We are dropping off our rental car at Budget and letting them shuttle us to the port. I was thinking of having my husband drop us off with the luggage and then having him come back on his own, but I don't like the thought of the "eternal" wait with the kids without him. On the other hand, I'm concerned about having them shuttle all of us and our 8 pieces of luggage. Does anyone else have experience with this and what is your suggestion. Thanks.

how about dropping the bags off (keep your ID & docs etc) and then go return the car. The bags will be on the way to the room(hopefully) that much quicker & it will be easier to put you all in the shuttle van back to the port without bags.

We just returned last weekend from our Mariner cruise. We used Budget. Our family of four got to Budget at 11:00 AM on Sunday morning, hopped on their 15 passenger van (only ones on the van) and our 8 pieces of luggage and arrived at the port in five minutes. It was not a problem at all. I think it would be more of a headache going back and forth between the pier and Budget.
