Hotel Packages?

Florida Departures - boards.cruisecritic.com
Hello My CC Friends!

Once again I'm heading to these boards because you all are always lifesavers and a wealth of information. I did try to find an answer to my question before starting another thread but I'm getting myself so confused! We are semi-seasoned cruisers (this will be our 11th) but we are from Pittsburgh, PA and have only ever left from Baltimore or Bayonne. This is will be our first flight to a cruise port. Actually it's our family's first flight ever (and yes, I'm scared lol). We are looking for a hotel that includes a shuttle to the cruise port - here is where I'm getting confused. We fly into Fort Lauderdale but we leave on the Vista out of Miami. Do we look for a hotel in FL instead of Miami because it might be substantially cheaper (not sure if it is or not)? If we do stay in FL and the hotel has a shuttle is it uncommon to need a shuttle to Miami and not just to the FL port? There will be six of us total - three in my family and three in my sister's family. Do we not worry about a hotel with a shuttle and just look into some kind of van? I've used Uber before but I'm not sure how that would work with luggage even if we did two separate cars. Please help my wise friends! Thanks in advance!
