Storage or parking our car and van whilst on cruise

We are hoping to leave our car and van either in storage or at a van park for the duration of our cruise on Sun Princess April 2014. Can anyone tell me if there is there anywhere remotely near White Bay terminal to do this please?

Not at White Bay but Wilsons at Pyrmont/Darling Harbour has cruise parking wilsonparking.com.au/go/promo/cruise-parking…

You may have a problem parking the van at Wilsons.

They have a 2m height restriction at the Harbourside location. You may have to leave the van at a van park for the duration. Paying for both the van park and the car park is going to be a pricey exercise.

Do you really need to bring the van?

I agree with Eva, it will be a costly excercise.

Are you travelling from Moama as on your profile? If so, dare say it'll be cheaper to fly up from Albury, rather than drive up and pay for parking.

I am not sufficiently familiar with all the options, but perhaps one of the long term parks at the airport may suit. This one has 3.5m clearance: sydneyairport.com.au/go/…domestic-long-term

Thanks to you all for the replies. You have made up our minds and am now looking at flying from Albury, (leave the van there) which certainly works out less expensive than airport parking. We are taking the van as we are hoping to travel after the cruise.

You could consider leaving your car and van in an outer Sydney caravan park and taking public transport/shuttle into town. There is a very quiet park here in Camden I would think would not cost an arm and a leg, and then get a train from Campbelltown. I am also soon to cruise from Sydney and will be getting a taxi from Camden to Campbelltown and then the train to Circular. We sail from the OPT which is just a short walk from Circular, but if you sail from Barangaroo or White Bay the logistics are a little more complicated. We also often use a local shuttle company when flying O/seas who are very reliable.

Just a thought after your mention of travelling after the cruise.

Hi,

We are going on the Sun Princess in April 2014 and as we have a motorhome which we need to store we

have today spoken with Sydney Tourist Park at Miranda (029522 7143) . They have been very obliging and have quoted a very reasonable price to store our vehicle. This may help you in your decision. Maybe we might meet on the ship.

Just be aware and this is a heads up...

Miranda Tourist Park is more low cost residential people rather than as the name implies a "tourist park"

Please do not leave anything you don't want to lose in your van

Hi,

Thanks for the advice on the Tourist Park at Miranda. We will rethink about our plans.
