Default Hotel w/shuttle in Ft. Lauderdale

We are going on a cruise in a few months and will stay one night in Ft. Lauderdale before cruise. Want to leave car there if our hotel has a shuttle or if there parking at the cruise terminal we would probably go that route since we will be heading home right away. Any ideas?

I do know that the Ramada Inn offers this for free. Keep your car there until end of cruise and shuttle from hotel to port and shuttle from airport to hotel. I haven't stayed there as we changed our reservations to stay in Miami since we were porting out of Miami. But even with that they were only going to charge us to shuttle us to Port of Miami for 15.00. Pretty cheap.

I think the Hampton Inn near the Airport has a shuttle from the airport to the hotel, and a shuttle from the hotel to the port.

Default Taxi fares in Fort Lauderdale

Taxi Fares in Fort Lauderdale as of July 2008

All information is based on current availible web-sites and google maps.
Your cost may vary depending on all varible circumstances with traffic and street routes traveled.

Fuel Surcharge Add $1.00 per passenger, fees for metered fares are as follows: $4.50 for the first 1/6 mile, (includes the $2.00 airport origination fee) and $.40 each additional 1/6 mile which equals $6.90 for the first mile and $2.40 for each additional mile. Waiting time is $.40 per minute. Make sure the taxi driver does not set the meter to include the airport origination if your cruising around town.

The Sun Trolley for cruising around Port Everglades. They stop at Shopping Centers, Restaurants, Day Spa's, Bars.
Just wave to the Sun Trolley driver, they will stop for you, $1.25 per person per ride or day pass $3.25

Note: The private shuttle vans at Port Everglades charge approximatly the same as taxi's, avoid them, you'll wait while they fill the entire van and load everybodys luggage, same when they unload, if your luggage is buried in the back of the shuttle van, you'll wait again for them to retrive your bags.
If your flight is in the last terminal, you'll wait again while they drop off everybody at the closer terminals.
