Besides parking at the pier for $30 a day. Has anyone discovered a less expensive PARKING option close to the port?

I'm curious to hear also- I was planning on just driving to my dad's house out on LI and leaving my car by him. Take LIRR into city and cab it over to pier...but if I can have my car close to the pier I would really prefer to do that so we can drive home as soon as we debark (instead of heading back to LI for our car.).

Good news it is now 35 per day.

Not sure what you can do but I park by my moms in southern NJ and take a bus to port authority and than cab.

DW does not like it but not going to pay $ 280 to park for 8 day cruise.

We parked at the Weehawkin ferry ($10 a day plus ferry fare, I forget the exact amount but it was under $30pp roundtrip) then from where the ferry drops you off, you can easily walk to pier 88 or take a cab for about $12.
This was a great option for us, was fairly easy and saved us well over $100. Will be doing it again in August.

$35 per day ?? I'm guessing the info on Carnival site has not been updated as it still says $30?? How much is Miami port parking ? We will be sailing out of Miami in Jan. 2013..wonder how much more it will go up??

$245.00 is alot of money for a parking spot but its easy in easy out. No lugging around luggage. We are a family of four so we pay the $$$ and park at the pier.

I found someone that posted something about an app for the iphone it ask when you are looking to park and it will list garage prices around the city. We may try this as my husband doesn't mind walking a few blocks. the app is call best parking.

would love to hear what you decide to do

Park at the long term parking garage at one of the airports and take a cab...you don't have to drive in the city or wait to park the car and bring your luggage down...

No reason to. $ 15 each way for bus and than say $ 10 for cab each way works for me.

That is true. If my wife and kids [20 & 22] packed less we could take the LIRR & a cab to the port.

We agree! Easy in and out, easy with luggage, worth the cost for the convenience for us too.
