15 Convenient Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale) Park & Cruise Hotels

Posted January 23rd, 2017 in tips by Admin

When it comes to cruising, the cost of parking often catches people by surprise. For instance, the cost of parking at the Port Everglades cruise port runs $15 per day. On a 7-day trip, you’re spending over $100 on parking alone before you even step onto the ship.

But here’s a money-saving tip: If you are staying in the area the night before your cruise, many hotels have special park and cruise deals. You stay with them for one night and they will let you park your car for the length of your cruise.

This parking is much cheaper than parking at the port, plus many hotels will provide you with a shuttle to the cruise port. Often the cost runs just $5-10 per day, instead of the $15 charged at the port.

Now, if you weren’t already planning to stay near the port the night before your trip, then what you save on parking is not worth the extra expense of the hotel room. However, we actually recommend most people come early and stay in the port area the night before.

If you are flying into Fort Lauderdale, you definitely want to book your flight for the night before the cruise. These days, there are simply too many things that can delay your flight, from bad weather to airline computer systems failing. With so many delays, having the extra time will give you peace of mind.

If you are driving into Fort Lauderdale, then it’s not as important to stay in the area the night before. Still, doing so can make cruise day much more relaxing instead of rushing to get to the Port Everglades terminal.

In either case, there’s no doubt that staying in a Fort Lauderdale hotel with a park and cruise package can save you some serious cash.

That’s why we called dozens of hotels located near the port to ask about their parking packages. We have all the details below. Click the hotel name to read reviews from other travelers on TripAdvisor.com.
