Hello, just wanted to know is it better to take a shuttle to the dock at Port Canaveral? Does it make boarding go any smoother? I have heard such horry stories about trying to park your car and then getting the shuttle to the pier, I would be thankful for any information...........................We are sailing October 25,2003 on the Glory and are staying at the Radisson at the port.........................Marsha
We sailed out of Port Canaveral last Ocotober and we parked in the parking lot. It was not bad at all. The parking was (I think) $10.00 a day. We arrived around 11:00 am and had no problems. There are attendants that will have carts to help you with your luggage, (tipping is pushed). Also by getting there early, there were no lines, we went right through... I guess we were lucky because I have heard some horror stories..
Last year may have gone smoothly with the Pride, but with the Glory it is totally a different story. Because the Glory is so much bigger it can't dock at Carnival's terminal so they have to use another one. I would personally try and get a shuttle because parking with the Glory is terrible. The total time from when we dropped off our luggage to when my mom returned from the parking lot was 45 minutes which is a long time to just sit and wait.
