It is $67 for a cab before the tip. They have metered rates. The problem is the cab won't hold luggage for 4 people in most cases so you'd need two taxis. No, they won't discuss the rate.
It depends on the amount of luggage and the size of the taxi they are using. If they have Ford Crown Victorias, Lincoln Town Cars or Grand Caravan Mini Vans than it could work. Any smaller vehicle would be a streach.
I remember on my first cruise I flew from Toronto to FLL on a charter flight. I had purchased the cruise transfers from the travel agent, so I went to their representative at the airport. There were 4 of us who showed up, so they put all 4 of us into a Lincoln Town Car Limo, and sent us to the pier. 2 of us went to the Fascination, and the other 2 went to the Imagination.
The worst case scenario is that if you have to use 2 taxis, and it is more expensive than the transfers, you can purchase a ticket at the airport when you arrive, and they will bill it to your sail and sign accounts.
Dave or PC ,
Do they not have a van or any other thing for a taxi besides cars?? 67 it would b cheaper to get it through carnival. If they don't have a van or small bus. Just wanted to beat the bus crew there. Lol. So what would be my best bet???
Keep in mind that the Cruise transport fee is per person. so $30 person is $120 (each way?) Whereas Dave's rate of $67 is per taxi. If you can get a minivan taxi, you might be able to get four people plus luggage in one taxi. Also if you have to be at the airport early on the return, the taxi is the less risky option. With the cruise transport they will wait until they have a full bus before leaving for the airport. So you could rush and push to be "first off" the ship, only to be waiting for 30 other people to get their luggage and through customs and outside...
Take the taxi.
