I would also like to go downtown and maybe see Chinatown and possibly get over to Haight Ashbury . I do not remember , but does anyone else know if you can buy a ticket on the cable cars from the pier to either of these areas.
There is a cable car turntable not far from Fisherman's Wharf. It is a short walk from the ship. You can buy your ticket on board from the gripman. It is a fun experience. Allow plenty of time. There may be a line at the turntable, and you will probably need to change for Chinatown.
Here is the map
