  • Good news first. The people that work here were great. We had no issues with staff. Everyone was friendly. Bad new. I’ve been to a few ports. Charleston is a dump. Parking is confusing. We parked out in the open. The buildings around port look like they are about to fall down. Not joking. You can see through the roofs. $20 per day to park seemed high to not be in a covered garage.
