Quick Question on San Diego Cruise dock

Recommended Posts

Hi! A quick question for those of you that have cruised from San Diego. I've posted this on the disabled board and there was a suggestion that I also post here.  How long is the walk to get on the ship in San Diego? We will be renting a scooter for my husband to use on our cruise but we were wondering how long the walk is from the dock onto the ship. He can walk  but will have a wound boot on and it can be tiring. I  was trying to decide whether or not we should request a wheelchair for embarcation. We are familiar with Ft Lauderdale and Baltimore but not the West Coast ports. Thanks for any help.

From the street, to the side of the ship as you board, the distance might be a quarter of a mile. Probably less. It is shorter than many other ports we have been in.

Agreed the nose of the ship almost touches Harbor Drive if you Google it.  In fact I just did and if you Google San Diego you can see where the ships dock.  From the street to the terminal entrance is probably less than 100 yards.  It's been a long time since we sailed from SD but it seems just when we have been there for a long weekend the taxis actually pull even closer than the street side.

This whale watching boat came in a little too close...

Yep, done that ship a couple of times.  But, never docked like that.  She does a spring to fall "happy hour" bay cruise that's much fun and we were on her for a July 4th fireworks cruise (totally awesome).
