    Hi!!! We are traveling to Miami the night before our cruise and are trying to find a place to stay. Looking for a hotel that has a shuttle (with seatbelts so i can secure the carseats) from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel to the cruise port.

    Hello, Chrystle! Welcome back to planDisney. It's great to see you sail our way. 

    How exciting to be cruising out of the lovely Port of Miami! I recently enjoyed sailing from this lively city, and while my time in Miami was brief, I found it to be beautiful. I especially enjoyed the views from the ship as we began to set sail. 

    I appreciate a carefree travel experience and often look for hotels that offer shuttle services. I'm not sure if this hotel shuttle offers seatbelts, but the Comfort Suites Miami Airport North currently offers a shuttle from the airport to the hotel and also from the hotel to the cruise port. If this hotel seems to suit your travel preferences, I recommend that you call to inquire about car seat use on the shuttles. 

    If you are interested in a more upscale hotel before your luxurious voyage begins, you can book a pre-cruise hotel night in Miami through Disney Cruise Line. You will have your choice between EB Hotel Miami (which offers a free hotel shuttle) and Hyatt Centric Brickell Miami. To book these hotels along with ground transportation, you may call Disney Cruise Line. A friendly agent will be happy to assist you. When booking ground transfers to the Port of Miami through Disney Cruise Line, the vehicles used can vary between a private car, shuttle van, or motorcoach. If a motorcoach is used, guests who bring a car seat will need to stow the item in the luggage compartment underneath the motorcoach.

    Chrystie, your best option for traveling to the cruise terminal may be to use a rideshare service, such as Lyft. You can schedule a car ahead of time, and choose a larger vehicle that will accommodate your luggage and car seats. This is what I did most recently to travel to the Port of Miami and it worked well for my family.

    I hope that I have presented you with an option that will work best for your sailing crew. I know that many magical memories are in your future! Adventure is out there!
