I'd like to hear from those that have used both EZ Cruise Parking and 81st Dolphin Parking. From what I have heard 81st Dolphin is approximately 5 miles awayand EZ Cruise is one block away. I have been told that 81st is further away but it is less conjested and easier and faster to get to your ship whereas EZ Cruise is just the opposite. 81st Dolphin will shuttle you and your luggage to your ship. Does EZ Cruise do the same? I would like to hear your experiences.
Either will be fine. EZ cruise is close and yes you can walk to your car if you know where you are going. The parking in Galveston is close to the port. Just don't take the first place because it is far away. They get unsuspecting cruisers who see their sign first. Usually because the parking is so close my hubby drops me off with the luggage and then he parks and walks back from EZ cruise. One time we were early so we parked and took the shuttle together. EZ cruise costs less and is on a raised cement foundation in case of rain its higher but thats not a big deal.You can reserve EZ cruise early and get a discount too.
EZ cruise is great. Have used twice and stayed at motels twice. For EZ cruise you can go online and prepay and have that over with. It literally takes no more than 10 minutes to walk from EZ Cruise parking lot to pier if you want to. Drop your luggage and wife off and then park. If you get there before 12:00 you will have to walk. After that there is continual shuttles that will take you and your luggage.
