Use another company!
Their rates are:
1 Person $30.00 2 People $50.00 3 People $60.00 4 People $70.00 5 People $80.00 6 People $90.00 7 People $95.00 8 People $100.00
And lap infants are free.
As we have 4 people plus baby, this is the cheapest that I've found for that number of people.
This is from Orlando Airport to the Port or any hotels in the Port area.
As I was thinking of staying at a hotel, I asked how much it would be from hotel to the Port and was quoted $4 per person.
I do not know anything about them - does anyone else had any experience with them ?
Search the New I work in Port Canaveral part of this site
for reputable companies.
We were going to take the Carnival bus back after the cruise but thinking of rental a car back so we don't have to set at the cruise terminal or airport for hours and hours.

We choose shuttle services rather than rent a car (pain in the butt) or those darn buses at the airport (feel like cattle being herded). Our 3rd time we went with a shuttle service you listed (port canaveral cruise shuttleS) only 3 words; never ever again. Horrible service and for what? to save $5 or $10 ea.? A big fat NO to them for sure. A friend told us that Cocoa Bch shuttle was ok, so we tried them on our 4th cruise and it was so-so. We didn't like the waiting though (we sat in the shuttle for 36 mins. before the shuttle left for the airport....NOT fun). Our 5th cruise was where we finally figured out the best way to go. We tried PortCanaveralShuttleService.com and they were very good (surprisingly good). Their price was low but the service was excellent (on time, very clean shuttle, uniformed driver, nice office staff and very easy to make reservations with.) Now we know better for our 6th cruise and we are so much looking forward to it (we are cruise fanatics). Hope this helps you avoid the pitfalls. Have a great cruise! Maybe we'll see you there!

After the seven-day cruise, we rented a car with Dollar again (literally just before disembarking at Port Canaveral at 9:30 am because yes, we forgot to rent one for the return to MCO). We had a late departure of 9:00 pm to fly back home, so the rental was great! The shuttle bus picked us up and we rode for about 20 minutes. Upon getting the car, we headed to Cocoa Beach and then Downtown Disney (with a stop for late lunch before heading to the airport around 7 pm.
We would rent a car again if embarking at Port Canaveral.
I echo this sentiment. We sailed RCCL Freedom last year, and rented a car from MCO to the port, and then did another rental at the end of the cruise back to MCO. I paid about $110.00 in TOTAL. That includes the rental, tolls, and gas. For four of us, way less expensive than any transportation I could find. It was an easy drive. I love the freedom renting my own wheels gives me. We swung in to Target to pick up some last minute things we needed, we grabbed a bite for dinner then stayed at the Country Inn and Suites. Turned our rental in next door to them (I think it was Hertz we used on the way to the port) and grabbed their shuttle to the ship the next morning. Then, when we got back, I had rented from another company, can't recall which one, there are several close to the port, and took their shuttle from the port to their building and got another rental back to the air port. We had a very late flight, so it was nice to be able to do some shopping, go to dinner, and not have to sit in the airport all day. I rented one day rentals from two different companies because I had two different coupon vouchers for deals. They are easy to get, you can even find coupon codes online and book online. Easy. If you are someone who doesn't want to have to be bothered to rent a car, drive yourself to the port and figure out all the details, this won't be your cup of tea. But, if you are like me, and want to have control over what you do and when you do it, and don't mind the details, renting a car is the way to go. It really couldn't be any easier to do.
