Where Can I Park My Car at the Port of Miami on Holland America Line
Be prepared to pay $20 a day to park in one of 3 covered garages that are next to the cruise ship terminal. You will pay upfront (cash, major credit card or US traveler's check only) – not when you leave. (verified August 2010)
There are several offsite parking lots with shuttles to the Miami port – the savings can be significant. If you are arriving by car the night before your cruise, several of the hotels in the area may let you leave your car in their lot while you cruise. However, you will need to stay at least one night before your cruise – look for "Park 'n Stay" rates advertised by the hotel. These hotels usually have a shuttle to take you to and from the cruise port. (verified April 2010)
When does my flight need to arrive in Miami for my Holland America Line cruise?
If you are flying in to Miami International Airport (MIA) or Ft. Lauderdale Airport (FLL) on the day of your cruise make sure you allow plenty of time to get to the ship. Holland America Line recommends arriving in to FLL by 2:00 PM and MIA by 2:30 PM at the latest on the day of embarkation. After your cruise, your flight should not leave before 11:30 AM from MIA and 12:00 PM from FLL. (verified September 2010)
What time can I board my Holland America Line cruise out of Miami?
Boarding for your Holland America Line cruise starts at 12:30 PM. If possible get there early to avoid the lines. You must be checked-in at least 90 minutes prior to the scheduled cruise departure. (verified December 2009)
How much does it cost to take a taxi from Miami International Airport to Holland America Line's cruise terminal in Miami?
Don't get ripped off – the cab driver should charge you a flat $24 rate each way from Miami International Airport (MIA) to Holland America Line's Miami cruise terminal. Yes, the cruise lines offer bus transfers, but, for two people, a cab is a cheaper, more efficient option (and you don't have to wait for a bus to be filled-up before leaving the airport for the cruise port).
