We want to stay in the city, Hollywood area, to maximize our time there, but it doesn't appear that the shuttles (Princess or private) operate from/to the hotels there. Would we have to return to LAX to catch a shuttle to the cruise port? Would we have to shuttle back to LAX and then into the city on our return? Time/money wise this would seem less than optimal. Any suggestions from anyone who has been in a similar situation?
there are many shuttle services that will pick you up at hotels in LA and take you to San Pedro. However, I would tend to agree to leave Hollywood for another time! You run the risks of wonderful LA traffic on the day of the cruise which would be stressful to say the least. There are a couple of hotels right across from the pier that have some good deals and provide shuttle to the ship. We are staying at the Crowne Plaza in San Pedro before and after our December cruise on the Sapphire. We are using 24-7 shuttle service as we have used them in the past and they are extremely dependable, not always easy to say about LA shuttles.
