30 plus years cruising from Miami, I have never paid a fare to the port. Where we live 4hrs away, we go down the day before. Always stay at the La Quinta on LeJeune. Flying in, they will pick you up at the airport. Cruise day, they take you to the port. Once at the hotel, they have a company that picks you up at the port and takes you to the airport or back to the hotel. Where we drive in, we park our car for free. The fee back is like $20.
