I would appreciate any and all tips about parking in Miami. Rates, locatins. I was told by NCL that we would be sailing from Port of Miami South America Way, Dodge Island. Downtown Miami, Miami Fl. 33152.
We parked at the Carnvial park lot for !0.00 us a day. It is suppose to be a secure area but people can get in as there were no gates/doors to stop them after hours. It is a short walk then to the Terminal. If you have a truck just don't leave anything in the back ie..storage container unless it weighs a ton. Someone had tried to take our spare tire but my husband had it bolted down with a steel wire. Note this was 2000. Also if you goto www.carnival.com and check out the parking they'll let you know the place and price. p.s. don't leave chocolate in the car...very messy lol. Enjoy your cruise.
Yep, there is parking very near your ship on Dodge Island, in Miami. What you will normally do is drop your checked luggage (not your carry-on, or your tickets or documents) with a porter, then park your vehicle and walk back to the boarding area. It's either $10, or $12 per day, depending on which lot or garage is nearest your dock. We've parked there ten or fifteen times over the years, and (knock wood) have never had any problems.
Good luck, and have a great cruise.
