Default Cruise package available at Jacksonville, FL

For anyone who will be driving to Jacksonville to take a cruise, the Wingate Inn (about 10 minutes from the port) is offering the following pre-cruise package for $104 + tax:
one night's accommodations;
free parking while you're cruising;
free shuttle to & from the port; &
hot breakfast on cruise day.

The real bonus in this offering is the free parking at the hotel while you're enjoying your cruise. The fee for parking at the port is $10 per day. We just booked our room at the Wingate for the night before our December 7th 14-day cruise on the Zenith. If we drove to the port it would cost us $140 just to park!

We can't comment on the quality of the hotel since we've never stayed there. However, we did check out their website and it looks fine to us. To reserve, call 904-421-5000 and ask for Bina Patel. Tell her you want the Cruise Package, and she'll give you all the details.

Since I live in Jacksonville do you think I could rent out my house for the precruise deal? LMAO
