Depending on the cruise/ vacation stay option you choose, parking options differ:

SUNSET CRUISES, OVERNIGHT STAYS and CRUISE & SNOOZE: Guests who have reserved the Queen Priscilla on occasions other than football weekends may park in the lot shared by Volunteer Landing Marina and Ruth’s Chris Steak House located at 950 Volunteer Landing Lane. Guests may only park in the spaces designated for the marina. These are located at the upper end of the parking lot – beyond the overhead bridge. Failure to park in these spaces will likely result in your vehicle being towed. A special parking permit must be displayed on the dashboard in the driver’s side window.

FOOTBALL SAILGATING: The marina parking spaces located at the upper end of the parking lot are NOT available to Guests for parking on football weekends. The best option on football weekends is paid permit parking at John H. Coleman Heating and Air Conditioning located nearby at 814 State Street. Upon arrival, guests may drop their gear at the marina, park their car in the Coleman parking lot, and take a leisurely stroll back to the marina. As a special consideration, your Host can assist you in obtaining Prepaid Parking Passes ($10) but they must be purchased before Thursday during the week of the game. To do so, full payment and the names of the people who will be parking their cars must be provided to the Host. Printed parking passes will be issued upon arrival. NO REFUNDS will be provided if parking passes are not used.
