park and cruise deals with Glory cruise
Has anyone had any problems/long delays gettting a shuttle to or back from a cruise when they had stayed at the Radisson or Country Inns and Suites (the ones right next to the port)? And also, is it difficult to find the shuttle that is supposed to take you back to your car? I am trying to decide if I should just take a cab back if it is a lot of trouble getting back after the cruise.

We stayed at the Radisson and parked our car there. When we booked our room, there was a telephone number on their web site to call to set up your shuttle pick up time...I believe they started transporting guests to the Port at 11:00 a.m. but you can check with the hotel. Don't wait until your check-in day to schedule your shuttle, do it as soon as you make your reservations because everyone wants to get to the ship early and the shuttle van only holds so many people. When we got off the Glory, the shuttle van was right there waiting for us and we were back at the hotel within 10 minutes. We are Platinum on Carnival, therefore, we were off the ship at 8:00 a.m. Port Canaveral is such a great port to cruise out of and they are very organized. When you get off the ship, you just walk across the street to the parking lot where the shuttle will be waiting for you. The hotel is so close to the Port, the shuttle makes those round trips quickly. They drive into the parking lot where your car will be parked, drop off all the luggage, and they are on their way back to the Port to pick up additional passengers.

We stayed at the Radisson for the first time this past May 2007. We stayed for the one night had a blast, ate at the buffet seafood restaurant, hung out by the pool. The shuttle took us over at the port at 10:00am. There were like 20 people ahead of us and we boarded the ship and relaxed onboard until they let us in our cabins. We booked the Radisson again for April 2008 cruise and will do exactly the same thing. The shuttle was fast both taking and picking us up would do it no other way! Hotel is so nice to.
