We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott in Cocoa Beach, which did transfers to the ship. We drove so I don't know details.

Unless you're flying into Melbourne, FL, I doubt you'll find a hotel near the port that will pick up at the airport (i.e. Orlando or Sanford). Those are over an hour away from the port area, in the middle of the state - hotel shuttles don't usually go that far from home!

That said, there are a lot of options. Taxis and town cars will happily transport you to any port area hotel, and many town car services offer a grocery stop on the way. Additionally there are other shuttle services (vans/ride shares) that will pick up from the airport in Orlando and take you to the port hotels. Go to the airport website and look on their transportation page - they usually list all of the available transportation companies there. You can also do a one-way car rental to the port, which may be less expensive, depending on the number of people in your party.

Most of the port-area hotels do have a shuttle to the port - some are free, some are extra. You'll want to double-check with the hotel when you check in on what the policy for reserving your space on the shuttle is, though, to ensure you can actually get to the port by your selected PAT!

Thank you for all the info. We think we might hire a car now as we are two couples so less expensive and get a taxi next morning.
