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.
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.
