We parked at the Fulton garage, and it was about 3-4 blocks away. When we got off the ship, with all the people and cars, rather than take the shuttle, we actually walked w/our luggage back to the garage. It was 1 block over, turn left, and 3 blocks ahead. I just didn't want to wait for the shuttle. We then walked over to downtown, Bourbon street, then hit Harrah's before we left. We left the parking garage at 2:30PM, and the cost (we did the 5 day Holiday) was $60.00. Watch out they don't charge you $84.00 for the 7 day cruise. Hope this helps.
