This place is close to the port and about half the price.

Gosh, there are sooooo many places to park your vehicle when you go on a cruise....some places are as low as $35.00 for 8 (eight nights) while you are on cruise....Has anyone used parking recently that they can recommend is safe to leave your vehicle for 8 nights....some reviews on some places are really sketchy!

I really don't know about parking near Port Everglades. This place is highly rated on Google.

We stayed at the Country Inn and Suites the night before the cruise. They have a package deal that allows you to park there for the duration of your cruise. Very nice Hotel and had no issues upon return with our vehicle. It was right across the higway and close to the terminal. There was a small fee for a round trip ride on the shuttle but well worth the covenience and they pick you up out in front of the terminal on your day of arrival! The drivers were great with stories and news of the area. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Be careful when parking at Port Everglades- They have so many ships sailing from there that the lots often end up full and they send you to the overflow lots. On our cruise in November my in laws drove and had a reserved spot to park in one of the lots. They got to the port about 30 mins after we arrived but after being sent to a different lot and waiting to park etc, they didn't get on the ship for almost 2 hours after us!

On top of that they had to left their keys in their UNLOCKED car so the parking people could move the cars around so they could get other cars in and out. I wouldn't have been too keen on leaving my car unlocked for the week....

Leave the car unlocked with the keys in it? Yeah, that makes me feel good about parking there too! "Hey Eddie, grab a car and make a McDonalds run!" "So you are telling me you used half a tank of gas just moving my car around the lot while I was on the cruise?"

That's exactly what I thought Dave. I'm sure the parking permit contains the words - "Not responsible for lost or stolen items" too.
