  1. Thank you for the shuttle information, I appreciate it. If we use this hotel in the future, we would use hotel points as well. We would also be flying into Long Beach and not parking at the hotel.
  2. Is there a cost for the shuttle to the pier from the Doubletree?
  3. If you want a popular small boat vendor, it is best to book as soon as possible as they tend to book up quickly. We are big fans of Glacier Wind Charters for whale watching. Small boat experience with excellent customer service. Here is the link to their website. You can also check them out on Trip Advisor. We have gone with GW numerous times and will be going with them again in May of 2020. https://www.g-wind.com/
  4. Just got off a California Coastal cruise. We purchased 2 future cruise certificates. While on board, we used onecertificate to book a Mexico cruise in February and one we will save for Alaska (whenever the 2021 cruises come out.) There were no extra perks for booking on board -- only perk was OBC associated with the future cruise certificate.
  5. Having just returned from my cruise, I no longer need an answer to my question.
  6. Glad to hear Jayleen got back to you. Please come back to the board and let us know about your whale watching experience in Sitka -- what company your used and what you saw.
  7. I don't recall seeing one. However, if the hydrophone is of importance to you, contact Jayleen directly and ask. I am sure she will be happy to answer your question.
  8. Thanks for the reply. I think we will opt for early walk off, take a cab and depart from Long Beach.
  9. Thanks for your post. We are very familiar with the travel times to LAX during the week/weekends as we used to live the SoCal area and would often travel to LAX. I think we are going to opt for a Long Beach departure since we will be leaving during the week.
  10. Thanks everyone for your comments, they have been very helpful.
  11. Do you remember how much the cab ride was from the port to LGB?
  12. Thanks for the new input, I appreciate it. "jondfk" will look into Long Beach airport as well.
  13. Thanks -- thought it might have to be an afternoon flight.
  14. We will be taking a short 5-day cruise to Mexico on the Royal Princess in February. Has anyone encountered delays in disembarking from the Los Angeles terminal? If so, were they extensive? Trying to nail down a flight home. Right now the Princess cruise itinerary shows the ship arriving Los Angeles at 6:15 AM. We will probably use the Princess transfer program. Thanks in advance for your help.
  15. Happy to hear. Have a great whale watching experience.
