I found the people at the port nice both getting on and off the ship. The Elation is a nice ship, the service is good, but the ship is loud as well as some of the people on the ship. I would rather have a...More

Best cruise port ever. We parked literally in the 2nd row from the gangway to the Carnival Elation. Two minutes from parking lot to ship. Cocktails please!!

I love having a parking area that is conveniently walking distance to the cruise boat. The only reason that I didn't give it a five star is because they are a bit pricey.

Elation looks a lot better with its recent makeover. But the port REALLY needs to expand its parking and facilities. No room for incoming cruisers if the outgoing cruisers are late leaving. The last two times leaving from this port we were turned away and...More

Jaxport home of Carnival Elation cruises. Roll your own luggage right up to the ship. Cruise was excellent. Friendly staff, great food, awesome entertainment. Our first cruise with Carnival but definitely not our last !!!

You will need to call the terminal or Carnival for this info as it is not posted anywhere. I doubt there is a fee unless you park. They do check ID etc when arriving. Port phone number is (904) 357-3006
