Thanks. Should have stated princess cruises.   Been to San Pedro many times but wasn’t sure as I knew LA had a port.  Didn’t want to show up at San Pedro if it goes out of LA.  I didn’t think so but the cruise critic folks are the best for great information!🙂

Some ships still sail from Long Beach I believe

 

Carnival Cruise line is ported out of Long Beach.  Sometimes....Princess stops for a day in Long Beach from a San Francisco itinerary.  

 

San Pedro is used by NCL, RCL and sometimes Celebrity (although Celebrity and Holland America usually depart from San Diego).

When the departure port says Los Angeles is that actually LA or San Pedro?   

Technically it's both - San Pedro is a neighborhood contained within the City of Los Angeles. The Port of LA is in San Pedro (which is in LA).

Yes, some ships do, but not Princess ships. 

Long Beach is almost exclusively Carnival.  If you are flying into LAX for a cruise, you need to be sure to specify which port you want.  The San Pedro one and the Long Beach one are close to each other but not walking distance.  I have heard a few horror stories about cab drivers who took people to the wrong one.

I live about 21 miles from the Port Of Los Angeles, this is my home port.  This is where you want to go to board a Princess Ship that shows the departure city as LOS ANGELES

World Cruise Center 100 Swinford Street San Pedro, CA 90731

IMO Shellbeachjim said it exactly right

Then add the Port Of Long Beach to the mix, basically next door.  Not confusing at all, right?
