Transportation - What Would You Do?

I'm reaching out to the Disboarders to see what you would do for transportation. Myself, DW, DD-7 and DD-5 are flying into Ft. Lauderdale 1/27 and staying at the Westin Diplomat in Hollywood. 1/28 we Embark on our first Disney Cruise out of Miami! I need some advice. Would you: a) take a cab from the airport to the hotel Sunday night and then a shuttle to the port of Miami Monday morning? or b) rent a car at FLL and return it to MIA then take the rental car shuttle to the port? Price is pretty close when I factor in transportation fees, tips, gas, etc...

Thank you in advance for your opinions!

I am using SAS transportation from FLL which was the cheapest rate that I found between renting a car for 5, taking a taxi or car service. I will be using them next week so I can let you know how good they are after that.

I prefer early check in, so I'd take a taxicab or car service to avoid possible long wait time for the courtesy shuttle.
We're also flying to FLL and cruising out from Port Miami. We'd like to spend a couple days in Miami after the cruise, so I plan to use car services to POM and rent a car afterwards.

Here are some car services:
QLS Transportation
SAS Transportation
GO Airport Shuttle

Did the same thing on a Carnival cruise 2 yrs ago staying at the same hotel. We took a cab from FLL to the hotel. Then the next morning took SAS transportation from hotel to POM. Worked great, no problems.
