Taxi from cruise terminal to airport

Can anyone tell me if there is a taxi stand at the cruise terminal? We will need to get to the airport after our cruise and the hotel shuttle seems expensive for such a short distance. How difficult will it be to find a taxi?

Thanks

There are always taxis right there. Especially if a cruise ship is coming in. What hotel shuttle are you talking about?

Depending on traffic a taxi will cost around $7 - $9.

I meant cruise shuttle....sorry. They are $37 EACH for a shuttle both ways. I think we will just take a taxi. So even at $12-15 for a cab ride, I will save about $50. I was just concerned that we would have touble finding a taxi at the terminal. I know going to the cruise terminal, from the airport, that we shouldn't have trouble finding a taxi. Thanks for the info. :)

Wow - that is a lot of money!

And, no problem. I live not too far from it and am that way frequently. There are always taxis. Dropping off and picking up if not just sitting there. It's also allowed to just wave for one here if you see one driving by.

If for some strange reason there isn't one just call

Good advice, but if you happen to be talking about Oct. 4 or Oct 5, allow a little extra time. There will be 3 ships in port each day and the pier area will be a mess! Thursday 10/4 will have 2 Holland America ships in port, plus the Sapphire Princess. Friday there will be the Sapphire Princess, Disney Wonder, and Celebrity Century. If it happens to be one of those days, taxis might be a little harder to find.

We will be trying to get from the cruise ship to the airport on Nov 23 and the time will be tight. How many ships in port that day?
