Problems posting to this site, hope you read this before the ship sails! My husband and I will be on the Star 1/24 also. We are from Milwaukee and hope to get out of here in time. Terrible snow storm. I read where the Bier Garten is a scheduled meeting place. I will look for you (burgundy knit pant suit, right?). I will check back this evening to see if there are any other responses. We factored in an extra day anticipating bad weather and we got it. We will fly to Los Angeles tomorrow, hopefully! Looking forward to warm weather.
I've just signed up to do the same cruise next February and would be more than interested to hear any comments you have. Are you planning on writing a review? BTW where is the NCL cruise terminal in LA? We are doing our own thing and having a few nights in Las Vegas prior to flying home to the U.K. and will need to make our own way to LAX.
I have thought about posting a review but I was ill with an infection and I spent a couple of days too sick to get off the ship and do more than sit or sleep in the cabin. I could write a limited review but I think I will just open myself up for questions.
The terminal is in the city of San Pedro. I would advice getting to San Pedro the evening before the cruise and staying at a hotel that has a shuttle to the pier the next morning. We stayed at the Marina Hotel and it was not a great room but they did have a shuttle to the pier and we were able to park our car at the hotel for the time we were gone. I have also stayed at the Sheraton in San Pedro and they also have a shuttle to the pier.
The weather was great. It was nice and sunny at all of the ports. It was actually a little hot in Acapulco.
I am so sorry you were sick; what a bummer. For those who are looking for a hotel with shuttle service, along with Sheradon the Hilton offers shuttle service. It is a little away from the main part of town, is an older property but reminds of something from picture of the second world war (I don't mean the hotel is bad, just the opposite) I just could almost see Humphey swimming in the pool or Clark having a drink at the bar.
