Parking at the terminal in Galveston

When we have sailed out of Florida sometimes it took a very long time to catch the shuttle back to the hotel after the cruise. We are sailing out of Galveston in March. Is there someplace to park where we can just walk to the terminal?

My guess is they didn't get the memo about DCL changing the cruises from 8 nights to 4.

This is the number of the parking garage I'm using in January, give them a call. It's suppose to be across the street form the terminal.

409 789 0059

The last time we cruised out of Galveston, there wasn't a parking garage near. Of course things change and it's been a few years. I've asked a couple of friends on Facebook because I'd prefer to park in a garage than the fenced area near the port.


Edited
I did look at the link and I see one is listed. That's good news.

The parking on Galveston.com now has parking showing for 3/19. We just prebooked the lighthouse last night. The park cruise is not booking for Disnet..it is the one across the street. Oklamom...looks like we are on the same cruise.

parking in Galveston

This is directly across from the terminal and (I believe) very reasonably priced. It has both covered and outdoor parking and looks like they have the new dates for DCL on their calendars.

www.galvestonparkncruise.com/

We are using them this Saturday so will try to report back when we get home. We go to Galveston quite a bit and it looks very save - very high fences for outdoor, solid metal warehouse type buildingf for indoor. They are so close they don't even need shuttle service! You drop off your stuff, go park and walk right across the street to the terminal!

HTH

ETA: looks like they have the dates on the calendar but say 'sold out'. More likely, they aren't taking ressies yet. Will investigate Saturday and get back to you!

When I first booked our cruise I reserved a parking spot at Galveston Park n cruise, about a month after I received an email saying they no longer had room for my car and were refunding my money. I found a spot with BOI, hopefully the same doesn't happen.

We used lighthouse parking in Galveston. All spaces are covered and the lot is also fenced and elevated.

Used BOI for our Jan. 12th - 18th cruise, everything went perfect. As soon as we arrived at customs we called BOI, car was waiting at the door of the garage waiting to drive out. Would use them again in the future.

I am trying to figure out how BOI works. I have used EZ cruise in the past, and I didn't have any major problems. I didn't like being escorted to a "2nd" lot far from the terminal, or the fact that I had to tip a luggage guy, a driver and then the porter all separate. It wasn't a big deal as they did have excellent service, and our trucks were in pristine condition at the end of the cruise. I just wondered how the BOI valet thing worked. Do they pick up your car from the pier, or from the front of the lot? Do you walk your luggage across the street?

you drive to the garage and drop off your car, and i think you call them when you arrive back and they have the car waiting at the garage you dropped it off at, it's right on the corner at the PORT, directly across from the ships!
