If I drive from home to the ship in new york city, is there parking there for me to leave my car until I return?

Hi lisavet, and welcome to cruise-chat.

Yes, there is ample parking at the Manhattan terminal. Click HERE for more info. This site also has links to additional information about the terminal, including driving directions.

Thanks Lisa for the information. I may just end up taking a motorcoach bus so I do not have to worry about what time to get there and what to do but if I do drive it is nice to know that I will have somewhere to park.

I am going on the spirit May 19th so if I drive do I have to do anything in advace for parking. I have never been on a cruise, just land vacations so this is all new to me.

You may have to compare the round trip taxi/motorcoach ride with the parking fee--not cheap!

Lisa, all you need to do in advance is make sure you have enough cash on hand, as they do not take credit cards.

You chose a great day to cruise. There will be two other ships in port with you, which makes sailaway so much more exciting.

(Don't worry -- there will be plenty of room in the parking garage.)

We sailed on Princess and parked at their port. There was plenty of parking. It was $18 the first day and $19 per day the rest of the week. There was a automated attendant machine that you had to put you card in and either pay by cash or credit card. I know it didn't take Discover. It then validated your ticket and you gave it to the gate attendant as you left. We carried off our own luggage, got off at 8:15, paid the fee, got lost, experienced the traffic, drove over the Brooklyn Bridge, thru Manhattan, thru a tunnel and was out of NY city and on the highway home by 8;40. Not bad and a nice drive. The only way to fly.

Enjoy. It was very nice to be stuck in traffic on the bridge. Gave us a chance to see the city.
