Military housing availale if cruising from Los Angeles (San Pedro)

Recommended Posts

If planning to sail out of or into San Pedro (AKA Port of Los Angeles), military ID card holders may wish to save $$$ and stay at Ft. MacArthur which is very close to the cruise port. Ft. MacArthur is part of Los Angeles AFB. The Ft. MacArthur Inn can be reached at (310) 653-8296. The address is 2400 S. Pacific Ave., Bldg 37, San Pedro, CA 90731. If 0-6 and above, call LAAFB Protocol Office at (310) 653-2256.

I suspect you would have to be US military..

But call the Fort MacArthur Inn and ask them yourself. (I realize that it is a long distance call.)

There is also a nice Navy Lodge in San Diego, next to the naval station real easy to get to using all rail transport.

Do they offer a shuttle to the port? We're on the east coast and within a few hours from each of several ports but would love to take a cruise from the west coast some time.

We have stayed at Fort MacArthur a couple of times. It's basic military housing, comfortable, affordable but nothing to write home about. I'm sure they don't have a shuttle but it's not that far from port - maybe a 10 minute drive. You can Uber but you will have to drag your bags to the front gate because they don't allow Uber on base. At least that's what we were told. However, you will not be that far from the gate -- maybe a block.

If you're cruising out of the World Cruise Center (100 Swinford St. not Carnival Windsor Way), you might also try the Crowne Plaza Los Angeles Harbor Hotel.  If you use points (earned or bought), you avoid the tax.  It's a little bit more than Fort MacArthur+Uber, but it's walking distance to the port (about .4 mile to the port parking lot).  Just in case Fort MacArthur is full or you want/need to make reservations more than 120 days out.
