Carnival Mardi Gras Parking in Port Canaveral
Parking directly at Port Canaveral is expensive, so it’s no secret that many cruisers choose to park off site. But with extra fees and hidden costs appearing sneakily at checkout, the savings are never as great as they initially seem. So how do you find the actual lowest price for Port Canaveral cruise parking for your Carnival Mardi Gras sailing?
Look no further, Go Port’s FREE cruise parking package, exclusively offered for Carnival Mardi Gras cruisers, is the absolute best price in the Port Canaveral area. When you book with us, parking for your cruise is included with just the purchase of transfers to and from your ship.
What’s the catch? We can assure you there isn’t one. In fact, the incredible savings are just the beginning of what makes Go Port’s cruise parking stand out from the rest!
Here are 7 reasons why you should book free cruise parking in Port Canaveral with Go Port:
Reason 1: We are the LOWEST PRICE of all Cruise Parking Options
Pay per stay, not per day with Go Port’s flat rate pricing. Let’s take a look at other cruise parking options to compare how our pricing is unmatched:
Other Offsite Parking Lots | Pay Per Day: Beware of changing daily rates, hidden fees, and taxes. For starters, a Carnival Mardi Gras cruise from Port Canaveral is typically 8 days. When it comes to the “pay per day” pricing structure, each day your car is parked counts as a full day, even though your vehicle is not there for long on embarkation and debarkation days. Seems a bit unfair, right? You are also led to believe you are getting a deal with the “free shuttles” they promote for 1-4 passengers, but don’t be fooled – there is no deal here. On top of that, when you calculate the 8 days of parking, the additional fees and taxes you find at checkout result in the final total being far more than expected (especially if you forget to apply the coupon code they require to get the rates advertised). Now let’s break it down:
Typical Offsite Port Canaveral Cruise Parking Lot:
(8 days parking x $12.95 per day) + $0 shuttle transfers + $15.28 taxes/fees = $118.88 total
Go Port | Pay Per Stay: Upfront, flat rate pricing that doesn’t change at checkout or charge hidden fees and taxes. Ready for simple? Go Port’s FREE Cruise Parking Package is $0 for cruise parking and only $60 total for roundtrip cruise shuttle transfers for up to 4 passengers and $20 for each additional passenger up to 6! No promo code to enter, no taxes and absolutely no hidden fees added. It’s just $60 flat for the duration of your Carnival Mardi Gras cruise!
(8 days parking x $0 per day) + $60 shuttle transfers + $0 taxes/fees = $60 total
Reason 2: ALL Go Port Parking Spaces are Paved
Surprisingly, many cruise parking lots for Port Canaveral are not paved. Although their websites may show you pictures of paved parking, this is only available for a few select spaces. And if you want one, unfortunately you are going to pay a premium for it. Considering Florida’s tendency to rain quite often, this is incredibly inconvenient. The last thing you want to do is drag your luggage through muddy grass and ruin your vacation sandals! With Go Port, EVERY parking space is paved and lined, ensuring the cleanest offsite parking experience around.
Reason 3: Go Port’s Cruise Parking is Lighted, Gated, and Video Monitored
For the safety of you and your vehicle, our lot is lighted, gated, and video monitored 24/7. Know that your car is in good hands and under careful watch while you sail stress-free. Plus, you get to keep your keys with you!
Reason 4: Direct Transfers to Carnival Mardi Gras at Terminal 3
Go Port’s lot is exclusive to Carnival Mardi Gras cruisers. This means you get express transfers with our courteous drivers directly to your ship at Terminal 3, just minutes away from our parking plaza. We’ll get you to your ship right on time!
Reason 5: Covered, Cushioned Seating and State-of-the-Art Restroom Facilities
You won’t get rained on at the Go Port Plaza! Our check-in area is covered and filled with plenty of cushioned seating with complimentary chilled water to keep you cool in the hot Florida heat. The premises also feature brand new commercial rated air-conditioned restroom facilities, which are ideal before and after a long car ride! Multiple stalls eliminate lines, and there is even a separate private stall with a changing table to provide convenience and care for the little ones.
Reason 6: Luggage Loading Spaces and Carts Available
Another standout feature is designated luggage loading spaces located right in front of the check-in area. Here you are welcome to utilize our complimentary luggage carts to keep all your belongings together before you board your shuttle.
Reason 7: Go Port’s Free Cruise Parking Port Canaveral Features Award-Winning Service
Most of all, Go Port is recognized for providing 5-star service. We have friendly, knowledgeable greeters onsite, as well as luggage assistance to load and unload your luggage with care and efficiency – making sure your experience goes smoothly every step of the way.
Don’t just take it from us! See what cruisers say about parking with us:
“We pulled up to Go Port plaza and were directed to a luggage drop off and check in. After parking our car, there was a wait of a few minutes to fill up the bus and we were off to the port. After disembarking the cruise, Go Port had a representative at a highly visible kiosk that got us on the bus and back to our car in no time. We will use them every time we cruise from Port Canaveral. Highly recommend.” – Jeff Smith | Google Reviews
“Easy. Friendly. Helpful. Parked for cruise, they handled the bags. Drop off and pick up was a breeze. Would recommend!” – Brandon Brinko | Google Reviews
