My inlaws have sailed on the Pride twice and both times my sister-in-law has dropped them off and picked them up with no problem. Getting on and off 95 is easy. We park there when we go, it's just easier for us.
Thanks, "trptplayer22." We are glad to have this further confirmation.
... Once you get through Customs and get your bags you are at a point you can use your cell phone and make a call your ride. ... There will be people in uniforms out on the parking lot out but when your friends tell them that they are dropping you off/picking you up they will be directed where to go. The U turn is also pretty easy - more of an "exit lane" to go back the opposite direction. ...
Thanks again, "pjlee3333." We're glad to have the added information about the uniformed people directing traffic -- and about the u-turn. As to the first thing that you mentioned, however ...
Last time, I wrote, "We will have a planned pick-up time, and we will try to get out there a bit earlier, so that our friends will not have to wait, since we will not have a convenient way of phoning them to come for the pick-up."
The reason I said that "we will not have a convenient way of phoning them" is that we do not have a cellular phone, because we don't want to have one, for a few reasons. We also would not use a pay phone at the port, for a couple of reasons: (1) we don't know if our friends will have a phone in their car; and (2) our friends will be coming from about forty minutes away, so they will be leaving home according to our prearranged schedule. There would be no point in calling them, because they will be on the road.
