It's about a 10 min ride. The shuttles are leaving all the time. They help unload your car and load it in the shuttle.

How are the lines for the shuttle when you arrive back at the port? One reason we are not doing two one-way car rentals is because we would like to get on the road quickly and have heard horror stories about the lines for the car rental shuttles...

The line was not bad at all. I don't think we waited more than 5 mins. for the shuttle.

Park Port Canaveral.com now a 24/7 secured lot!

This was new to me so I thought I would update. When we last used parkportcanaveral.com , the parking was behind an office building across from the Radisson and very economical. But some had mentioned that it was unsecured, and I don't remember there being any gated parking. IT IS GATED NOW! Someone posted that their 4/27 cruise had a 24/7 security patrol and was gated/fenced.

I had 2 great experiences with them before (but it was clear it was a new transition to the offsite parking area) and appreciate them investing into a secured parking area, so I will likely use them again (unless we get a miracle and get to fly in May! I doubt it though. If we have to drive the 13 hr leg again, I'll likely be using these guys again.) We have had great shuttle experiences with them and have appreciated paying 5.95 or 3.95 a day to park there! I see that is it now 7.95 (I'm sure due to the updated security) but that still makes it much cheaper than the Port.

Their website says:
Why Choose Us?

-100% Security Fenced Lot
-Free Shuttle to Port Canaveral Terminals
-Closest Off-Site Port Canaveral parking! (2.9 miles per Google)
-Lowest cost with online booking!
-No hidden fees!
-Double the parking capacity of
-Off-Port Canaveral competitors!
-The ONLY Off-Port Canaveral cruise parking on same island as Port Canaveral
-The ONLY 24/7 Patrolled Security!
-Largest fleet of Port Canaveral shuttle buses
-Port Canaveral Shuttles specially designed for faster loading & unloading!
-Only Port Canaveral fleet with own wheelchair lift bus

Just thought I would update since I wasn't in the 'know' either!

I used them in January and the car was safe and the shuttle was there when we got off the boat, no waiting. I will use them again.

Freee Breakfast too at the Hotel
Did the port only charge you for 4 days with that coupon? They normally charge for 5 days for a 4 night cruise, so seems like you would have paid $45???
