I just looked on the DCL website and it says that the transfers are from George Bush Intercontinental Airport not Huston Hobby.

The cost from Hobby is $30 each way per person. We caught the shuttle at around 9:45 a.m. for the 45 minute ride to the port.

Be aware that the Hobby shuttles are apparently being discontinued sometime next spring.

30 pp each way. I booked it for our trip in April. She didn't mention them discontinuing it. I really, really, really hope that doesn't happen before our April sailing. That would not be good.

So what type of transportation is it? A shuttle? a Van? a bus?

So what type of transportation is it? A shuttle? a Van? Do I need to bring my car seat for my four year old?

From Hobby to the port, we had an approximately 20 person minibus marked Houston Medical Center. From the port back to Hobby, we had a full sized bus.

Not sure about the car seat since we don't have little ones.
