Just a word of caution
Balantyne Pier is what is considered the other side of the track.....not a very desirable place. One would not spend much time there unless they had to & Never at dark.
The hotels are not even rated for this area. Yes, they may be cheap but that is the only good thing about them. As to leaving a car while on cruise. You may only have a shell when you return.
Last June, we did a cruise from Canada Place - There was a v. good 9GATED)lot to leave the car closeby. they shuttled us from the lot to the ship, On return they dropped the car off to us at Canada Place. This did have to be reserved beforehand. The price was approx. $68 US.
WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEnD IT. Also, there are many hotels in this area. prices can be steep on some, but we were able to get one fairly reasonable - Many people bid for hotels on priceline and do well. Hope this helps.
