Where Can I Park My Car at the Port of Fort Lauderdale on Holland America Line

Be prepared to pay $20 a day to park in one of 3 covered garages that are next to the cruise ship terminal. You will pay upfront (cash, major credit card or US traveler's check only) – not when you leave. (verified August 2010)

There are several offsite parking lots with shuttles to the Fort Lauderdale port – the savings can be significant. If you are arriving by car the night before your cruise, several of the hotels in the area may let you leave your car in their lot while you cruise. However, you will need to stay at least one night before your cruise – look for "Park 'n Stay" rates advertised by the hotel. These hotels usually have a shuttle to take you to and from the cruise port. (verified April 2010)

Money Saving Advice when Buying a Azamara Club Cruises Cruise

  • Best advice we can give: the earlier you book, the better. Prices for early bookers tend to be lower, and, the best cabins on Azamara Club Cruises ships book first.
  • We show all discounts. When you search for cruises on our site, we will ask questions that will qualify you for the best available rate – are you over 55, active or retired military, past passenger (Mariner Society) with Azamara Club Cruises, etc.
  • If you are flying to your cruise departure port, buy your air separately from your cruise. You will almost certainly find a better deal versus buying your air ticket with your cruise.
  • Never pay a service fee to book a cruise. There are web sites who will charge $24.99 to book a cruise with them. We can book you the same cruise for the same price, and, we do not charge service fees.
