  1. Most shuttle companies will charge upwards of $20 pp each way from MCO. A few (Cortrans, etc) will pick you at your airport hotel. Cheapest, however, is taking the free hotel shuttle back to MCO then hop on the GoPort bus for $15 pp each way.
  2. How many people? One person versus 6 people make a difference! Back to a MCO Hotel or to just MCO?
  3. There are signs to a cell phone (waiting) lot next to the Seaman Center (across from terminal E). Also, short term parking is only $8 in the open lots or garages
  4. For Downtown you MUST book the correct destination/Drop Off AVIS – Book Port Of Miami Shuttle For Cruise Ships, Q8M Hertz – Book Miami – Port of Miami, 229 Southeast 2nd Street Budget – Book Port Miami Cruiseship Shuttle (P2F) All of this are clearly descibed here - Car Rental Drop Off at PortMiami
  5. Yes, but only a few have shuttles: Port of Miami Rental Car Drop Off locations with shuttles closest to the Port and Airport companies with shuttles: Downtown Miami – Hertz, Budget, Avis/Payless Miami International Airport Rental Car Center – National, Dollar, Thrifty You may see other rental car offices and companies near PortMiami or at the airport but those DO NOT provide shuttle services. If you book a car rental with any other company you have to arrange your own Port transfer.
  6. Yeah, to be safe I would ride to Overtown and Uber from there!
  7. "Metrorail parking is available to Transit customers only. You must board Metrorail or Metrobus to park at a Metrorail facility." Chances are no-one will care and it's hard to monitor, but it will worry me while on a cruise. Do not want to return to a "blocked & locked" vehicle after the cruise!
  8. Judged by the hordes of people at FLL lining up for the Carnival bus to PortMiami (at $32 pp!!!), your message is clearly not getting out!
  9. There is only one hotel miahotel.com at Concourse E (2nd Floor) at Miami Airport. Then you can use one of various shuttles or rideshare the next day to the Port. Otherwise, pick a hotel from any of these areas for easiest access to the Port - I suggest Downtown, A&E or Brickell instead of airport hotels. Do not worry about hotel transfers. Other transfer options are more convenient. Pick a hotel that suits your budget and needs, then pick transport.
  10. Most probably not near Downtown for under $300 on Feb 13!!! According to Miami Port Hotels! I would look for hotels along the way of your route and drive to the Port the next morning.
  11. Good question! I am normally in a hurry and want to get to the station ASAP so I haven't looked for a ticket kiosk inside the terminal or transportation info kiosks! Will check in the coming days when I'm back at FLL and will let u know!
  12. Just in case you want to stay with the cheapest option (Tri-Rail) despite the exta time, here is a complete description of the whole process with photos and such. It is really quite easy if your luggage is easy to handle. http://lets-see-america.com/fort-lauderdale-airport-fll-to-miami-airport-mia-tri-rail/
  13. I've done Tri-Rail to MIA many times. You get the free transfer bus at your arrival terminal to the Tri-rail station. 10 - 15 minutes depending on terminal Tri-Rail - 40-50 minutes At MIA you hop on the MIA-mover - 3-5 minutes to the terminal where you get the hotel shuttle
