Miami pier parking is at a rate of $20.00 per day per slot.. However a little known fact parking may be free with a handicap placard (I say may because it could be discontinued on a moments notice)..
If you want to contact the port
Port of Miami
1015 N. America Way, 2nd Floor
Miami, FL 33132

305-371-7678 - Phone
305-347-4852 - Fax


Hope this helps

go to unitedairportparking.com and look for port of miami, ther are now 2 lots that have cruise parking and both provided shuttle to and from the port. both will require you to drop off at leat one person at th eport prior to checking in at the lot, as they will only shuttle 4 people from any vehicle. but you will save a lot by choosing one of them. one I beleive it is called premeir (sp) is only about one mile from the port whereas the other is out near the airport.

Are you planning to stay in a hotel in Miami the night before the cruise? If so, there are some that will let you leave your car there and shuttle you to the port. Usually, you'll have to get a taxi back to the hotel after your cruise, but that shouldn't cost a lot.

I have driven and flown to Miami from Pa. We flew the last time I was there arriving the day before. 17 of us chartered "Miami 911" for transportation to the hotel from the airport, from the hotel to the pier the next day and used Carnival transfers on our return to the airport. This service was somewhat expensive but worth every penny, all 17 of us arrived together. If I were to drive to Miami again I would definitely park at the terminal the 20 dollars a day is a small price to pay in relation to everything else involved, and after the cruise you don't have to wait on anyone else to fill a bus etc. before you go to get your car.
