Transfer from Sydney Airport to Cruise Terminal

Hi,

Can I please get some pointers on shuttle companies doing transfers? We are a party of 5, travelling one way on 15th December 2013.

I have seen shore tours and shuttlemate online. Any feedback on these or other companies gratefully received.

Thanks.

If you are doing a P&O cruise or maybe a Princess Cruise (Sun, Sea or Dawn) then they will probably dock at White Bay and if that's the case, the only shuttle will be run by the cruise lines as far as I'm aware so you would need to book through them.

If your cruise docks at the Overseas Passenger Terminal (OPT) at The Rocks / Circular Quay, again only the cruise line will run shuttles but you certainly have more transfer options here including train and taxi. I guess you could take a public bus too but that's not something I would want to do apart from the fact it's going to take longer than a train or taxi, you'll more than likely have to change buses (I'm guessing the latter as I haven't looked at the timetable).

Hi is it worth paying the extra to Royal Carribean for transfers from Sydney airport to cruise terminal (domestic) or just as easy to get a taxi?

I guess it depends on how many there are in your party. If there's more than 2, then I think a taxi would be cheaper - based on my understanding that a cruise line transfer is $20 pp.

Edit ... if your RC ship will be docked at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at The Rocks / Circular Quay, you could catch the train from the airport terminal to Circular Quay for around $16 pp and then a flat easy walk close by to the ship. Escalators and elevators are at Circular Quay railway - same at the airport terminal.

Bit short on detail, blondie. $80 would be a bargain for me to get home.

If you're going to exhume a dead thread to complain, at least give some details that might add some credence to your tale.

$60 for what is, essentially, a taxi service, sounds very expensive. From either White Bay or the OPT,a cab wouldn't cost anywhere near that.

>>(no unsuspecting extra trip to increase fare).<< When does that ever happen?

Do I sniff the odor of self promotion? A necropost nearly 2 years old recommending a service?
