Default Miss the Ship?

Our flight arrives at LAX at 12:15 p.m. and the ship leaves San Pedro at 4:00. Are we cutting it too close?

Probably not, but I would be nervous. Any delays along the way could occur & cause you to miss the ship. They even have denied people boarding ships that arrived later than a certain time even though the ship was still there. [/b]

I can tell you from experience, that is cutting it close. Pray for no delays in your flight.

We plan to take a cab or town car service from the pier to LAX. This should give us some wiggle room, yes?

i am confused; on one post you say you arriving lax to get transport to san pedro; on another you refer to 'pier to lax.' assuming you mean the former, from where are you flying to lax? when is the cruise? in winter there can be horrible flight delays if you are routed through, say, chicago, or even atlanta, since it is a hub. lots of things can happen, but i hope they don't to you. have a great cruise.
