It was my review, Helen! I just e-mailed you, so if you have any more questions, feel free to ask! As for the Sheraton, there were free shuttles to and from the port. We parked our car for a week in their covered, secure parking lot. I'm not sure how far San Pedro is from LAX. I think about 20 miles or so. But, the 405 can get pretty congested. Anyway, happy sailing to you!!
