We are taking RCCL's SOS in August, and want to know of any hotels in the area that provide shuttles to the pier. In addition, are there any hotels that anyone knows of that would allow us to park our vehicle there while we are cruising, rather than paying to park at the pier (and avoiding the hassle of dropping off luggage, then parking, then getting back to the terminal)? Just curious.
If anyone knows of any, please let me know.
Thanking everyone in advance for their help, because everyone here has valuable info to share and are giving enough to do so!
It feels good to finally have another cruise scheduled! They are too few and far apart! But the budget dictates, unfortunately.
I just returned from Port Canaveral after our Carnival "Pride" cruise. I've got information on this very topic in my review on the Reader Reviews page. I paid $85 at the Hampton Inn for the night before and parking for the duration of the cruise. The room was very nice with a balcony facing Cocoa beach. There was also a mini-fridge and a microwave in the room. The pool area was VERY nice at the Hampton. This also came with a continental breakfast and shuttle service to/from the pier. You just have to tip the driver both ways. I would HIGHLY recommend this package!!! Call the Hampton Inn at Cocoa Beach and talk to Lance, he was VERY helpful!!!
May I also suggest going to Rusty's down at the pier (near the Cruise Ship terminals, just ask). Rusty's has a great "early-bird" special and a very cheap Happy hour from 3-6 everyday!
