You can either add transfers to your cruise, or just get a private towncar/van service. Or rent a car.

In Jan we did 4nts at AKL, 4nts on the Wonder, and a day at DTD before heading home. We actually found it cheaper and more convenient to reserve a rental car from the airport for our entire stay, even after factoring in the cost of parking it at the port during our cruise. Via Priceline, we got a minivan for $19/day, and it worked out cheaper than all the combinations of ground transfers that we came up with.

I did actually take ME from the airport to the AKL with the kids, while DH got the rental car, thinking it would be quicker and easier than trying to grab our luggage and install car seats at the airport or rental lot. Alas, our ME experience was neither magical or express, and DH arrived at the hotel probably an hour before we did! Not sure we'd do that part again!! But the rental car was great, and it gave us flexibility to go from park to park, or to go back to our hotel easily so the kids could nap mid day. It also gave us a place to store the car seats while on the cruise, and meant we didn't have to pay the rental car agency or the town car company for car seats.
