  1. They should be at full capacity by then. I don't think you have anything to worry about.
  2. Other lines have moved everyone into balcony cabins, leaving every other cabin vacant. The next sailing they use the cabins that were vacant on the previous cruise and use the week to clean & sanitize them for the following trip.
  3. Opoli has a black car service as well, they call it "executive" and the price is much better than Uber. I just priced a trip from LAX to the Westin in Long Beach. For pick-up right now, Uber wants $96 for black car service, Opoli is $55. Both can pick up at the terminal.
  4. Yes, black car service and executive car service are one in the same.
  5. Only "executive vehicles" can do curbside pick-up. LAX now has a new feature, LAX-it (pronounced LA exit) where everyone must go for a cab, uber, opoli or lyft. You can walk or take one of the shuttles that arrive every 5 minutes. https://www.flylax.com/lax-it
  6. Opoli is a nice alternative to Uber and lift with no surge pricing increases. https://www.opoli.com/#/search
  7. Opoli is a nice option instead of Uber or Lyft, with no surge price increases. https://www.opoli.com/#/search
  8. I usually opt for Uber over taxis, but they can take a long time to get into the port on a busy day, while there are already a ton of taxis waiting for you. It's not worth the wait, take the taxi.
  9. When making a claim, be prepared for them to examine the details in minutia, ie: the cheaper tour didn't include a free bottle of water.
  10. The last time we did this trip, we flew into LAX and since it was my wife's birthday, I opted for "black car service" which was expensive, but wonderful. Uber and Lyft are great options in Long Beach. The price should be the same or less than sharing a shuttle van.
  11. This is exactly what we are doing, changing planes in Denver, and flying into Long Beach the day before. Southwest had no non-stop flights from Atlanta to either LAX or LGB, so we opted for LGB, since it's closer to port, and both flights were priced the same.
  12. We are sailing on the Majestic in November, and are flying Southwest because we can always cancel/change without a penalty. They don't refund your money, but you can use it to fly at a later date. They just opened up booking dates to November 5th, the very same date we are flying into LAX. We'll have to book the return trip when they open up more dates later on.
  13. They'll initially sail with only 50-60% occupancy, so serving everyone in one of the dining rooms isn't as big of a problem as you may think.
  14. Prices will go up with demand, but we currently have everything we need booked through 2022. Hopefully, by the time we start looking at 2023/2024, things will be back to normal. If not, we can always put a small deposit down with hopes that the prices will drop at a later date. That's the one unique thing about cruising, small deposits and plenty of time to pay the balance off. You can't do that with resorts or airfare!
