Parking Rates at Cruise Ports

Parking at the port for your cruise can be expensive. Each port has its own rules, some allow you to reserve a place while most of them are first come, first serve.  They all take major credit cards (most take cash) and many will make you prepay when you arrive to park.  A couple ports even give you a discount if you pay online ahead of time.
