Transport Downtown Miami by Port to Ft Lauderdale airport

Hi everyone! I'm going on my first cruise out of Miami, but my airfare is much better into Ft. Lauderdale. Consequently, I'm flying into FLL the day before, staying in a hotel in Miami for the night, and then going to the Port of Miami in August 2013.

I found cheap transportation I can get from FLL to a Miami hotel with a shuttle for 2 people for $45 total. However the return to the airport is what i need help with.

-Our return flight is in the evening so we need a ride from around the port of miami or biscayne blvd to FLL. That above shuttle I found is not available after 1pm. So is a 2nd shuttle co.

A 3rd shuttle company looks to cost $84 for 2 people from Biscayne Blvd to FLL airport per online quote. That is more than we wish to pay and it didn't specify time- but the company appears to run 24 hrs. (?) Not sure if there is a catch.

-Any recommendations for late afternoon/early evening pick-up time from downtown Miami to FLL airport?

-Any other cheaper shuttles or other cheap transportation ideas?

As for transportation, we would be open to public transportation... I don't know the route of the Metromovers ... and I found this from an old thread which is similar from 2011:


Also, any hotels in Miami have a shuttle that goes all the way to FLL airport and/or from the -more importantly - miami to the FLL airport? It seems most go more to the Miami airport, not Ft. Lauderdale airport.

Any idea on taxi cost?

Do most Miami hotels offer a free shuttle to the cruise port? Thanks for your help!
