  1. I suggest doing the Drums of the Pacific Luau excursion from Celebrity so you are guaranteed to make it. OLL is not so vastly superior that you HAVE to do it and no other luau.
  2. Using the Courtyard Marriott Fisherman's Wharf as a reference point, it is just about one mile, see the map below. https://goo.gl/maps/qEQtXx6whYApnqdT7
  3. Lorrie's is popular with locals, SuperShuttle is unpopular with everyone, but cheap for a shared shuttle and I use Uber.
  4. I think there is a lot of debate about the deliciousness of clam chowder in bread bowls. Most San Franciscans I know prefer a hunk of sourdough (preferably from Acme) with cioppino or crab bisque. Joe's Special was actually invented in the 1920's so it is approaching 100 years. How can you not mention Irish Coffee and the Buena Vista when talking about SF? It wasn't invented there, but it is where it was introduced to U.S. Also not a San Francisco original, but its home for almost 169 years, the Hangtown Fry at Tadich Grill, the oldest restaurant in California. Lastly, the Egg Custard Tarts at Golden Gate Bakery in Chinatown. I have no idea when they made their way from Hong Kong to the U.S. but they've been in SF for as long as I remember and Chinese from all over the Bay Area make the pilgrimage to GG Bakery.
  5. I'm a Princess and NCL cruiser these days mostly. I haven't been on Celebrity for at least 15 years. You might try the boards for your ship. I don't know if it is a function of the San Pedro DHS or the ships, but every time I've disembarked the last 5 years at least it has been in groups spaced about 20 minutes apart.
  6. $17 a day and you park right in front of the ship. See the map here.
  7. OMG, that is funny.... "been meaning to see that show for 45 years... and now it's closing already"
  8. People swim in pools year round here. The ocean temps in So Cal start dropping in mid October. It would be fine for cooling off, but not for long term exposure. The surfers probably won't be in full wetsuits yet.
  9. 8AM would be one of the early times, you might have to request that time to get it I think. Normally they space out the times over several groupsl
  10. What day of the week are you in SF? My two favorite restaurants in SF, the ones I try to eat at every time I am there, are Tadich Grill and Sam's Grill. For a special occasion I go to Quince or Benu.
  11. Last disembarkation is probably around 10:30AM. You can have a car service meet you at 11-11:15AM, or just call an Uber when you get outside the terminal.
  12. This is a 3 year old topic. Lots changes in 3 years.
  13. Look at the Columbus Motor Inn and its sister properties to start.
  14. "How good is ATT cell coverage in Canadian and US waters during the inside passage" Probably as bad as it is everyplace else.
  15. To answer the OPs question, Oahu is the only island you can get by without a car, but we always get one anyway. It's that "control" issue I have.
