Great tip!

Thanks for the tip. We were going to stay at my parents' rental about an hour away the night before and park at the port. It will be so nice to just wake up in the morning and take a shuttle.

Does anyone know how does the shuttle work once the cruise has ended and you have to go back to retrieve your car? Do you take your own luggage off the ship?

The night before you leave, you place all luggage (except the few items you need overnight/in the morning) outside your cabin door, and the crew takes it down to the holding area.

In the morning, when you disembark, you find your luggage (you'll have a pre-assigned luggage area) and a porter will help you take it thru customs to the shuttle stop.

Do you have to call the Shuttle when you are ready to disembark or do you set-up up a pick-up time beforehand?

Thanks to the OP for posting this and to everyone else for the details. I was going to book a room today for $140 when I saw this post. I was able to get the room $49 . . . with taxes $62.11. What a savings!! I also called the hotel to see if they could update the reservation to show it was 2 adults and 2 kids, since Priceline only lets you do 2 adults. Like others have posted, the person at the front desk said that all the Priceline reservations get a Kids Suite. She pulled up my reservation and confirmed that we were listed with a Kids Suite. Since its Priceline, I know they can change it, but even if they do, I'm thrilled with the bargain. Thanks again for the info!

I have never done Priceline but this really interests me. I would love to save some money. Right now we have a room booked at the Residence Inn and it isn't cheap. However we have 4 children so there are 6 of us. Everyone keeps talking about this kid's suite but does it tell how many people fit in a room anywhere? Also is the shuttle from the C I & S good? One of the resorts told me their service didn't start until 11am. That's too late for us. We like to leave for the ship an hour before that. Thanks for any help.

Congratulations, your price of $60 was accepted by Country Inn & Suites Cape Canaveral.

I just did this a few minutes ago for a night on 3/5 for our 3/6 cruise. Website was $141 and I got a room for $60 using priceline. Thanks for the tip and thanks to my sister for telling me about this tip !!

How did you like this hotel?

I'm ready to make my Priceline bid...one quick question! Has anyone stayed here and parked for their cruise? I'd like to know if my car will be parked safely there!

Thanks for your feedback!

we just stayed there sat jan 16th. It was an extra $20. The shuttle service was great and easy and yes your car is safe. We didn't buy but ended up with a 2010 cadillac dts fully loaded beautiful car as our rent car and had it parked there for 4 nights and came back and it was still there. I wouldn't leave belongings out in the open though.

I'll have to try again for my Wonder sailing and up it to $60. Wouldn't accept $49 or $52.

No Luck Here for 2/27

My BIL tried $60 tonight for our 2/28 cruise; no luck. Must be sold out of priceline inventory for that night (2/27). Oh well, time to come up with a Plan B!

We just used them with the priceline deal! Great suite (beds were a bit uncomfortable), but the kids suite was awesome! The cruise shuttle worked seamlessly....picked us up, dropped us off with our luggage, we tipped our driver and were on our way to the cruise! Then when we got off the ship, we called and he was there in less than 5 minutes, picked us up with our luggage, went over to carnival to pick up another couple and were back at the hotel in about 20 minutes time and we tipped again The continental breakfast was great too, plus they serve baked cookies in the lobby

I think they should at least release a few, for those of us who might be a little obsessive about planning ...they have no idea what they're putting us through

Recently

Has anyone tried this recently? I have never worked with Priceline for fear of what I may be getting for a hotel.

We are not going until October, is priceline a place you use for last minute deals or is this something an over obsessed person can do now?

TIA
