Tho the thought of a Towncar and riding in stytle is a nice. LOLHow many people are in your party? If there are a number of you, you just might want to look into that Town Car. The Carnival transfer is a per person rate; I think it's about $40 per person each way, and you have to wait around for the bus to fill up. Taxis, I've heard, are about a $70 fare (each way) to the port, but I'm not sure how many people (plus luggage) will fit in a taxi.
I've booked a limo for myself and my party of three other people. We're splurging. It was $299 + 20% gratuity round trip for up to eight people. The company I'm using also has non-limo Town Cars and minivans. Their price is $175 plus 20% gratuity round trip for either the town car or the minivan. The minivans hold 6 and the Town Cars hold up to 4. The company I'm using is www.cbctransportation.com. You can reserve online. There might be other companies that are less expensive, but that was the best pricing I found.
Other people suggest renting a car and driving yourself, but personally I'd rather not drive for an hour after flying all day. But if your flight isn't a long one, that's certainly an option, too.
Plus i found that it was nice to have the car, because we were able to run a couple of last minute errands in Cocoa Beach...ie the mall, Walmart to get the "little things we forgot" and the liquor store.
Have a great time,

I beg to differ on the one way transfer rule, my husband and I had originally booked with thrifty and they were showing a 10 dollar drop fee.
I am one month away from 25 and they wanted to charge us 50 dollars extra in underage fees
so I decided to go with Enterprise who is only charging us about $25 in underage fees, but there prices are so high to rent out of the port canaveral location, no matter which rental company you go through.
That makes for a grand total of $108 to rent, not thrilled but still better then the $140 in carnival transfers, in addition to the fact that our flight doesnt leave til 4pm on the day the cruise gets back, so we can drive around instead of sit at airport.
We had looked into transfer, shuttles, limos, town cars, you name it we researched it, and to rent a car for the few hours or over night if you are flying in the day before has always been the cheapest. And plus, with a rental car, you can make any stops that you may want along the way.

or, as another poster said you cld rent a cheap car from budget and go over to kennedy space center for a bit, then return car to budget office on astronaut blvd (1 mile from pier), and then you can take their complimentary shuttle to the pier.
PS Does anyone know exactly how much carnival charges from airport to port Canaveral
If you are traveling into the Sanford airport (SFB), usually through Allegiant Airline or the International charters, add about $30.00 to the figure from above.
If you notice the figures above reflect a much lower total than if you took the cruise provided transfers for about 4 people and above. Car service takes you directly to the boat and drop off and than will be back to the boat to pick you up immediately after you disembark. Many car service do a one way run also. Always ask if the company you are using is permitted at Port Canaveral as not all companies are and you will get one company that will take you over and another sub contracted to pick you up. Usually companies will state on their web page whether they are permitted at the port.
Disney ground transfer price eound trip is $69.00 per person, Caribbean is $64.00 and Carnival is $51.00.
