From the Casablanca to Rabat you can take a train from the station Casa Port and take you to Rabat (Rabat Ville) in about 1 hour
https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=B...a=ltm&t=m&z=16

A ticket costs 35 Dh (4,5 $ ) one-way, second class.
You can check the timetable in advance http://www.oncf.ma/PrixEtReservation...tsNormaux.aspx

I hope that helps

I've been to the Casablanca port many times, also on MSC ships. Since I've done all the excursions (except Marrakech) I usually remain on board. When I go somewhere where I've never been I prefer the ship's tour because I want to hear what the guide has to say. Friends took a taxi to Rabat last year and were very satisfied. Morocco is still an easy going country but if it's your first visit, then go with your ship's excursion.

I'm going there in about a week with Ncl. I booked a private excursion from Casablanca to Rabat with under Moroccan sun. I haven't gone yet, but he has really good reviews online and has been really responsive to my MANY emails and questions. His prices are also very reasonable.
