Port Canaveral Cruise Parking Options

Port Canaveral’s parking options are somewhat limited. Because the port sits on a spit of land about five miles from the mainland, space for parking lots is somewhat sparse. However, there are still some options available as long as you don’t mind a shuttle ride. Otherwise, official port parking is available right next to the cruise terminals for a higher fee.

List of parking lots for Port Canaveral

Port Canaveral Official Parking: Parking at the port is the most convenient. Parking lots and garages are next to each cruise terminal, making for a very short walk to check-in. The problem is that you pay a lot for that convenience — up to $21 per day. Parking for a 3-day cruise runs $64. Parking for a 7-day cruise runs $128 (about $18 per day). Given the proximity of the lots to the cruise terminal, we wouldn’t blame anyone for paying the high prices. However, cheaper options are available.

Cost: $18-21 per day

Park Port Canaveral: Located about three miles (5 minute drive) from the cruise terminals, Park Port Canaveral is one of your only options for off-site cruise parking. Rates are very fair — if booked online and paid ahead of time, the daily rate is $6.95 plus tax (rates are $1 more if paid at the lot). The lot offers a complimentary shuttle to and from the port.

Park-N-Cruise: Park-N-Cruise is also about three miles from Port Canaveral, but due west. Rates are $6.95 per day and parking is in a fenced, gated and locked lot. Note that the $6.95 rate is for reservations booked online ahead of time. RVs and other oversized vehicles are an extra free. Of course, a shuttle will transport you back and forth from the port itself.
