as you can see some post never get a reply. many of mine are still missing any help
. although i have not been to san diego i will be sailing from there on a future cruise so i have doing ALOT of research for things to do and a place to spend the night. i read alot of members mention a grocerie store called ralph's ( i looked it up on the internet and they have alot of stores in the downtown area ). also across the street from the bestwestern bayside inn on ash and 5th ( 3 blocks from the dock ) is a drug store. i would think the holiday inn 1 block from the ship would also have a gift shop for picking up any supplies you might need. there should be 7/11's and such around there also. i hope you find a place that is close.
are you staying the night before or flying in the day of the cruise.
