I realize that this doesn't affect many east coast cruisers but the parking fee in Fort Lauderdale, Fl. has just gone from $12 per day to $15. I guess they thought they might as well follow everyone else with an increase & no one would notice. Have the parking fees changed at west coast ports as well?

Now what would warrant a price increase for a parking lot? Oh, I know, GREED!

Wow, that makes parking in Galveston a real bargain - private lot by EZCruiseParking of $30 for 5 night cruise! Only $50 for 7 night cruise.

Yea everyone is probably going to try to get on the wagon and up things a few bucks. The end result will be a big increase in prices.
We stay at a Hotel in San Diego that lets us keep our car there while we cruise. It is only a few blocks from the pier. If you want it they will even shuttle you back and forth. Oh course next time I check rates I might be surprised.

Many of the ports are raising rates right now. Some are getting close to the extreme cost of NYC ports which are currently $24. per day. A few have gone up to $20. per day this year. The Port Authority controls pricing not the cruiselines. I guess everybody is getting in on the higher rates and fees now.

Rodney, be careful of the private lots at the piers. They are lower cost but often have lighting and security issues. The Port Authority lots have 24 hour security in that little guard shack and drive golf carts around to check on your vehicles.

Cheers, Neil

As of this morning it's still $12.00 a day in San Pedro, but who knows for how long.

If I have no one to drop me off at the pier I take Super Shuttle. I know people who have driven to the pier in Miami to find the lot closed because it was full.

Miami does still have a covered garage, at least on my December 1st cruise.
