If you trael by car to get to your ctruise terminal do you park onsite or off site?

I was curious to find out if most of us just use the onsite parking lots to park your car or do you use off site parking?

I have used onsite parking in the port of Long Beach and the port of Los Angeles. Last time I left my car at Long Beach it was vandalized to steel the gas. Since it has a locking gas filler door they sliced the gasket where the filler tube connects to the body of the car.

Now I use a Limo service (less expensive then car repairs).

In NY you park onsite. $40/ nite up to 10 nights..Its very convenient. Especially when you get home.

There are offsite garages with online discount offers.

When we have driven to the cruise port, it only involved two locations

In Bayonne, we parked directly across from the gangway. It was pretty awesome actually.

In NYC, there is one lot along side the ship and a couple remote lots that offer shuttle/taxi service or are close enough you can walk. One we used advertised one price but charged us more when we arrived. We will not use them again. They know they have you over a barrel when your car is loaded up and you want to get going on vacation.

When leaving from Boston, we just have a taxi or car service to/from home to the cruise terminal.

We have sailed out of NY a few times and always park on the roof of the terminal. I love it. Once off the ship and through customs it is into the car and drive home

Usually I try to park at the port (secure parking). My last cruise I opted for a "stay and sail" special at a local hotel, which included the shuttle to and from the port. Although there was not problem with either the parking or the service, I really did miss being able to jump in my car at the end of the cruise as opposed to waiting for a shuttle on a crowded curb.

I am so sorry to read that this happened to your car.

I hate when businesses take advantage of people like this. The best thing to do is not use them again as you did. Thanks for letting all of us know what happened to you.

In NY, there was an online offer for 1/2 the pier charges. It was about 7 blocks away. We grabbed a cab right outside the garage ( I told the guy not to drop the flag for $25 ). When we came home there was snow everywhere. The port lot was covered. My car had some dust on it. I would have hated to come home and clear off my car. Sadly, that lot was sold and no longer offers the discount. The nearest one is on 42nd st. Not worth it to me.

I have parked at the pier in San Pedro a few times. We usually felt to catch our cruises.

We pay half that in Port Canaveral and we complain about the high cost. So instead we have a shuttle pick us up for $5 or so pp. They pick us up on our return for the same fee. This is for 4 people sharing. A
