Default Miami Hotels w/ Shuttles to the Port

Can all you "experienced" cruises help me out. I hate taxis and was wondering if you can tell me some hotels in Miami the have Shuttles to the Port. We are spending the night prior to our Cruise. Airport Shuttles would be nice too.

Any information is greatly appreaciated.

Hi Amanda,
What hotel are you at? We stayed at the Radisson last year and just took a taxi to the pier, it was very close and easy to get a cab. We did notice a lot of hotels didn't have a shuttle service.

We haven't booked a hotel yet. I am still searching for hotels with shuttles. There will be 6 adults and I thought a shuttle would be easier for all of us, instead off trying to get three taxi's. The other 4 adults with us have never been on a Cruise or to Miami, so I am trying to make things as smooth as possible.

Careful with Hotel transfers! Some hotels (when you ask) will say yes they have a shuttle service when infact they just call a car service who gets a cut for the refer. When I'm in the Ft. Laud / Miami I use BC's Express who has been very resonable and the most reliable in the area. BC is the only transfer service I'll use! ( I'll be cruising on Costa Mediterrania on 4/3 and BC is who I'll be using. Give them a try you will not be dissapointed! BC@BCsExpress.com or by phone at 954-873-8383.

I would look into a shuttle service ... My family of 5 will be staying at the Hampton Inn and Suites Airport Blue Lagoon Miami ... Then having SuperShuttle pick us up at the hotel and take us directly to the port ... for the five of us, all adults with 7 pieces of luggage, the cost is $50 ..

Embassy Suites at Miami International has a cruise package that includes transportation for all the adults that are booked in a suite, and charges $10.00 per child. It is a one-way shuttle so if you stay with them the night prior to your cruise and book this package they will transport you to the port the next day or vice versa if you're staying with them the night you return from the cruise.

Candy's arrangement above sounds like a deal for that amount of people and luggage.

Thanks for all the information. I Booked the Holiday Inn - Port of Miami and we decided to rent a car from Alamo and they will tranfer the 6 of us and our luggage to the Port the Miami the morning we return our car. We will see how this works for us.
