I agree. When I priced out all of my options a couple of years ago, the cheapest I could find was $78 plus tip. I think the Princess transfer is $19-20/pp.

If you don't want to use the Princess transfer, consider finding a shuttle that goes between MIA and FLL, and take a taxi from FLL to the port.

We found that for the 2 of us last December that renting a car at the Miami airport and dropping it off at FLL was the cheapest. We then took the free hotel shuttle from FLL to our hotel for the night. In the morning our hotel provided shuttle service to the port (for a fee).

If you are not flying in a day early and spending a night, possibly a taxi from FLL to the port after dropping off the rental car might still be a reasonable cost overall.

https://reservations.supershuttle.com/Default.aspx

SuperShuttle shared van MIA-Port Everglades: $56 for two people
SuperShuttle shared van MIA-FLL: $60 for 2 people (then add $15 taxi fare to port)
Private van same for either trip: $110

But if prices were reversed I would still strongly advise against an unnecessary visit to FLL as two major exit ramps are closed for construction. Was there to catch a Sunday 5:00 flight a few weeks ago and bottleneck to exit airport was horrendous. Don't want to contemplate a Saturday or Sunday midday in January with eight ships in port.

Debarking is a cruel procedure done to dogs.
Upgrades, Upsellls and Move Over Offers are completely different things.
As are being denied boarding and being disembarked early.
And don't get me started on Port Charges vs. Government Taxes, Fees, and Port Expenses.
The Jones Act is for cargo. The PVSA is "that terrible law" that restricts USA domestic sailings. But without which there would likely be no cruise ships with casinos, duty free shops, and international crew members willing to work fantastically hard every single day.
Lots of people fly in the morning of the cruise and catch crazy early flights home. Why ask us if you can? Just to be harassed by the regulars?
No hotels have free shuttles, free breakfast, free wifi, or free parking. You pay in the rate. And could have found a better deal paying by the piece.
And don't forget: the cruise line is in complete control of the weather, political unrest, medical emergencies, and anything else that delays or re-routes your cruise. Be sure to demand compensation as it is you and only you who were affected.

SAS does not provide service from MIA to Port Everglades. SAS can only do roundtrip travel between Miami and Ft. Lauderdale with the service begining in Ft. Lauderdale.

Close...SAS can pick up in Miami if the trip ends in Ft. Lauderdale. They do not service the Miami Airport.

American Shuttle, the vendor at the airport, charges $37 for the first passenger and $28 each additional passenger to get to Port Everglades. No need to make reservations. Just locate the American Shuttle Desk outside of bag claim.

Thanks for the clarification. At least I was in the ballpark.

$48 for two passengers going from the MIA airport to Port Everglades? Or going from MIA to the port of Miami?

Going to Port Everglades that is a great deal -- book it now.

Going to POM that is a bad deal -- a taxi will cost $24+tip (flat rate fare for the cab, not per person) and the trip takes about 15 minutes.

Good luck!

Hundreds, maybe 1000s replies on other forums here. Do a search top this page.-"Search Cruise Critic'. Mia airport- FT Lauderdale port transfers. Much uninformed info just above.

^ Plus this thread is over 3 years old and info is outdated.

Although kudos for using the search function to find it.
