Cat Person-We too are flying in and have done this a number of times. When you come into the San Diego airport you have to go across an enclosed pedestrian overcrossing and down the stairs or elevator with your luggage to get a cab. Tell the driver you want to go to the cruise ship terminal-I think Shadow is the only one there that day although HAL Statendam will be there with us on return on the 21st. When you arrive at the terminal, the security guy will ask for your tickets and your passport or other ID (sometimes they ask for the driver's also, but not always). The cab will drive onto the pier and drop you off right at the entrance to the terminal and there will be porters waiting there to take you bags right from the cab. I usually give them $5 or so. Very painless other than lugging your stuff over the walkway at the airport.
