I was planning on parking my car at the Port of Miami while I go on my 7 day cruise. That was, until I just found out it will cost me $140+tax!!!!! The price has gone up to $20 per night!!!

Now, I am looking for alternatives. Any advice? Thanks in advance.

If you stay at the Holiday Inn in Port of Miami the night before they offer free parking while on your cruise and also shuttle service from the airport to hotel and hotel to ship.

SanDee:

Thank you, that sounds great. I just hope it doesn't cost $150 a night at the Holiday Inn

By the way, it would cost me $160+Tax to park at the Port of Miami. I was adding up $20/day times 7, when actually they will charge for 8 days.

LHT28 (Lyn):

I will check those websites. I knew there must be a parking garage nearby the port, just like there are around the airport in Miami.

Sandee, unfortunately, I checked the Holiday Inn Port of Miami website. The cheepest room would cost a little more than $100 everyday except Friday. Then on Friday (the day before the cruise ) the price jumps to over $200!!

Frase...yes the rooms are not cheap but then you are only 6/10 of mile from the terminal. Combining the hotel room and the parking it is not bad. Better than paying $75.00 for a room and $160.00 for parking. Also I have found better prices for that hotel on other travel sites. I think we were quoted $135.00 for Saturday night. I think it was Expedia but not positive. That's less than parking.

Ok, maybe my mind was (is) doing tricks on me. I checked the Port of Miami's official website again, and the price is $15 per day to park
I could have sworn I saw $20 per day to park

Still.... $15 per day to park there is still quite high. That works out to $120+tax for a one week cruise (they will charge for 8 days).

Why should they charge you for 8 days? If they charge per 24 hr period that should only be 7.

That might be true, SanDee. Especially if I check-out the following Saturday, at a time before I checked-in the previous Saturday.

Anyway, I will keep searching for a cheaper way of getting to Miami. One of my friends at work suggested I take a bus called Cruise-Connection. Here is the website: www.cruise-connection.com
