Default west palm beach hotels/transfers to Port everglades

We're leaving on 2/5 from port everglades, but we're flying into west palm beach the day before we embark. Any suggestions on hotels or ways to get to the ship from west palm beach?
Thanks in advance for your help!

I have a great idea for you... My family and I did the same exact thing by flying into PBI.

Rent a car with Budget Rental and make sure you book with a return NOT at the airport but at their off site facility in the Quay Shopping Plaza . Its near the Embassy Suites hotel. They will also shuttle you to the pier for FREE. Hope it all works out for you.

Jeff, thanks so much! Can you rent a car at the off site facility when we debark?

I believe you can rent a car for your return trip as well. Just remember, this is a small off site facility that gets really busy on the weekends. I recommend that you return your car early in the day so you have ample time to get to the ship on your departure.


I dont know when your return flight time is, but we just forked over i believe $80 for a limo driver. DONT hire someone ahead of time, they will overcharge you.....Many drivers are there at the pier and you can probably make a better deal.


Enjoy yourselves.
Jeff
