Shuttle service

Have you ever booked the cruise line shuttle service to get you to the airport after your cruise, or do you prefer to arrange your own shuttle/taxi/Uber ride?

We have always had a land vacation post cruise, but next March we will be coming home the day our 2nd cruise ends. We booked the Carnival shuttle to get us back to the Fort Lauderdale airport from Miami because it's going to be convenient, but we will likely have several hours to just hang out in the airport.

On our first cruise we did because the flight was shortly after we docked, so it was easier for us to do that, Since then we have always stayed a few extra days.

We've used the Carnival shuttle before and it was fine. I prefer not having to wait for the shuttle to fill before leaving, so the last few times we've used private car/van.

I hadn't thought about it earlier, but we can book an excursion and then get dropped off at the airport. It's something to consider to put in some time and extend our fun.

Have done so for years. Only way to go. But it has evolved. We used to have to sit on a coach with complainers waiting for others to show. Which really wasn't that bad. But now they normally put you into a limo and take you there right afterward. So nice to have someone waiting there with a sign just meant for you, and when your bags get lost they doing all the work of finding them, saving you from the anxiety.

Remember the thread when I was killing time in Ft. Lauderdale .... lots of good suggestions there too

We use the shuttle going to the airport. So much easier for us.

they load and unload the luggage for you. And just sit back and enjoy the ride in comfort. We don't mind waiting for the bus to fill up. Doesn't seem to take too long.

How easy is it to get around FLL air port?

We have used the hired shuttle, taxi cruise shuttle and post cruise tour/shuttle. It now depends on what time our flight is scheduled. If, it is close to noon, we take a taxi so we get to the airport in time for some lunch before the flight... if it is late afternoon or early evening, we take a tour/shuttle so we don't have to spend so much time waiting in the airport. We have had some wonderful post cruise tours. It also depends if we are part of a group or not.

Yes we do and we also book our own transfers as well. It just depends on the price difference.
