HI. To save a few $$$ it was suggested that we fly into Ft Lauderdale and "shuttle" to the port in Miami. Carninval will provide the transfer for $16/$32 round trip. Has anyone else done this or similar?
Also, on return, we need to get from Miami port and eventually (next day) get to Ft. Lauderdale airport. We have a free day-almost 2 actually.
so...1. Is there anywhere to rent a car near the Miami port?
2. With 2 kids (11 & 15) any suggestions on what to do in Miami or Ft Lauderdale?
cthrn27, we will be taking a taxi from the port to Budget rental, about 2-3 miles, its located inside Sheraton Brickell Hotel. I just read that Thrify car rental has a shuttle and will p/u at the port.
Things to do: there's Seaquarium in Miami, also if you haven't done any dolphin swims, there's a couple of facilities going towards South Florida, not a far drive. Hope this helps.
