How busy at the Port

Will be sailing on the Dream and noticed that there is one other ship sailing out of Port Canaveral that morning - the Carnival Ecstasy. Wondering if lines should be packed when trying to get a shuttle from Budget after dropping rental off with just one other ship.

We have never waited more than a couple of minutes for a Budget shuttle when dropping off the vehicle. THey typically run 2 shuttles on cruise days and they are only a few minutes from the terminal (Hertz is a block closer, then Budget. Other agencies are a few miles away). I've even had them be so efficient that when I came out from checking in the car, the driver and my passengers already had the luggage on the van and were waiting for me!

Also, we have often been the only passengers on the shuttle, although on other occasions it has been more full than "just us." It is the driver's call based on how many people are there and how many are in your group--they might opt to wait for more or might take off with just 2 people on board!

That is good to hear.

Avoid Avis!

Cruised July and October on the Fantasy and both times had to wait 45-60 minutes for shuttle to Port.

We have cruised many times and always used Avis when renting a car, but will no longer use Avis. Will look into Budget or Hertz.
