We chose this hotel the day before we embarked on our cruise. The hotel shuttle from the airport was relatively easy to find after asking two people at the airport for some direction. There's a Winn Dixie walking distance from the hotel, so you're able to pick up last minute items pre-cruise. There's also an alcohol store if you want to buy bottles for your stateroom. The hotel arranged a port shuttle for the following day for $8 pp. Aside from wreaking of smoke in a non-smoking room, we have no complaints.
