Port of Miami hotels with cruise shuttle
Miami is not only a fantastic location in itself, it is the starting point for many cruise adventures. Miami cruise port is the biggest in the world with plenty of modern facilities to ensure a smooth start and finish to every cruise adventure. The city itself has a wealth of attractions to offer from gorgeous beaches, including the iconic Miami Beach, and shopping opportunities to a world-class art and culture scene and an edgy nightlife.
As Miami is such a fantastic holiday destination in itself why don’t you combine your cruise with a few days in the city or a road trip across Florida? If doing this, we recommend that you choose Miami hotels with cruise port shuttle service and if you are arriving by car, long-term cruise parking. This is particularly ideal if you are using your own car for your holiday.
Our advice is to first select the hotel accommodation that meets your travel needs. Search by budget, size, amenities, and location and then organize your port transfers. You will find a good range of hotels near the Miami International Airport, in downtown Miami or in the Brickell area.
To help with your search we have put together a list of 19 hotels that either offer a port and terminal shuttle service or can arrange private transportation for you.
