We took Rhapsody out of Tampa on Feb. 9. Are you taking her out of Galvaston?
Parking at pier in Tampa was wonderful experience. Can unload car right at the pier and then park in garage directly across the street. Cost of $10/day payable in advance. When we returned, the porter actually hauled our luggage over to the parking garage and loaded them right into the trunk - and we were on our North again.
Enjoy your cruise on Rhapsody. We've been on Legend of the Seas and Splendor of the Seas - and Rhapsody was every bit as nice. The captain was WONDERFULLY HUMOROUS.
We cruised on the Rhapsody out of Galveston in December. Parking is at a large fenced lot about a mile from the pier. I believe the price was something like $8 or $9 a day, paid in advance in cash. A shuttle bus takes you to the ship and brings you back. It is a very slick and well run operation.
My husband and I sailed on the Rhapsody out of Tampa on 2-16. What fun that Captain was! We would run indoors just to hear him! At the Crown and Anchor reception he had us rolling on the floor with laughter! Just imagine a Norweign Foster Brooks......minus the drunk act but just as funny.
