I rented a towncar and driver to take us to the hotel. It was $50 back in the day but now I am sure it is more but to answer your question its about 50 miles to Ft Lauderdale from Palm Beach Airport so the cheapest way would be a shuttle. So call around and get prices and add that to your airline ticket and see if it would really be worth it and also think of the time spent. That is an hour each way, to me that isnt worth it, but I like to relax before my cruise and not have to travel too far.
