Was looking at the Raddison at the Port's website and found a great deal IMO, you can get a standard suite for $119.00 a night that INCLUDES free parking for your cruise and free shuttle and also breakfast. So for a 7 night cruise, it would have cost $70.00 to park at the port so the room is only costing 49.00, or a large suite with jacuzzi is only $149.00, and includes the same...
According to their site:
-FREE HOT BREAKFAST BUFFET FOR TWO
-COMPLIMENTARY PARKING WHILE ON CRUISE - SAVES $40.00 ON 4 DAY CRUISE AND $70.00 ON 7 DAY CRUISE ON PARKING
-COMPLIMENTARY SHUTTLE AVAILABLE TO AND FROM THE CRUISE SHIP
I stayed here on my first cruise. I was a good place for the money. Nice pool with a Jaccuzi with a waterfall. It has a tropical feel to it. Nice place to relax the night before the cruise. It is only a 5 minute shuttle ride to the port if I remember correctly!
We truly enjoyed the Radisson Resort at the Port. The pool is GREAT!!!! Very tropical looking. Almost everyone there is 'pre' cruise so everyone is in a great mood - staff included. The free shuttle at the Radisson is great EXCEPT that it is very very crowded. We went ahead and called for a taxi. Ended up with a nice new van with just the four of us and a leisurely drive to the port for $20. We thought it was well worth it to skip the trip in a cramped shuttle van where they stick in as many people and luggage as they can. We were loaded in, a/c on and away we went in a matter of minutes while the shuttle we had originally attempted to take was still trying to cram in more people and luggage. We did NOT rub it in and smile and/or wave as we comfortably drove by.
