Default Port Canaveral Cruise Check-In at a Hotel?

We'll be going on the Pride in June, and will be driving to Florida. We want to make hotel reservations for the night before the cruise. Does anyone know if Carnival has arrangements with any of the local hotels for early cruise check-in and luggage drop off? We were able to check-in and give Carnival our luggage at a hotel in Miami last year, and it really expedited the boarding process when we got to the Port. Thank you!!

I just spoke to a Carnival agent and was told that a few hotels (they will give you the list of names) do offer hotel check in for the cruise, BUT it is never guarenteed. It depends on the number of cruisers booked at the hotel and the decision is made that morning as to wether or not they will send an agent over to begin early check in. They will not give you a number of how many people are checked in and booked on the cruise to help in your decision making! The hotels rates that were given to us were double any other hotel we were reccomended to stay in, so depending on how much you want to spend and how much of a gambler you are will factor into your decision.

Have a great cruise!

We went on the Pride April 13 - a large group of us and we stayed at the Best Western at Cocoa Beach. A bus picked us up Sat. morning and took us to the ship.

Thanks to all. We went with a suite at the Radisson, since they'll let us park there for the week and provide a Port Shuttle. The $70 saved in parking almost pays for the Suite!
