Cruise Parking welcomes bookings from disabled passengers. Please call their office after you've made your booking to discuss your requirements. Vehicles of all sizes are welcome. However, there is a surcharge of £2 per day for vehicles longer than five metres, including vans, camper vans and cars with trailers.

Each booking entitles the return transfer of four passengers between the car park and cruise terminals. Each additional passenger will incur a £10.00 transfer supplement payable at time of arrival. Bookings can be cancelled up to 24 hours prior to departure subject to a £10 administration fee. Arrival at the car park less than two hours prior to vessel sailing may result in bus transfer refusal.

Huddersfield GB
We were extremely late getting through customs as our cases were taken by some other travelers. Our transport waited patiently without any issues.
When we arrived they were expecting more documentation than we had. However this didn't cause a major problem or delay us.

Welling GB
Good efficient service
One passenger on return told me her case had been lost between cruise parking and getting onto boat, still had not been found on her return from cruise 2 weeks later, is there anyway cases from cruise parking to ship can be checked on so you know if it is definitely the cruise ship's fault. I personally waited to see my luggage was off loaded from parking bus and then boat porters took it to ship.
