Whether coming from Baltimore, Washington, Philadelphia, or anywhere else in the surrounding area, then you likely know how difficult parking in the city can be. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be difficult to find a spot for your cruise. In fact, the Port of Baltimore makes it pretty simple.
Parking is right on-site at the port, located at: 2001 East McComas Street, Baltimore, MD 21230. As you can see from the map below, the lot surround the terminal and is just steps away. This makes it extremely easy for those with mobility issues or other difficulties getting from a distant lot to the terminal.
Unfortunately, there aren’t a ton of options or competition for parking. That means you are stuck with parking at the port itself. The good news is that Baltimore’s terminal parking is extremely convenient and not terribly expensive compared to other ports around the country. (Baltimore park & cruise hotels do offer more choices.)
What we like is that parking is relatively cheap — $15 a day for most cars. While the idea of shelling out $105 for a week-long cruise might not seem like a deal, considering that many other ports charge $20 or more, it’s a decent deal.
If you have an oversized vehicle like an RV, the rate jumps to $30 per day for those under 30 feet, or $40 per day for those longer than 30 feet. You can pay with cash, credit card (Visa, MasterCard, AMEX), or traveler’s checks. Unlike many other ports, you pay at arrival.
Alternative Parking Options
Given the port’s location within the city, there aren’t many alternatives around. If you do want to park somewhere for cheaper, however, look into hotel cruise parking.
If you are in the area and plan to stay a night anyway, then the cruise and park packages mean that you pay a little more for your room, but they let you keep your car at the hotel during the trip and offer you transportation to and from the port.
