We will be driving down in April and woulkd like to know about parking.
Several questions, what time will they allow you to board the ship?
Is there any problem parking, and what is the charge to leave your car there?
The parking lots for the ships are all very close and within easy walking distance. The charge is $10 per day paid in advance and in cash. If you are disabled Miami provides complimentary parking if you show your permit. Boarding the ships is just about always before 2PM and it has been as early as 11AM. Average time is near noon.
The only ship I have taken out of Ft Lauderdale is the Westerdam and the parking was directly across the street in a parking grage. The price was $10 per day and you paid when you left. They DID NOT honor disabled permits and we paid full fare.
