Default Orlando to Cape Canaveral

Can anyone suggest a reliable mode of transportation to get from the Orlando airport to Cape Canaveral? We are willing to come in a day before our cruise if there is a hotel in Cape Canaveral that will pick us up from the airport.
Thanks
Neal

There are no hotels in Cocoa Beach that will pick you up.

Some options:

You can buy rt transfers from your cruise line, then get a hotel by the airport for the night, have them shuttle you back to the airport in the morning, catching the shuttle as if you just flew in.

Last year we used the Cocoa Beach Shuttle to take us to the Radisson at the Port and they shuttled us to the ship the next morning. We were very pleased with the service. TIP: If you do this, call a couple days before you arrive and put your name on the shuttle list, it fills up fast!

This year we are flying in 2 days early, renting a car from Budget, staying at the Hampton Inn, less crowded and includes breakfast (I grew up in Merritt Island and want to look around) and dropping it off the morning of the cruise right next to the port. They will shuttle you to the ship. One day rental is about the same as a transfer. They will pick us up after the cruise and we are renting a car to take back to Orlando for 1 day UNLESS anyone knows if the Mariner sells one way airport transfers at the end of the cruise. I hope this makes sense cause it's only 6 weeks away and I am very excited!!

I used Legacy Limo service and was very happy with them. We're a family of 6 and it was cheaper for us to rent private transporation than it was for the RCI shuttle. Others have mentioned using Art's Shuttle and Mears. I haven't had any experience with Art's but did use Mears to get from the airport to Disney and they were fine for that.

Yes, you can get airport shuttle vouchers on the ship to get back to the airport
the end of your trip. We did that 2 weeks ago and it worked out fine. It is $18 or
$19pp.

LeeleeBear,
Thanks for the info. Same price I would have to pay for a rental but less hassle.
