We are flying in on a Friday to Ft. Lauderdale for a cruise out of Miami on Saturday. Should we stay in Ft. Lauderdale on Friday night or Miami on Friday night? How should we get from Miami to Ft. Lauderdale-the quickest and least expensive way for my self, my husand and son? Is there a bus from the airport in Ft. Lauderdale to Miami and back? Should we take a taxi-rent a car? Please advise. Thanks, Lori
I'd recommend renting a car at the Ft Laud airport, and returning it in Miami. They have no drop charges for that. If you rent from Avis, they have an office right at the pier in Miami, then will shuttle you to the ship.
As for hotels.... just have to decide where you'd like to spend Friday night.. Miami or Ft Laud. Having a rental car, either would work fine.
