Maybe $80 if there isn't too much traffic.

Primetime Shuttle is $16 per person. Best to prebook so you don't have to wait at the airport.

I think $80 may be a little high, but it's at least $65. Primetime or Supershuttle would be the most cost effective for two or less. For 3 or more, you could probably reserve a private transfer at less cost per person.

You may want to post this same question at boards.cruisecritic.com as there are frequent cruisers who may have recently paid this fare.

The big problem with Taxis is that they are based on the "meter", which is a combination of the mileage, plus something called "Wait Time", which can be added on in heavy traffic, or just stuck at a Red Light. Also, a few Taxi Drivers tend to not always take the shortest/cheapest route.

I don't like Taxis for longer distances, I prefer to arrange a private hire vehicle, which will quote you a flat fee to go from point A to Point B. Or take a shared Shuttle Van if you want to save a few dollars.
