Ft Lauderdale, how to get to Miami?

Recommended Posts

Planning a cruise from Miami, but flying in from Sweden to FLL (since Norwegian is flying that route direct).


Will it be easy to get from FLL to Miami? (2 nights at a not yet booked hotel prior to the cruise). There will be either 4 or 6 of us.

Taxi would be easiest, figure $60 - $80 per cab and you may need 2.  If you have a working data plan, you can also use Uber and get an XL or 2 X's.  Uber would be cheaper.


Norwegian has been dumping some of the direct flights, glad you can still get one.  They stopped our Copenhagen direct flights which sucks.

We're doing it the opposite way round. Our cruise sails from Fort Lauderdale but we're flying into Miami because we can get a non-stop flight from Lisbon.

We usually book a car service. It's a bit more expensive but it's really nice to have someone waiting for us when we get off that long trans-Atlantic flight.

I can recommend Larry's Limos but there are others which are also often mentioned here on the boards. You just need to take a look at their websites and see which suits your needs best.

Be very careful about using Uber or Lyft because of the issue of data. Last year, when we sailed from and stayed in Miami I decided to try Uber for the first time and while the service itself worked fine I got hammered for data charges.

Since you will likely be arriving later in the afternoon most of the popular shared shuttles will not be available or cost effective.  For 6 you might check out private transportation from Go Airport or Larry's Limos.

We use SAS Transportation, $15 per person


SAS was great, but we landed after 3 PM and the rate was $75.
