How To Use Uber for Cheap Transfers To/From the Cruise Port
Uber has established itself as one of the biggest game changers in transportation. Uber is a platform that connect riders (like you and Groove Cruise crew) with drivers in your city.
Car options include personal vehicles from people looking to make extra cash up to large UberXL vehicles made for 5+ people.
How Uber Works
- Open the app and can see cars available in your area.
- Set your pick-up point and a car will begin heading to your location.
- You can enter your destination to speed up the process.
- When the car arrives, you get in, and they take you to your destination.
- When you arrive, simply get out. The payment is handled completely within the app (and it even gives you the option to rate your driver).
No worrying about flagging down a taxi (especially in areas where taxi’s aren’t common), paying, or tipping. Just set your pick-up point, catch a ride, and arrive at your destination.
When it comes to your Groove Cruise experience, using Uber can save a lot of time and hassle from getting between the airport, your hotel, the cruise port, and hot spots around the port city. Uber is usually cheaper than a taxi, much more convenient, and a better overall experience (the drivers rely on ratings from riders).
Ready to sign up (it’s free)? Just download the Uber app to your phone and sign up for a new account. You’ll need to enter a credit card. This is used to handle your payments for your rides and it can be changed at any time.

*Free ride amounts vary by city. New users only. Valid in the U.S. Excludes TAXI. When you use my code, I also receive free ride credits. So, using my code is a great way to say thanks if the info on my site has helped you. You don’t have to use my code, but that means we both pay more to get around the port cities, and that makes me sad 🙁
