I'm in the beginning stages of narrow my list that is why there are so many hotels. I don't know which are the best. However, I know the two areas San Pedro and Long Beach they are very close to each. San Pedro has more restuarants in walking distance, but Long Beach has the Attractions near by like the Queen Mary and the Aquarium of the Pacific. I hope that helps.

You are trying to tempt me that is so mean. I wish I could go with you guys I'm sure I would have a blast. But I can't move my cruise now and the airfare is too high. I can just drive to Long Beach.

Bob M - it may be tricky to find a good hotel in the LA basin where you can stay two nights for $172. I found our rate through http://www.kayak.com. They don't book the travel, they just aggregate prices. We got what I thought as a really good deal at the QM.

The Residence Inn (Long Beach downtown) is $366 for a Harbor View room for 2 days...
Also a smoke-free building...
No free breakfast though which seems strange...
But easy walking to the beach & other places to snack or eat lunch...

Man, I say even you don't save any money by coming in early... I say do it.... start your vacation a couple a days early... squeeze every minute you can outta your vacation...
In addition, by arriving on friday, your are pretty much guaranteed to get to the ship on time...

My sis and I have the friday before off, we are leaving 5 am friday morning, driving to Solvang, staying at our timeshare for 2 nights, then driving about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs to long beach.... scrumptious isn't it?

Doing the same on the way back only for one night....
Then two more days off before going back to work... now that's a vacation.

We save around $252 by taking a Friday flight so the $366 for 2 days would actually cost me an extra $114 for the 2 days (plus eating out)....
They have a regular room for $274 for 2 nights but we want to see the Splendor come into the harbor on Sunday morning... :o

Marinemom what a great birthday present. Sorry I haven't been to the Pinnacle Steakhouse.

Funmaker I was thinking about booking the Queen Mary I hear it's haunted, any thing go bump in the night when you were there?
Oh yeah, my daughter saw a ghost in her room, but she had some friends who were 3 sheets to the wind and they were asleep. She thinks it was all the activity of her surprise 23rd birthday party. I totally believe her. The Queen Mary is haunted, but nice if you are into that.
I heard in Stateroom B340 on the Queen Mary, where the purser was murdered, can't be rented it out anymore because it's too haunted. I just sent them an e-mail to ask if they have a Park N Cruise package. They said not at this time. So sadly I will be looking for another hotel. I have narrowed it down to the Crowne Plaza (San Pedro) or the Residence Inn (Long Beach) both have Park N Cruise packages.
Yeah it would be more fun to start vacation a day early but I need Saturday to pack. Queen Mary doesnt rent B340 anymore and they removed the number plaque but it is obvious where the room is. My daughter said even going near room B340 is pretty creepy. She loves staying on the B deck, but you would'nt catch me there. Too bad they dont have park N cruise anymore, but the other hotels you mentioned I am sure are fine.

Katlady--heh, my 40th birthday cruise is setting me back a fair sum--enough to rip carpets/vinyl floors out and put engineered floors inthe living room, kitchen, and hallway. I am solo, so I am paying 200%, thus, it is a wee expensive, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else other than on the deck of a cruise ship to celebrate my 40th!

Queen Mary--well, I sure hope that if it is haunted the ghosts stay away from my room....

Okay, okay, I know I only have 2 under my belt so far, but hey each time they get better and better.

... just sitting here reading the Carnival posts. I got on to take a look at Princess. Just booked with my friend Nicole for next March 14day on the Golden Princess to Hawaii. but it looks like people don't post as much on the Princess board. S I came her and found this. The is because I remember when you were afraid to go on your first cruise and now you are and ADICT!

It's so funny you are going to Hawaii cause check out this thread I started.
http://www.cruisemates.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=612273
Very briefly Cruisemates scheduled a 14 day Hawaiian cruise from Los Angeles, but then in was cancelled. That would be a great cruise for us California cruises because no flying.

Cruising 10/4 and 10/8? Somebody is going to miss the boat!
That is strange. There is a Splendor cruise on 10/04/09 and one on 10/11/09. So I will change IBCRUZIN to 10/11/09.

I am soooo stoked, this is going to be the best cruise ever....
Okay, okay, I know I only have 2 under my belt so far, but hey each time they get better and better.

... just sitting here reading the Carnival posts. I got on to take a look at Princess. Just booked with my friend Nicole for next March 14day on the Golden Princess to Hawaii. but it looks like people don't post as much on the Princess board. S I came her and found this. The is because I remember when you were afraid to go on your first cruise and now you are and ADICT!

It's so funny you are going to Hawaii cause check out this thread I started.
http://www.cruisemates.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=612273
Very briefly Cruisemates scheduled a 14 day Hawaiian cruise from Los Angeles, but then in was cancelled. That would be a great cruise for us California cruises because no flying.
Oh wow. Whey did it cancel? That would have been nice.

With all these Splendor cruises we better see some good reviews. Ferrangi, since youre first up we expect yours to be a good one. Then we can compare to our own and see how much is actually true. Pics would be good too but I know you will have that part covered.
