Default Transport from Miami International Airport to Fort Lauderdale

Dear All,

Me and my boyfriend are going to our first cruise in Caribbean on Oasis of the Seas.
We originally are from Riga, Latvia (Europe) and all related to US is new and unknown to us.
I was trying to search on internet about transport from Airport to Fort Lauderdale. All I find is taxi or private van which all cost 120 $ or more. Is there a cheaper way to get to the pier?
Please share your experience how do you travel?

We will arrive to Miami on 16.01.2015. and join Oasis of the Seas on 17.01.2015.

Thank you in advance,

Liga

Have you thought about flying into Ft. Lauderdale. It's just a short taxi ride from that airport to the pier. Plenty of hotels close to the pier also. I would look into that option. The Oasis is a beautiful ship. I'm sure you will enjoy all that she has to offer.

Thanks for reply. Flying to Lauderdale is a bit pricy - around 1350 USD per person. Flying to Miami airport we can save around 250$ per person.
I found that there is railway connection, has anybody traveled with it?

As I understand ticket cost not more that 5$ per person. Tri rail http://www.tri-rail.com/train-schedu...012_Edited.pdf

It looks like both options are pretty good. I guess it would come down to the price. Which is less expensive.

I have used Black Pearl Limo service. Including tip it is $100 each way for a town car. You have the shuttle option and the train, if you prefer to be on your own schedule this is a limo service that we have used at least for 8 trips either traveling from FLL to South Beach or from MIA to Port Everglades or to a hotel in the FLL area.
