We reserved Marriott Marina With Princess for $129.00 per night for 2 nights. Tax came to $7.70 per night. Total for 2 nights $273.40,including transfers from Miami airport to hotel 2 nights prior to departure. If I calculate super shuttle or taxi service from miami international to Marriott Marina in Fort Lauderdale we would pay at least $60.00. If I read correctly, this hotel on priceline sells for $60.00-$80.00 per night plus tax and service fees of about $15.00 extra per night. If you total these costs do you think Princess provides better value and convenience then priceline?

If the total is $129/night for two people it doesn't sound like a bad deal, but beware that Princess usually quotes their pre and post cruise package rates per person. Just make sure the $129/night covers the both of you and that it is not double that for two.

I didn't realize Princess was using Marriott Mariana. I thought they were using Marriott North. I would also double check the prices - Princess quotes prices per person double occupancy.

Glad to see them using another hotel close to the port.

no mistake, I have seen my statement. 129 for 2 people per night. Marriott Marina was being used for this particular weekend.

Was the $129 with tax included? If not, you would then be paying $49-69 for transfers. I don't know how far the hotel is from the ship pier though.

Actually, at a PL rate of 80(high estimate) X 2 = 160 plus tax $25? = 185 ttl vs 258. You'd be paying around $78 for transfers.
