Is Port of Tampa Cruise Parking easy?
 
Is it easy to park at The Port of Tampa if you have not done it alone before? I am looking at my options.

From what I have seen, it is pretty easy. I can let you know better next week when I return. I know that the parking garage is directly across the street from the cruise terminal. Also, I have heard that they have valet parking as well. I am not sure the cost of anything there as of yet, but like I said I can let you know next week. We leave tomorrow :D

Yep, VERY easy. The parking garage is located across the street from where you check in, (actually the entrance you must use for extended parking is about one block away) however, they DO offer valet parking, and they will take your car from the spot where you drop off your luggage if you wish, and park it for you. Yes, there is additional charge for this, but I think it's nominal. That would make it exceptionally easy, as you drive in, give the porter your checked luggage, give the valet guy your car, and walk 20 steps to check in.
Another good point for Port of Tampa parking, IMO, is that the garage is locked up as soon as the ship sails, and remains locked up until the ship returns. Pretty good security for your car, and it's contents. I'm not sure what the "per day" charge is now. It keeps going up at all the ports. I think it's either $12 or $15 per day now.
See y'all aboard.

I parked there last Feb for my cruise and it was $20 a day.

It is across the street from the terminal.

Simply pull into the bay area and give you luggage to the porters...then go park.

When we were there in May, they started letting folks drop luggage about 10:30am.

As I recall, it wasn't easy because the entrance was through the EXIT as they didn't open up the gate; must have known that DTW, Dina and I were trouble.
Hey I thought it was $25.00 per day, guess I covered some of Dave' s beer.

Dave the Wave August 20th, 2008 01:57 PM

It was $12 per day. MSBJ you probably paid Erik's share. It is easy and directly accorss the street. We just had to go in the out door.

colorcrazie August 20th, 2008 02:35 PM

As of May of this year, it was $12 a day.

No problem Dave. Trust me,,,,I won't say anything,,,,to anybody. :roll: WOW, what a great idea. I'll have to remember that the next time I sail with all my brothers on our annual family reunion cruise. (Do you think they'll buy that the parking went up to $50 a day?) :D

Dave, how did you make out with that tropical storm down there in Tampa? I need to call my cousins in Bradenton to see how they are doing. Bob

Ro August 21st, 2008 06:38 AM

Tampa Bay area received only rain during the afternoon hrs each day this week & slight winds.

ragtiki2005 August 21st, 2008 12:04 PM

Thanks for the update RO. Concerned about family down there. Bob

Tampa parking
 
You pull up to the pier, drop your bags then park in the cruise lot across the street. Simple and easy!
Mark

skymaster August 23rd, 2008 05:52 PM

Yep, drop your bags, go halfway around the circle, continue for about 50 yards, and turn in to the garage on the left. There will be a sign that says something like "cruise parking".

Port of Tampa Cruise Parking
 
Parking at the Port of Tampa is as easy as finding the port itself as the parking facilities are located just across the street from the terminals. The port authority charges $14 a day to park your vehicle at their facility and Premier Parking Ventures charges $7.99 a day to park your vehicle at their secure facility.
