  1. Thank you both for your answers. It certainly sounds like it is for more able-bodied people than us but it also sounds fun - we have 5 sea days and I am worried that DH may get bored. I will ask as Passenber services!
  2. It actually sounds interesting to us - never had a tour! Is it possible to do with a Rollator Walker?
  3. My SIL rented a car to drop off at Newark Airport and had originally wanted an Enterprise as it is located in our town and more convenient. They would also have had to pay a drop off fee at Newark Airport so they rented from someone else. We won't be renting a car but just paying the high shuttle/Uber fees! Won't think of it on the cruise! Part of the cost of going! When you add the car service to JFK ($275 Round trip and then the charges from LAX to San Pedro and back again to LAX) we will be paying almost as much as the RT air fare JFK to LAX! I guess everyone has to make a living!
  4. Thanks, DaveOKC. That is good to know but since the rules at LAX change after 10/29, I guess I will have to see what the procedure will be then!
  5. Thanks, I guess I will have to stop obsessing and wait until closer to our cruise which is in May!!
  6. Interested in all that everyone has to sat. My question is about uber/lyft/taxi from LAX to Crowne Plaza. If you take Supershuttle, do you also have to take a shuttle to get the shuttle?? Or can they pick you up at terminal.
  7. Well, thanks for everyone’s help. We did book Crown Plaza and since we had to pay already, we are going to be very happy there!! This way, we don’t have to fight traffic day of trip and we also will be hungry and tired (flying 6 hrs from JFK) and we can take care of that so we will be rested for our cruise!! Thanks!
  8. Theres nothing wrong with it per se-- just nothing to see or do. Its an industrial port surrounded by a so so residential area. No where to walk-- we felt very boxed in the night we stayed at the Doubletree. I sort of look at it this way-- Im going to spend money on an Uber from the airport to the pier anyway. Santa Monica is pretty close to the airport so the fare is nearly the same and is on the beach with a ton of fun restaurants and nightlife. Just would rather be there than in an industrial port town. Thank you for this information - might try your idea, too!!
  9. Thank you so much for this information about hotels! It really helps to have someone knowledgeable about the area - we are grateful. I will due my research on the hotels you mentioned - and try to stay away from the Best Western!! Have a good trip in January and two in July! You certainly have the info I need!
  10. What a lovely looking pool! Thanks for the info
  11. Just wondering if the Terrace Pool on Golden Princess is open to all and if it has stairs to enter pool- not ladders. If it doesn't have ladders, is there any pool available that does have stair entry to water? Thanks.
  12. That is what my son says he uses and it is easy. I guess we will just have to join the rest of the world and not be complete luddites! Thank you! Do you have a hotel at Princess Cruise dock that you recommend?? I have looked on TripAdvisor and I have seen some listed there, Best Western Plus Sand Pedro is the one I have been leaning towards.
  13. Hallux-that sounds like a good idea, also. We will do some serious thinking!
  14. Thank you. I didn’t realize airport and cruise port are so far away. Do understand traffic in LA is awful!! I guess we will get a hotel near port and Uber from LAX to there. Does that sound like a good plan?We are not coming to Cali early-just staying night before cruise.
