Taxi from Long Beach Airport to World Cruise Terminal LA.
I'm dropping off a rental car at Long Beach Airport and need to get to the World Cruise Center at LA Harbor for my Celebrity Summit cruise. I have heard that there are fixed cab fares for this route. Has anyone any experience of this and can tell me what fare to expect? My cruise is trans Panama Canal departing 31st March. Anyone out there joining us?
The last time we did it it was a little less than $40 plus tip. The price was not fixed however. There are some signs about fixed rates but don't believe everything you read because it isn't so in many cases.
My experience with cabs (though I have not done this route) is that if you see a sign about fixed rates then you should ask the driver before you get in if it is a fixed rate. If he says no, ask another one. If it seems unusual, look for some klind of authority to ask.
I have had many cabbies try to tell me it isn't true when there IS a fixed rate.
Cabbies, - you gotta watch 'em.
