Ground transportation from FLL Cruise port to downtown Miami?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a recommendation, please? :confused: :)


We're doing a b2b, of sorts, disembarking Enchantment in FLL on a Saturday in October, staying overnight in Miami (downtown - Intercontinental Hotel) and boarding Freedom on Sunday.


Can't seem to find a reasonably priced way to do this other than walking. :eek:

I would look into a rental car. I know Enterprise offers a free shuttle from the Miami Hyatt 400 SE 2nd Ave to the port and I would think there would be a free shuttle in FLL to get you to their location there. Compact cars start at about $30 for the day, and you would then have a car to get around while in Miami for the night.


BTW We are staying at the Intercontinental April 2007, best rate I got was $150 per night, and I would think you could do better in Oct.


Happy Cruising

Thank you all SO much!


signman - LOL! Yes, we used Priceline and "scored" the IC for $86! :D (You were right, WrenchHeadCruiser... October is cheaper.)

And it looks like now we'll be relocating that savings to cabbies, van drivers and/or a rental car company. :o


Oh and btw, my husband called C&A today for additional advice and they said that if we were doing a traditional B2B (same port) we'd have been eligible for free transportation and a FREE hotel room!


Unfortunately, they don't have a transfer available from the pier in Ft. Lauderdale to downtown Miami. We also complicated matters by booking only one of the two directly with RCCL. (A TA was offering $150 casino credit for us to switch our 2nd reservation and BOY will that come in handy, lol.)


Anyway, thank you all again! Very helpful!

Oops! Forgot to say which way we're leaning...


My DH's assignment today was to compare rates between Enterprise (thanks again, Wrench) and the FLL airport-shuttle-DT Mia option (thanks signman). And Bequia - thanks for the all-inclusive list of options!
