I am going on the Mariner 9/19/04. We live about 3 hours away, so we were thinking we would just drive there Sunday. But I saw that if you stay at the Radisson, you can park there for free, thereby avoiding the $70 parking fee. Is this true? How is the shuttle from the hotel, both pre and post cruise? I've found rates to be about $100/night. Do you know if there are any other local hotels that offer free parking and a shuttle? Thanks for the info.
