For many airlines, flying into Miami International Airport gives cruisers more options than flying into Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Often, additional options mean cheaper flights.
There is a very economical option for those of you flying into Miami, with a Fort Lauderdale cruise (or stay). It is South Florida’s Tri-Rail system, and you can get to it with a FREE Shuttle from Miami Airport. The bus terminal is located on level one (same as baggage claim), across the street from the terminal, in between the Dolphin and Flamingo Parking Garages.
Once there, you can purchase your ticket before boarding the shuttle, or you may purchase tickets once you arrive at the Tri-Rail Station. Prices are UNDER $5 per person. Take the train to the Fort Lauderdale Airport station, and then it is a very short cab ride into Port Everglades, or a local Fort Lauderdale hotel! For Tri-Rail’s website, click HERE.
