Port Everglades Parking

Guardian Angel

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


We will be heading out on the Caribbean Princess on 9/2 and will be driving over to Ft. Lauderdale. Does anyone know which parking garage Northport or Midport) will be the closest garage to where the CP docks? Thanks for your help!


I believe it is the north lot... it is the one just off 17th street. There are plenty of signs at both port entrances directing you to the right ship/parking.

United parking www.unitedparking.com is near port, $6.00 a day instead of $12.00 and they deliver and pick you up at cruise port. You might try link to see if this would be good for you.


The extra expense for parking at the port is well worth it. Tight security 24/7 your cars going to be there when you return. Enclosed garage parking, if the weather turns bad while your away your car is protected. Careful with parking services outside of the secure port zone, some are nothing more then an unpaved, unprotected lot in the bad part of town. Some as our local paper reported in the past, swap parts out of the cars while the owner is away. The owners are clueless to the switch until days, weeks or months later. :cool:

Do yourself a favor if you're leaving your car during hurricane season....

Park on the second or better yet the third level as close to the center of the garage as possible. That way no matter the weather, your car will be safe. Higher up is OK, but if there is no electricity when you return, you'll have to hoof it up the stairs. We left our car in the middle of level 3 last year during Wilma and did not even have a drop of water on it when we returned.

Whatever you decide do not use Airport Park N Go @ Quality Car and Van Rental. We booked this place through www.unitedairportparking.com 8 months ago and it was terrible. When we arrived for our cruise there were several local police cars there to investigate crunched bumpers, vandalism, and other issues. It tooks us over an hour to get their transfer to the ship. A week later when we returned, 2 of our autos were damaged including damaged bumpers and a broken window from a failed break-in attempt. The staff told us to they were not responsible for damage and we would have to take it up with our insurance companies. Never again...
