Port of Miami Cruise Parking

When it comes to parking at the Miami port, it pays to know your options. Prices vary considerably, based mainly on convenience to the port. As a rule of thumb, the closer you park to the ship, the more costly it will be. The most expensive parking, located right at the port, is also the easiest to use. Luckily, there are other options if you are a bargain hunter.

(Note: If you are planning to spend a night in the area, check out our page of Port of Miami hotels with cruise parking.)

Miami Port Parking: The port offers onsite parking that is very convenient and patrolled by security. Parking comes in both covered (parking garage) and uncovered lots. There is also a complimentary shuttle that will take you from the parking lots to your cruise terminal. Parking is available for oversized vehicles, but will cost extra.

For the convenience of parking here, be prepared to pay the price. Overnight parking is $20 per day ($140 for a 7-day cruise!). You should note that credit cards and cash are accepted. However, debit cards are not.
