Default Parking In Port Canaveral

Just saw a nice park and ride at Port Canaveral. Stopped in to talk to the folks at Park N Cruise. $6.99/Day parking sure beats the $15/Day that the port charges. Info from their business card - www.parkcruise.com phone 321-454-2500.

Other than their distance from the port I have not heard any bad reviews.

Default Parking in Port Canaveral

It was less than 5 minutes from the Port. You can see their sign on the 528 just before the port.

It seems if you reserve online they take 10% off.

Please let us know.

Some pics of the lot/facilities would be nice too...Covered? Security? Lighting?

Otherwise sounds like a great deal for those of us who drive to port.

Look forward to hearing what you think. Shirley over on the Port Canaveral thread wasn't impressed with the facility but didn't say why. Be good to hear what a user has to say.

Google it and do a satelitte view. Unless they have put up a fence and paved since the pictures were taken, definitely not a place I would leave my car.

Yeah, I did that. Thought the sat pic might be out dated. That's why I asked. They're obviously not using the SeaRey boat factory lot. And I certianly wouldn't leave my car in an open dirt lot.

I tried this park and ride on my cruise on the Monarch of the Seas this past Monday to Friday. Overall I had a great experience. The price was cheap $6.99/day. Their parking facilities looked pretty good to me, it was fenced all the way around and I saw some big lights out on the front of their property. Also there is a HUGE digital billboard on the property that must light the whole place up at night. It took about 5 minutes to get to the ship and there was really no wait on the return on friday - maybe 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend them to save alot of money on parking. I took some pictures but im not sure how to post them on here.

Would love to hear more about this. How did you get from parking facility to the port? And how much was it?
When you got back after the cruise how long did you have to wait to get a cab? (assuming you used a cab)

We are driving down in September, I also would be interested in this. Half the price is certainly and incentive for me to try it.

We used them for our April 2nd NCL Sun cruise, and it went smoothly. Easy to get to, they dropped us right at the terminal with our luggage for it to go on board, they picked us up right at the terminal (off to the right where the buses pick up)

It's not staffed 24 hours a day, but it is lit, and they police patrol there often is what they said. We had 0 problems. In fact, I had parked next to someone with a shiny red mustang, that had covered it with a canvas cover, and it had blown off, and they recovered and re-tied it for him.

If I cruise out of Canaveral again, I wouldn't hesitate to use them.
