We live in Ft. Lauderdale and almost always cruise from Ft Lauderdale. Parking is $12.00/day and is located right across from the cruise terminal. Take the 595 exit(which leads directly into the port) and follow the signs with your ships name on it. The Jewel of the Seas usually sails from cruise terminal 25 or 26. Their is a security check point before you get to the area where the ships are docked. Ask anyone their for directions and they will be glad to help.................Bon Voyage!
