Port of Miami

Recommended Posts



Be sure to double check that they are still offering the free shuttle to the port. The other thing is you might want to compare prices between the pre-cruise package and just booking a room. Sometimes it is actually cheaper to take a taxi and have a regular room night, get breakfast somewhere nearby than to buy the pre-cruise package.

mizzoumom1111 - Welcome to Cruise Critic!

I am sailing out of Miami on October and have done a bit of research. There are some hotels that offer free shuttles. It seems like the "free shuttle" is built into the hotel rate. After looking at the hotel map on a popular hotel search site, I chose the one closest to the port - Holiday Inn Port of Miami-Downtown. I think the taxi should be cheap from there, compared to other locations.

There is quite a bunch of information on the Florida Departures board. You can actually do a search for "miami" and it will bring up all the Miami related threads. Good luck planning!:D

Personally I would not book a hotel just for the shuttle, free or for-fee. Think of it: a hotel offers a shuttle service and that is all they would be doing all weekend long. You might have to wait a very long time, depending on the type of shuttle bus they use. Book a room in a hotel that appeals to you and just pay for a cab or Uber to the Port of Miami. :)
