Payment can be made online at the Parking page on our website, via text to pay at the terminal, the Premium Parking app, or at a payment kiosk near the elevators. Remember, we use your license plate number to validate the payment. If your vehicle is over 8'-6" tall (conversion van, car carrier) and will fit in a standard width space, it will be parked at our off-site lot for the same price as a regular size car. Minivans, SUVs, motorcycles, and trucks are considered standard vehicles.

  • 4-day cruise: $80.00
  • 5-day cruise: $100.00
  • 7-day cruise: $140.00

NOTE: Once the garage is full, we have an off-site parking area at the civic center a few blocks away. In this case, you would come to the garage first, unload your luggage, and a police officer will escort you to the off-site lot. An air-conditioned shuttle bus will then bring you back to the terminal. If you are parked at the off-site lot, a shuttle bus will take you and your luggage back to your vehicle after you debark and go through customs.

Minivans, trucks, and SUV's are considered regular size vehicles (see regular size vehicles above). Anything that will not fit in a regular size parking spot is considered oversized.

No, we are under Homeland Security Regulations and do not have an area where a person who is not cruising can park, wait, and wave goodbye. If you are dropping off a passenger please quickly say your "goodbyes" as you are unloading luggage.

  • Turn right onto Eslava Street and a police officer or a parking attendant will direct you into the garage.
  • A stevedore will help you unload and tag your luggage and then they will take your luggage. Please make sure you have your documents with you at all times -NOT IN YOUR LUGGAGE. Please allow the stevedores to take anything you do not want to carry around the ship with you.
  • You will then be directed to the garage ramp where you may park. Be sure to follow the signs and pay for parking if you haven't already paid online. Remember, it's your license plate that is used for parking payment enforcement.
  • Park and then walk to the glass doors at the north side of the garage.(opposite end of where you enter the terminal)
  • Come down the elevator/stairs to the lobby on the first floor where you will then show your documentation to the employees at the door. Afterwards, you will be directed to the screening area and to the check-in area.
