We are in the east bay, Walnut Crek area. We are not staying in the city the night before but I was trying to find info for my in-laws who are coming from Oregon the day before. We will be driving in and using the parking garage. I was able to find out some helpful info about driving from a police officer that was working the pier while there was a ship due to sail a few weeks back. It's not a problem for us to get there.
Have a great cruise all!!
