Miami International Airport to Miami Cruise Terminal
Note: MIA pick up - may just meet Taxis outside of baggage claim - look for Signs.

Airport - Seaport is a $24.00 Flat Rate one way + tip
In our experience the Sedans can hold two with 2 bags each and 1 carryon each comfortably
The Taxi Mini-Vans can hold 4 with two bags each and 1 carryon each comfortably
Yes you can squeeze more in - but an additional person with 2 bags will cost you considerable comfort.

Airfare Information

Airfare is not included in our pricing.  We are a Cruise and Tour Company and do not offer Air other than what the Cruise line offers.  With most domestic flights you can find much better pricing on your own if you know where to look.  For those flying we can share a couple of things.  If flying from the western states we suggest you check with Southwest Airlines, and JetBlue – these will offer the best prices in most cases.

To book Southwest, JetBlue or Vrigin America you must contact them directly or through their websites.

Southwest        http://www.southwest.com/             or   1-800-I-FLY-SWA (1-800-435-9792)
Note: Southwest services Ft Lauderdale, FL

JetBlue             http://www.jetblue.com/                 or    1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583)
Note: JetBlue services Ft Lauderdale, FL

Virgin America   http://virginamerica.com/               or    1.877.FLY.VIRGIN (877.359.8474) from the United States and Canada, 001.877.359.8474 from Mexico, or +1.650.762.7005 if you’re calling from other countries, between the hours of 3:30am - 11:30pm Pacific Time.

FT LAUDERDALE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (FLL) SHUTTLE SERVICE

Other Airlines

All other airlines may be checked through a Search Engine like Kayak.com - search one and done.
Once you find the price and itinerary you want, be sure to book directly with the Airline of your choice for best service.

When using search engines -
We have found it best to search here, but then try to book directly with the airline for better service.  This is especially true in the case of flight changes, delays, and cancellations – so you don’t get kicked around in these situations.  When push comes to shove, the Airlines treat theirdirect-booked clients better.
AND -- We always recommend Travel Insurance !

Carnival Air Arrangements

If you are flying cross country and arriving the day of the cruise embarkation, we would then suggest you consider the Cruise line air arrangements for 2 reasons.  1. They will guarantee to get you to the ship or the first port of call on their dime.  2. Transfers are included in their Air prices.  It's worth checking before you decide and you may cancel the air up until final payment without penalty.  Some folks book this as a back up while looking.   For more help, just call us at DanceFun 1-866-3256-2338 or 1-405-282-8989.
Monday – Thursday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Central Time.
