I like the Radisson Resort At The Port. The two room suites are especially nice and not much more than a standard room. Free shuttle to the ships too.

Dave, thank you for your help. I checked the web site you gave me. You were right, the two-room suites are really nice with all the features. But it looks like it has only 1 king bed, and we have six people. It's nice that there's a room with cruise parking, but we really don't need that. Do you know if there's any way we can get one of the cruise parking rooms, but pro-rate the price since we don't need the cruise parking?

I recall our suite having two double beds in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the other room. The cruise parking has always been included for all guests, not just for specific rooms. They had a grass lot next to the hotel for people to park in. So I'd say there is no pro-rata option. You'd have to call the hotel directly to see.

We usually get a limo for the Port Canaveral cruises, and arrange for them to do the whole thing - MCO to the hotel, and ship to MCO. It isn't much more than a taxi would be - of course that isn't especially cheap, so it really comes down to what your budget can afford. I just like the personal service of a limo.

There are shuttles and buses too. Here is a good list of choices.

Actually, the one I have used there gave me a bad experience the last time. Happy Limo. They screwed up our pickup at the ship and I had to take a taxi. I did get a prompt refund from Happy. But I won't use them again. I have heard good things about Royal Limo but I have not used them yet.

Mears Transportation is the biggest operator in central Florida.

Dave, thank you for your quick reply. I guess I'll have to call and check around for a taxi, and maybe a limo .I've already booked a 2 king bed suite at Radisson hotel.I am so excited, can't wait for the cruise to come.

tanyababanya-

Consider renting a car in Orlando (Avis) and dropping it off at the cape. We are renting a mini van for $60. If there is more than one in your party, its not a bad deal. You should call AVIS in Canaveral and see if there is some means of getting you to the hotel (or maybe the hotel shuttle can be arranged to pick you up from Avis?)
