    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.

    We are using EZ Cruise parking in three weeks - we would have prefered BOI but they didn't have any availability for our cruise.

    Please forgive the dumb question. Is there a reason people don't use the actual Port of Galveston Parking lots? I am guessing it is because they aren't covered but is there another more important reason?

    Thanks,

    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?

    This will be my 6th time to cruise out of Galveston, and i have always took the word of the boards that the private lots are cheaper with better service. I have heard horror stories of getting stuck in traffic inside the Port's official parking. However, I have never actually tried it to compare. :blush: I always choose based on reviews from past users.

    i dont believe they are parking for the DCL cruises at Park n Cruise, they have too many ships in town in the winter/spring, so i guess they cant handle all the cruise lines. :confused3 we use them for CArnival all the time, but they were not doing Princess either so we used BOI Valet which is right across the street too and covered.:)

    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!

    we dont use them because they are farther away and seem to take FOREVER to get from their to the ship, we use the one's located right across the street so we can walk the one block to the ship. much easier when you arrive back to walk the one block, get in your car w/o any traffic.....you have to book early for them as they do fill up. one is Park N Cruise the other is BOI Valet , which i believe is owned by Park N cruise!

    funny thing is when i got my confirmation from BOI VALET it says
    FROM "Park N Cruise" on the return email address....so they must be owned by Park N Cruise?
