Now that there are 2 ships leaving from Cape Liberty, how are the availability of parking spits in the garage?

Cruised when it was just the Anthem and that was great. Prior to garage being built parked in between the buildings but noticed in March that area now filled with shipping containers.


Thanks for your help

There is plenty of open lot parking at Cape Liberty. IMO it's in the winter that the covered garage parking is important and there's only one winter ship. Don't get hung up on parking in the garage. It can be just as fast if not faster to park in the open lot.

Also I am interested... We will be sailing 06/04/17 on Summit. I am interested if we will get there by 1 pm (some spots would be taken by Anthem cruisers who will sail 06/08/17), would be any spots available?
Also if parking garage is filled, any open parking lot spots are available?
Thanks in advance,
Mike

As others have said there will be plenty of spots in the parking lot. The lot starts about the same distance from the terminal as the garage so your amount of walking will be about the same. The ship is longer than parking lot. There is no waiting to get to your car and once you get in just start the car and leave, no traffic.

We are planning to park at the Lot at Cape Liberty. What is payment like on exit? Take ticket and pay by credit card with ticket when exiting? Take ticket and pay at machine then just exit with paid ticket?

Also, is it confusing to get back to the terminal to pick up passengers and luggage?

Any info would be appreciated.
