Default Taxi from South Beach to Fort Lauderdale

Hi,

We're due to sail on the Star on the 23rd October (sooooo excited). Anyway, we're staying for a couple of nights prior to the Cruise on South Beach (hopefully to help recover from the jet lag)!! and was wondering if anybody has any idea how much a cab would be from South Beach to the port at Fort Lauderdale??

Thanks
Debs

Taxi would be $75 - 80. You'd be much better off renting a car and driving to Ft Laud.
There's no extra drop off charges for the rental within Florida.

Hi Debs!

We have done the same as you in the past before our cruises. Spend a few days enjoying the sights of South Beach--it is definitely a different world there--I know you will really enjoy it! When we have done this in the past, we have arranged with a limousine service to pick us up at our hotel and deliver us the the pier. It cost us around $80 + tip on our last trip to go from Miami to Ft. Lauderdale for all six of us. Considering the exchange rate, it would cost you a bit less. You get really GREAT service from the limousine drivers--they know right where to go and are really helpful. Our drivers handled absolutely everything and got our luggage right through with the porters, etc. We didn't have to do a thing. Do a search for Miami Florida Limousines and you'll get many choices and prices to choose from. Hope this helps--just another option.

Enjoy your trip--happy sailing!!!
