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??

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.
