If you are flying into Orlando for your cruise, one of your biggest questions is usually how to get to the port.
Your options are nearly unlimited. It goes without saying that tourism is big business in Florida. If there is a need by even a handful of people, a business will pop-up to cater to them. To get from the airport to the cruise port you can take a cab, Uber, Lyft, cruise line shuttle, rent a car, and more.
That said, we’ve found the cheapest way to get to and from the port is an independent shuttle. Despite the ride being about an hour each way, the volume of people traveling to Port Canaveral from Orlando can make things cheap on a per-person basis.
Here are three shuttle companies that offer rides from the Orlando airport to Port Canaveral for the cheapest price we’ve seen — $40 roundtrip:
Cortrans Shuttle Service
Cortrans offers four trips a day between the airport and cruise port. You can ride one-way for $20 or go round-trip for $40. Of the 250+ reviews on TripAdvisor, Cortrans is rated 5 stars.
Travel Orlando Transportation
This shuttle service offers the same $40 rate for a round-trip ride to your cruise ship. The company offers up to 8 rides a day from the airport, so you won’t have to wait long. Travel Orlando Transportation doesn’t have any reviews on TripAdvisor, but of 7 reviews on Yelp, it has a rating of only 1.5 stars.
Port Canaveral Shuttle Connection
Port Canaveral Shuttle Connection has five departures a day from the Orlando airport and three departures from the cruise port back to Orlando. Round-trip fares run $40, in line with the two options listed above. We’ve searched for reviews of the service and found none on either TripAdvisor or Yelp.
