Help! Midport parking at Port Everglades Holland America

Recommended Posts

Help! I am trying to find out if it's possible to reserve parking in advance for the Midport parking lot or garage at Port Everglades. I know it's possible with Park-n-Go and other shuttle services, but my father, who is elderly, wants to park as close as possible to the ship. He does not want to take a shuttle. On the Port Everglades website there are rates, etc, but no link to pre-purchase parking. I know it's a big lot, but my father is nervous that it will fill up.

Suggest you post this on the Holland America Line sub forum as people who post there will have more experience of the parking garages etc.  https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/103-holland-america-line/

Actually, rather than posting to the HAL board, you should post to the Florida Departures board.

Thank you for your new thread on the Ask a Cruise Question forum that is for general questions about cruising. 👍 

 

Since your thread concerns cruising and parking from a specific port in Florida, I have moved your thread to the Florida Departures forum where it will be on-topic. It is our forum for all things about departing from Ft. Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Miami & Port Canaveral and Tampa. Please browse through the thread titles on the forum looking for threads of interest. You will probably find your fellow Cruise Critic members have already posted questions and received answers that will be of interest to you. Especially those answers from locals living in the area.

 

Cruise Critic is a great resource for all cruisers, whether new or experienced, and we are so glad you found us! emo34.gif  Please feel free to browse the Cruise Critic Community Categories list. Read a few threads in the different forums to get a feel for what each forum is about. Make sure you read any pinned threads on top of the first page of threads in a forum. You will find very important instructions or information there that will be helpful.

 

Please remember the following stated in the Guidelines we all agreed to follow when registering for our free memberships:

 

Browse Before You Post
Browse a topic first to see if your question has already been asked or answered by someone else. Also, many of the major cruise lines forums have a FAQ (Frequently Asked Question) topic that has been created by our members. Give that a try first. Browsing is your #1 best resource! Please post your messages in an appropriate topic so that you'll receive the best possible response. It is very time consuming to move misplaced messages that are in the wrong topics.

 

Anytime you need to start a new thread on a forum, first make sure you are in the correct forum for your topic. Word your new thread title in a way to help the members know exactly the information you seek. This greatly helps the members browsing through the thread titles and if they know the information they will reply to you. It is best to limit each inquiry to only one topic or concerning one cruise line, one ship, one port of call, etc. and of course, on the correct forum. emo3.gif  You will get more replies that way. Be sure to mention your cruise line, ship, port or sail date in your inquiry. It will help the members to have the information they need in order to help you.

 

I sincerely hope this information will be helpful. So sorry this is such a long post, but we are so glad to have you posting on the message boards! Just wanted to give you some of the highlights about being a member. emo35.gif

 

Happy sails,

To my knowledge there is no provision allowing you to reserve a space at any parking garage with the Port Everglades property. The Midport Garage is a large facility with plenty of parking spots available. If you arrive after 10:00AM you will be one of the first to park in the garage. By that time everyone from the previous sailings will have all ready left. To make things easier, get there around 10:00AM, drop luggage and family members in front of the terminal and then by yourself drive over to garage and secure your vehicle. Walk across the street to the terminal, meet up with family members and enter the terminal to check in for your cruise. I have never encountered a situation we’re the Midport Garage was completely full.

It won't fill up.  You are worried about nothing.  Always plenty of space.

Passengers are disembarking 'your' ship before you arrive at the port and freeing up parking spaces and that many (most?) passengers don't drive their personal vehicles to the port (they arrive via taxi, uber, lyft, shuttle, friend/family drop off, etc.).  In 10 years of reading this board and living in South Florida I've never heard of any of the parking areas at Port Everglades being filled up.  Enjoy your cruise!
