MSC TRANSFERS SERVICE

Park & Cruise

Driving to your departure port?

For local South African cruises:


Durban: 
Car parking is available only in Durban on a first come first served basis. The fare is R120 per car per night (valid for all car types), which will be converted into USD at the actual exchange rate and will be added to your onboard account. 

Please note: all vehicles are parked at the owner’s risk and MSC Cruises will not be liable for any loss or damage to any vehicles or articles therein, through any cause whatsoever. Drivers are required to sign an indemnity at the Port.


Cape Town: 
Parking facilities are not available at Duncan Dock. Parking at the Clock Tower area is also no longer available. 

Secure parking is available at Portswood Square and Breakwater & Granger Bay. These are however situated on the opposite side of the Waterfront and are not walking distance to Duncan Dock . Parking rates are determined by the car park rates. Drop and go is therefore recommended at Cape Town port.

For International Cruises 
If you’re looking for a hassle-free way to park your car and embark, then Park & Cruise is the answer.


LEAVE YOUR CAR IN SAFE HANDS 
Our new Park & Cruise option offers the most convenient way to take care of parking at each of the ports listed below. How it works varies from port to port, with a range of different services on offer, from valet parking to self-service parking in the immediate vicinity of the cruise terminal. So you can simply leave your car at the luggage drop-off zone and board the ship (in some cases as an alternative there is a shuttle bus service from the car park to the terminal and vice versa). Whatever your departure port, Park & Cruise makes life easier for drivers. Everything about Park & Cruise is designed to be simple, and that includes payment. The parking charge is added to your onboard account, which you settle before disembarking*. Then all you have to do is present the receipt to collect your car. 

BOOK THE WAY YOU PREFER 
There are two ways to take advantage of the Park & Cruise service. You can either ask your travel agent when making your reservation or book online in the “Already Booked” section, using your booking number. So when your departure date arrives, you can just park, embark and enjoy your cruise. What could be simpler?

ITALYAncona - Bari - Cagliari - Civitavecchia - Genoa - LivornoMessina - Naples - Palermo - Venice
