Florida Departures Ft. Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Miami & Port Canaveral & Tampa
The only hotel at the port is Holiday Inn Express. They do not appear to have a huge parking lot so I did not ask if we could leave the car there. The parking at the port is only $10 a day and it is a secured lot. Once the ship leaves, the gates are locked and no car goes in or out until you return. For $50 it is worth the peace of mind that your car and all 4 tires will be there when you return.
We actually started the car from the ship and the A/C was blasting when we go to the car.........COOL ! ! ! ! !
We did a cruise out of Jacksonville a couple of years ago on a Celebrity ship (which is no longer doing that route) and we stayed at a Wyndham. A whole group of us from CC stayed there and it was wonderful. We left our cars, took the shuttle and they picked us up upon our return. They went out of their way to accomodate us.
