No issues getting to the ship, as long as you go to the designated pick-up spot. There are signs everywhere to direct you.

Disembarking is another thing. We waited for our Lyft driver while there were tons of cabs waiting. We could have been at the airport and checked in by the time our ride showed up.

I take Uber to the port, and a taxi on disembarkation day.  Tried Uber on disembarkation day once, and ended up waiting longer that just getting a cab.

We had Uber pick us up at our hotel to take us to the port.  The driver actually told us he almost cancelled because it’s such a hassle to take people there.  They also have to purchase a port access sticker or they won’t be let in.  I have read complaints where some Ubers have been refused entry because they don’t have one.  The port officer did check and also wanted to see all our documents and passports.  As the others said, there is no sense requesting an Uber when there are plenty of taxis waiting when you disembark.


In December we took the hotel shuttle.  (Renaissance Cruiseport)  The van was waved right on through in a special lane. No waiting.  Kind of like an HOV or E-Zpass lane.  The driver said it was because he is the one with the responsibility to check his passengers are valid.  It was the fastest and the easiest trip to the port I have ever had.
