The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport continues to grow in popularity. Miami's airport (MIA) has grown so large that it has lost the feel of a vacation destination, according to some. While there is a major revamping of the airport area underway, The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is a viable option.
Getting from FLL to the Port
of Miami requires some distance to be traveled. Cabs can be a costly choice. While taxis are available, there are also a variety of shuttle services available.
Options for getting to your cruise include transportation provided by hotels, taxi or cab, mass transit and private limo.
Obviously when dealing with hotel tranportation, they can get you from FLL and then possibly to the Port of Miami with their shuttle. You should simply talk to the hotel in advance and ask. Find out what policies they have and what is expected. This includes how much warning you have to give them or if they have a regular schedule. Most of them are used to dealing with people joining cruises so can also educate you as to other options as well. Ask about tipping policies, etc. as well to avoid confusion. It is better to know what is expected than accidentally insult someone.
There are a variety of taxi or cab services located in South Florida. Any of these companies are more than happy to accommodate your needs for transportation to your cruise line. They are all familiar with the area and certainly with drop off procedures.
While mass transit in South Florida isn't the best of anywhere in the world, the entrance is not far from rail and bus lines. FLL is in Broward County. Miami is in Miami-Dade. So going to your cruise ship may require shifting from one bus company to another.
There is also the Super Shuttle and other private companies proud to assist you. Consult the personnel at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. They have some of the best rated personnel and are more than happy to assist you.
You should consult the county governments sites for mass transit information. You should also note that carrying luggage on such forms of transit are terribly inconvenient.
