Galveston parking

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used the Falstaff parking lot at the Galveston cruise port? It's much cheaper than the parking that Carnival supports so just wondered if anyone has experience with them. I think it just opened in March. Thanks!

I use www.ezcruiseparking.com, it's close and easy. haha

We drop our bags off at the terminal first instead of the hassle of toting them on the shuttle. Afterwards, we head to the lot, ride the shuttle over with just a backpack, and board the ship. Visit their website, it will tell you all you need to know.

I use Galveston Park n Cruise, directly across the street from the terminal, because they offer covered parking.  The combination of salt and sand in the Gulf breezes, and the hot Texas sun, makes me prefer covered parking even though it's more expensive.

 

I haven't heard of the one you mentioned but would be interested to learn more about it.

Falstaff parking lot at the Galveston cruise port is new , inside covered secured parking facility.

Parking decks are elevated and probably much higher than other ground lots near the port.   

Price is right .  Have not used. Less than two  miles from terminal, probably only one mile?

We have it booked for April.  They have really good reviews.  Has anyone had to use a wheelchair using this parking lot?

How far ahead do you recommend booking a parking space? I'm cruising in October. It looks like park/cruise  and Falstaff are close in price, but I'm thinking I would be willing to pay the extra for a  Falstaff shuttle to and from the ship.

I've  used www.ezcruiseparking.com since they opened for business, about 2013.

We have two cruises in February and I just booked parking last week for both. I've never had a problem getting a parking spot in   Galveston even when we used someone else.

Thanks - they were more expensive than the other 2, not by much...but I saw where someone mentioned coupon codes for them. This will be my 1st solo cruise and I want to make sure I get everything lined out in time!

The shuttle is included in the Falstaff parking.
