Default PORT OF TAMPA FL- how is the parking for a personal car?

How is the parking at the Port of Tampa with a personal car? Can anyone tell us? Going on our first cruise out of Tampa on the Inspiration Nov 18. Could use some feedback or advice on the parking. Ro and Kenny

Hello Ro;
The port of Tampa has an enclosed, covered garage that they use for cruise parking. They had an incident several months ago where quite a number of high line SUV's were broken into while their owners were on a cruise, and I've noticed that since then, they lock up the garage as soon as the ship sails, and don't unlock it again until the ship returns. At least that appears to be the situation. Bottom line, I think you're in good shape. Much better parking than the port of Miami. Have a great cruise.
Ken

The parking garage is covered. I park there everytime my Tampa cruise group has a get together. Going to park there in a couple of weeks. Last time I looked at the sign it was $10.00 per day.

Its a little cofusing the first time, I was there a couple weeks ago. you go thru 2 roundabouts and pull into luggage drop off. Then, you drive out back around, thru another roundabout and into the parking garage. It is across the street from the port.
it is 10.00 a day. my suv was safe.

Check with nearby motels. I haven't been out of Tampa but other places offer free parking with only one nights stay. It has worked for me.

I exit off of Hwy. 60 (Adamo Dr.) turn to the left and straight towards the port. You can't miss it the ship is looming ahead. I enter from the east side of the garage (missing the round about). If I am parking for the day I go under the parking garage and just on the other side I turn to the left which takes me directly into the garage - look for long term parking.

Radisson Riverside has free parking. The hotel is one mile from the ship ( I clocked it).
