When you are going on your first cruise, it can be a little overwhelming trying to plan all of the small details of your trip. One of the details that often falls through the cracks is this: planning transportation from the airport to the cruise port, and then back again when the trip is over. This article is going to help you explore your options for transfers.
1. Cruise Ship Transportation
Many cruise lines offer buses and shuttles from the airport to the cruise port. These prices usually range from $20-$40 each way. The nice thing about booking through the cruise ship is the fact that you know you will get to the right cruise in time. You don’t want to miss the boat!
2. Private Shuttles
There are private companies that can be booked through the airport that offer shuttles to the cruise ports. These shuttles vary in price, and you will need to check their schedule ahead of time to be sure that you will get to the cruise ship in time.
You can always find a taxi at the airport, and this is a great option to get you where you need to go. Before you get in the taxi, make sure to negotiate a price so that you don’t spend too much on the trip.
4. Private Car Services
There are many private car services that will drive you where you need to go. These services can sometimes be cheaper than taking a taxi, and the cars are much nicer. Ask around at the airport (or look online ahead of time) to find a good reliable car service that can drive you to the port
All of these transportation options are good choices, they will get you where you need to go. But, make sure that you schedule a little bit of extra time to be sure that you aren’t late… because the cruise ship won’t wait!
