Sailed on Monarch of the Seas from this port. If you're flying in the same day the ship sails, some type of "arranged" transportation is good; however, if you wanted to rent a car, here's what I did. Budget-Rent-A-Car has a office in LAX and in Long Beach, CA. You can drive the car one-way from LAX to the satilite office in Long Beach, CA to drop it off. No additional fees are associated with a drop off at this location. They then have a free shuttle to take you to pier (about a 10 min ride from their office). On the way home, you can have them pick you up at the pier and bring you to their office for free to re-rent a car to get yourself back to LAX. Good Luck!
