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!
