You asked about the least expensive. If you take BART from SFo to the Embarcadero the fare is $8.65 each. There are Senior and child fares but require a special ticket, which I do not believe are...

BART is the cheapest short of walking. When You get off at the Embarcadero stop, come up and walk a little over a block and take the street car "F" line. That will involve a little lifting of luggage...

One can only wonder is there are so few US Pax BECAUSE P&O doesn't care about them. Princess certainly has its share of UK passengers. It is a matter of priorities-On one P&O cruise we and a Canadian...
Memories-The older I get the bettter they were
