Default yep... another soda card question & Pre pay for parking?

Hello everyone, can someone please remind me....
How much are the soda cards??
I know they are so much, per day, per person.... and we bought two last yr, but I just can't remember how much we paid.
Also, did price go up?

Second question....
Has anyone heard of prepaying for your parking fees? Specifically referring to Long Beach Port (Los Angeles)??
Thanks, in advance.

Second question....
Parking is normally controlled by the Port Authority with no involvement whatsoever by the cruise line. Any advance payment would have to go to them. I have heard of advance payment at airport parking but never a cruise port. Can't imagine there would be much interest in that service.

Here is a link to Long Beach port. Parking is $12 per day. You can call and ask Phone: 562-901-3232. They do take credit cards. I hope that helps.

We are trying to prepay for as much stuff as possible, and when I can't prepay, I want to at least know how much to pay when I get there.
Your link was a very big help. Thanks again.

Loved it!! Of course we had nothing to compare it to since that was our first cruise ever!
But the staff was wonderful and the ship was beautiful!
The only things I didn't like was 1... I was told we'd be able to check on our S&S account from our room, we were not able to do that on the Paradise.
The 2nd thing... it wasn't long enough.... I knew after the first day, I should have booked a longer cruise.
