Hello. Going on the Splendor this November. I like to plan things early. We will be landing a LAX at 11:00 AM and will have a rental car for about 24 hours before the cruise and will be staying the night in Long Beach. So here is the question. What do we do? I have been to Hollywood, Glendale, Pasadena, Santa Monica and Burbank once before. My wife has never been to California. Remember, we do not have a lot of time. Do we go to Malibu? Santa Monica? Hollywood? This will be a Saturday and the Sunday morning before the cruise. I appreciate any tips that you may have. Thanks.
1983 Carnivale (Honeymoon cruise)
2008 Liberty (25th anniversary cruise)
2009 Splendor (November)
When we sailed on the Pride back in 2006....we had a full day when we got OFF the ship...since our flight did not leave until the next day.
We rented a car and hubby (who goes to LA all the time on business) took us on a tour. We saw Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive. We went to Venice beach. We had a blast!!
Get a map...make sure you know where you want to go and plan it out.
