I would think by law, there must be a certain amount of handicap parking. I know at Black Falcon Pier, in Boston, we have used it in the parking garage.

For you in Baltimore, you gat a shuttle to the pier,we don't. From the port website, here is a blurb..

Baltimore cruise parking is easy. No advance reservations are required to park in the lot located on the South Locust Point Marine Terminal. Ample long-term parking is located within walking distance of the Passenger Building and courtesy/handicap shuttles are available. Parking fees are payable upon arrival by cash or traveler's checks only.

Thanks or the info. Our 1st cruise was out of Miami in 2004, and it cost us nothing to park in handicap area. 2nd cruise wa out of Lauderdale & it cost us $100. plus. I guess there are no set rates at all ports.

You will pay for handicap parking in almost all of the ports unless you have need for wheel chair van access that has unit attached to your van with the exception where it is totally free with handicap sticker in Chas. SC

This is from Port of Everglades, but its pretty much a statewide thing.

In 1996 the Broward County Board of Commissioners, acting under authority of Florida Statute 316.1959, elected to charge disabled patrons of the Port Everglades parking facilities the same fees as are applied to all other patrons; and that pursuant to Section 3 of Statute 316.1964, "When a state, county, or municipal parking facility or lot is being used in connection with an event at a convention center, cruise-port terminal, sports stadium, coliseum, or auditorium, the parking facility may charge a person whose vehicle displays such a permit a parking fee in the same manner and amount as it charges other persons."

However, pursuant to Section 8 of the latter statute, any vehicle with specialized equipment such as ramps, lifts, or foot or hand controls, for use by the person who has a disability, or any vehicle that is displaying the Florida Turnpike Toll Exemption sticker, is exempt from any parking fees in Port Everglades.
Here is how to request free parking at Port Everglades:
At the entry of the Port Everglades parking garage, pull a parking ticket from the automated machine and get the attention of one of the parking agents in an adjacent exit booth. Advise that parking agent that you would like a disability waiver of parking. The parking agent will telephone for a parking supervisor who will come to the booth and examine your vehicle to determine if the driver/vehicle meets the criteria for a parking waiver. The parking supervisor will inspect the vehicle to determine if a Florida Turnpike Toll Exemption sticker is affixed to it and/or if the vehicle has specialized equipment and a hanging tag from the Division of Motor Vehicles verifying the equipment.
When the parking supervisor verifies that a disability waiver of parking is allowable, the driver's name and address and the registration number on the sticker or hanging tag will be recorded on the parking ticket by that parking supervisor and the parking supervisor will sign the ticket. At this point the driver will be given the parking ticket and directed to enter the garage.
Upon exit, the parking ticket with the recorded information and the parking supervisorís signature will be surrendered to the exit parking attendant and no parking fees will be charged.
Visit Toll Permits for information about the Florida Disabled Toll Permit Program and to obtain Florida Turnpike Toll Exemption sticker.

We have friends in Florida who cruise frequently-like 3 or 4 times a year. He has a handicap sticker (uses a cane but no wheelchair or scooter) and he always parks for free at Miami BUT NOT AT ANY OTHER PORT. Baltimore does have a courtesy shuttle for the handicapped from the parking lot to the terminal.
