I got an Inspiration cruise booked, and I'm staying at Queen Mary the night before. How long is the walk between the two, and can I just walk over?  Or do I need a shuttle of some sort, because of port security or somesuch?

Again - thanks for taking the time to assist Carnival "sailors"!!  We will be sailing on August 24th and arriving with our Motorhome (towing a Jeep).  Total length is about 42 feet.  Is there a "surface" lot at the terminal where we will be able to park ?  Thanks again!!

 

In this Google Map image you can see the QM and the 1132 Queens Highway open parking lot.

 

So for Landlocked, you can see how close they are. For Geno, I don't know the rates or rules for 1132-1144 Queens Highway parking lot, but it is there.

If choosing to walk the mile from the Residence Inn to the cruise terminal, is there a “safe” path/sidewalk or are you walking along the road?

There is a sidewalk, but cutting through the DoubeTree (Hotel Maya) parking lot is probably shorter.

It might take you longer to walk from your room on the Queen Mary to their front desk than walking from their entrance to the cruise terminal!

 

Sometimes I have seen bell boys at the QM taking people’s luggage from the hotel to the terminal garage which is slightly further away. In case you want to check your luggage in, you do that with the porters who are located at the parking structure.

What about transportation to the San PedroCruise terminal from the QM?

As it is now, the situation on Saturdays is already unbearable. I feel for the employees of the guard company who work in and around the structure.

 

 

Heard on another thread in this forum that at least twice in the last month (the June 29 and July 27 cruises) that the QM rents out the parking structure for weekend events and they don't let the week long cruisers park there, forcing them to go off site.  Do you know if there's any way to find out when the QM is going to do this?

Call the QM and ask them.

Hi AgentMinusOne,

 

I was working as a port supervisor for RCI and other cruise line in Spain. 😉

I'm planning to sail on board Carnival Splendor out of Long Beach to Singapore before she will go to the dry dock next Oct.

Do you know how easy / difficult Los Angeles airport is as an entry point for Europeans (customs, etc.)? 

My travel agent offers free pre hotel (Crowne Plaza San Pedro) how much a taxi costs from the hotel to the port? What will be the best time for check-in for Carnival Splendor?

 

Thanks for your help!

What's the best way to get from LAX to a Long Beach hotel for a stay the night before our cruise?  We'll be sailing Panorama 5/23/20.  First time leaving from the west coast.

Yes, there's an open lot next to the garage where RVs can park.

Best or cheapest? Just two people?

 

If you are patient and can tolerate delays, SuperShuttle shared van is inexpensive.

 

Personally, I'd use Uber.

 

My next choice would be a private van like Zippy or Karmel.

Can you tell where if there is a store close where I can buy canned soda and a bottle of wine? We plan to eat at the pier area where the small boats are docked if you know of somewhere close to that area. Thanks.

 My wife and I require transport after our cruise september 2019. We arrive in Long Beach at 9.00 a.m and require transportation to LAX asap. Should we organise with a cab company prior to the cruise or is there always enough cabs onsite. We are hoping to disembark as quickly as possible. What is the best form of transport to get to LAX and at what cost? any ideas would be appreciated, Thanks

We are cruising on the inspiration in September on a Monday and have booked the Queen Mary for Sunday night. Can we park at the cruise parking structure or do we have to park at the hotel parking Queen Mary and than move the car to the structure Monday morning? I do realize there may not be parking at the cruise structure due to cruises being out but if not just wondering if we have to exit and than come back in for the cruise parking Monday morning. I know I can call the Queen Mary but thought I would ask experts here first. Thank you.

We've been denied parking (regular car) because of QM events.
