The Virgin Brightline train to Port of Miami (PortMiami) is an ever-expanding option for cruise passengers up the East Coast of Florida (and Orlando by 2022).
The Brightline train is very comfortable and the whole experience is friendly and stylish. It is affordable with available upgrades should your budget allow for spending a bit more.
For a general discussion about Brightline, fares, the current train stations and nearby airports, please read my article Brightline Train To and From East Coast Airports
In this article my focus is on the Miami Station of Brightline – where you will arrive from either Fort Lauderdale or West Palm Beach.
