We want a 1 way car rental, Tampa to Miami's port. We will be in Florida for nearly a week before this cruise. DH called Alamo, and they said they do not rent one way. Does anyone have information about one way rentals to the port?

We couldn't find anything for Galveston for this year's cruise, and when we talked to people on the cruise there were definitely people who did just that.

Help! Thanks!

Bobbi

Thanks for letting me know. We'll work on Alamo. Do you happen to remember the address of the drop off location? That would help us a lot!

We are all set now as far as Miami!

How about renting a car near the port of San Diego?

I'm glad everyone had such a great time on this year's WBPC. How did all your DIS activities work out? I can't wait for ours! We just got back from a trip to New York and I'm ready to go on another vacation already.

DH is on the Facebook group, he's more chatty than I am so feel free to bug him often.

I think Avis has a location that is closest to the port, about 3 long blocks away. The airport is probably only a $10 cab ride from the port if you want to choose which rental company.

Another alternative for one way car rentals:

Enterprise has a $9.99 a day weekend deal. If I remember correctly (I have done it 3X in RI) you get 100 miles per day, max. Car is rented on a Friday at a non-airport location and can be dropped off on Sun or Mon at another (non airport) location as long as it is in the same state.

No prob. I only know it is MIA. They have a car rental facility with a bunch of companies there. Once you drop off your car there is free shuttle up on the 5th floor. It may not have been the 5th floor but I am sure you get the idea. The Alamo people said the free shuttle runs every 30 min to the port. It worked out great. Glad you made your arrangements. As far as San Diego goes. I got no clue what we are doing. Living in LA it really is a pain for me to fly home. We are thinking about just grabbing the train.

I was reading on the Port site that there was a train. I don't think of trains usually. I hope it works for you.

Hi All,
Bruce and I are going to sign up for this cruise in a few weeks while we are on our Med cruise. I have been watching this thread with envy as the PC is a bucket list trip for me. I will be retiring right before the cruise, and wanted to do something RIGHT AWAY, and leave work behind. I have worked my whole life...since I was 13...it is too weird to contemplate not going to work. Anyway, I figure the PC trip is the right way to retire!!!

Looking forward to chocolate, tequila, fish extenders, etc. on the way thru the PC.

In terms of transport & travel details for next year's cruise...

We are going to take a one-way flight to FLL, then SAS to the hotel. We'll skip queueing early at the port for upgrade & check-in...and opt to board after the staterooms are ready. Our family has never had an embarkation photo, it is a definite must next year!

The girls were talking about this cruise in the car this morning, "why does it cost money to go on a cruise when everything is free on the ship?"

Well last night I upgraded our room from a 11A to a 5B. It was still with 20% off and less than a hundred a night to do so. With a lot of verandah categories slowly disappearing, I am getting scared that this cruise will not be offered at a CM rate or the airline rate and maybe the VGT rate. As for transport. Flying to FLL then a car from Alamo then free shuttle from Alamo at MIA to the port.
