Best way to get from Orlando Airport to Port Canaveral

Hello, we are taking our first cruise this fall & needs to know the best & cheapest way to get from from Orlando airport to Port Canaveral. Can anyone who has taken a Royal Caribbean cruise recently within the past couple of months tell me how much the tranfers the cruise line offers cost? Any suggestions are appreciated thanks in advance.

I would love to see the same answer from anyone who can help. We are taking a Royal Caribbean Freedom ship and are arriving on Saturday before the Sunday deportation. Thanks

This best direct way if you are driving is heading out of the Orlando airport you will head east on 528 to Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach. It is direct and will take you straight to the port exit you will see the cruise ships and signs . Also you will have three tolls. I believe all tolls are a dollar each. Driving time 35 minutes

I believe it takes a bit longer then 35 min to get from the airport to the port...more like 45 min to one hour. The Royal Caribbean cruise shuttle cost around $35 per person each way (not sure). I just recommended a company called startrans in a similar post. You can see their rates here - https:/…port_canaveral_transportation.html

Also visit cruisecritic.com... you will find so many similar posts and reviews. Or go to portcanaveral.com/cruising/groundtransport.p… and choose a company from the list of trnsportation companies permitted by the port authority. Private transfer will cost you around $100 each way.

Yes, I drive that all the time, including yesterday, and my fastest time is about 45 minutes from the airport via the Beachline Expressway (SR528). There are tolls on the route, adding a few extra minutes if you pay cash (two $1 tolls). It is, however, an easy drive, usually with little traffic.

The rental car companies that have offices near the port are: Avis, Budget, Dollar/Thrifty, Enterprise/Alamo, Hertz, and Payless. Cost is usually $50-60 for the trip, sometimes even less.

Shared shuttles are usually around $30-35 per person single, and there are dozens of companies operating on that route. NeelH gives good advice about checking at CruiseCritic.com or the port's own website, as there are a variety of opinions. You should also search TA, as this is a common question.

Hi I recently took a shuttle service to get to and from the Port at Cape Canaveral and the service was exceptional. The shuttle took about 30 minutes and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It is called Smart-two.com. Please check it out. It seems to be a fairly new shuttle service with brand new shuttle buses. The driver was very professional and friendly. They even offered us a bottle of complimentary water on our short trip. The shuttle was awesome and it was even equipped with free wifi and docking stations to charge my devices. My husband and I were thoroughly impressed, especially with the reliable service. The driver was there waiting on us and on our return trip to the airport we were there ahead of time. Thomas, our driver, was so precious.
