Parking at PC

I will be parking at the port terminal in our upcoming cruise and I think I read that there are porters on the second floor of the parking garage Anyone have experience with this? THanks

I don't recall seeing porters on the second level of the garage. When you enter the terminal complex, you will show your ID to security at the entry gate to the terminal. From there they will have you pull up and drop your checked bags curbside near the terminal with the porters. Once you drop your bags, they will direct you to the garage to park your car.

We got there early and had to run our checked bags down to porters. I did this while my family waited and came back up to wait for the terminal to open.

How early did you arrive? I am thinking we were there around 10:30'ish for our last cruise but can't remember. PAT is 11.

Is there a discount or advantage to prepaying?

No discount. The only advantage I see is having another part of your vacation paid for beforehand. Parking at the port is never an issue when it comes to availability.

Exactly I didn't notice a disc either but that's one less thing to worry about. I love being able to prepay.

Thanks all for your help. BTW, are the discount coupons for the parking only available at participating hotels or can you snag them elsewhere? We are staying at the Residence Inn and I have not seen that one mentioned as a hotel that gives them out.

They are only available from select hotels. So obviously, you wouldn't want to prepay for your parking if you are staying at one of the hotels offering the 40% off coupon. I don't think Residence Inn is one of the participating hotels.
