Hotel Recommendation

We're flying to JAX airport on Wed, night to leave for cruise Thursday noon, so need to stay at a hotel that will provide a shuttle from the airport and then also on to the Pier to leave on our Carnival cruise the next day. Would appreciate some suggestions please. Thank you.

These answers are from other Tripadvisor members who asked about this. Right above your original post in a green bar is a search feature. It says, "Search in Jacksonville Forums for...". You can enter 'cruise shuttle' and then you will have the opportunity to sort by relevance (which is the default setting) or date. I usually choose date to get the most current info. You'll likely find quite a bit of useful info there.

1. "We have been researching this same question for a possible December cruise out of Jax. So far we've found three hotels near the airport that have cruise-park packages: Fairfield Inn, 1300 Airport Rd,; Hilton Garden Inn, 13503 Ranch Rd.; and Hampton Inn, 13551 Airport Ct."

2. "Try the Holiday Inn Express at Blount Island. It is half a mile from the cruise terminal. You can even leave your car there. They have shuttles that drop you off at the cruise port an airport as well!!"

I would probably opt for the Hilton Garden, The Hampton or the Holiday Inn. But your search may uncover further opportunities.

If you have not done so already, you may find it helpful to check Tripadvisor's partner site, www.cruisecritic.com. There is a 'roll call' area where you can find your ship and cruise date, and then check out what your other cruisers are discussing. Undoubtedly some of them will have this same question and probably quite a few answers.

Have a great time!
